IEC was established in the year 1982 by R. Vijayraghavan. Vijayraghavan, who has been a Director of IEC, since its inception, and Managing Director since 1985, has more than 50 years of rich experience working on DC Machines. He started his career as a DC motor designer with BBC (now ABB) at Mannheim, Germany and returned to India after a 4 year stint. Subsequently, he joined Kirloskar Electric Company as a DC motor designer. This was at a time when the potential for DC motors was untapped in India with the industry unaware of the benefits of using variable speed drives for different applications. Vijayraghavan, then started to educate users and was largely responsible for promoting these motors in various applications in the Indian industry. It is due to these efforts that he is recognised as a pioneer who popularised the usage of DC motors in India.
