HISTORY OF VIDEOCON:
Venugopal N Dhoot
Shri Nandlal Madhavlal Dhoot, the Founder of the VIDEOCON Group, completed his education in Ahmednagar and Pune. He was a successful sugarcane and cotton cultivator. As a next logical step to vertical integration, he boldly took upon an entrepreneurial venture by importing machinery from Europe to set up the Hanaper Sakhar Karkhana (Sugar Mill) in 1955. Those were the times when the village did not even have electricity. Thus was unleashed an Industrial Revolution. The die was cast.
