About the Company

HEG incorporated in 1972 is a public limited company incorporated. HEG, a premier company of the LNJ Bhilwara group, is India’s leading graphite electrode manufacturer. It has one of the largest integrated Graphite Electrode plants in the world, processing sophisticated UHP (Ultra High Power) Electrodes. The position the company enjoys in India and abroad is largely due to its commitment to constant upgradation of its product quality to match international standards and to meet new challenges to win and excel in all situations.

Business area of the company

HEG is a leading manufacturer and exporter of graphite electrodes in India and operates world's largest single-site integrated graphite electrodes plant.


Graphite Electrodes: The main business of HEG is graphite which accounts for 80% of the revenue. Set up in 1977, in technical and financial collaboration with Societe Des Electrodes Et Refractaires Savoie (SERS), a subsidiary of Pechiney of France, HEG is now the largest integrated graphite plant in the world. Spread over an area of about 170 acres, HEG (graphite division) has facilities for production of Graphite Electrodes and Graphite Specialities. Its plant is located at Mandideep near Bhopal (MP).

Power Division: One of the major bottlenecks plaguing the Indian industry has been the shortage of power. At HEG Limited, it realized this as early as 1995 and overcame this problem by setting up the group’s first hydropower project of 13.5 MW rated capacity in Tawanagar, district Hoshanabad (M.P.) which was commissioned in 1997. The power generated at this unit is wheeled to the graphite plant at Mandideep. This not only ramped up the efficiency of the graphite plant but also opened a window of opportunity in power generation.

Carbon Speciality: HEG also makes Fine Grain Carbon Blocks for various applications on special orders. These blocks are used by the customers to make value added products like Heat Exchangers, etc.
