About HFCL

History of HFCL

In 1987, Himachal Futuristic Communications Limited was established by Mahendra Nahata, Dr Deepak Malhotra, and Vinay Maloo, marking one of India’s early private-sector telecom companies. The IT trio became one of the pioneers in the new-age telecom sector in India, establishing one of India’s first private telecom companies. It officially became a public limited company in May 1987, based in Himachal Pradesh.

HFCL strategically established manufacturing facilities within India to produce optical fibre cables, optical transport systems, power electronics, and broadband equipment for worldwide distribution. The company provided comprehensive solutions to both government projects in India and private sector clients on a global scale.

Since its inception, HFCL has consistently expanded its hardware integration efforts in telecommunications. In 1995, the company’s substantial ₹85,000 crore ($25 billion) bid for a basic services license in India played a pivotal role in driving the growth of the country’s telecom industry.

HFCL, in conjunction with its subsidiary HTL Limited, has emerged as one of India’s leading manufacturers of FTTH (Fiber-to-the-Home) cables, boasting an annual production capacity of 6 lakh kilometres. Notably, the company’s new FTTH plant has solidified its status as the largest optical fibre manufacturer in India.

In 2018, HFCL inaugurated its optical fibre manufacturing unit in Hyderabad. Currently, the company stands as one of the primary telecom project service providers for Reliance Jio, actively engaged in the rollout of 4G optical fibre cable (OFC) network services across Northern India.
