M/s Industrial Electronics & Instruments (ILI) was established in the year 1979 by Lt. Col. D. G. Tilak (Retd). During his service in the EME Corp, he had felt the need for indigenous Dash Board instruments and gauges that could be fitted on vehicles in the huge fleet of the Armed Forces. Also, instruments and gauges already fitted on various vehicles, including Special vehicles like Kraz, Ural, Tatra, Scania and Combat vehicles like T-55, BMP, unmanned dozer, etc., were to be tested and calibrated for vehicle worthiness.
Lt. Col. Tilak associated with the then leading manufacturer of instruments and gauges, “M/s International Instruments Ltd.” They manufactured gauges under the brand name “YenKaY”. With their support not only did ILI begin supplying instruments to the Defense Dept. but also designed and developed Testing & Calibrating Equipment for these gauges. The Testing Equipment were supplied to Service Centers of M/s IIL, pan India and later were supplied to the various Base and Field Workshops of the Indian Army. Today brand “YenKaY” has become brand “VDO” under Continental Automotive Company (India) Ltd.
The unit which started in a 200 sqft shop, today, boasts of a modern facility with capacity to manufacture various instruments, components and prototypes for the fleet of the Armed Forces and for the Engineering Industry.
