'Ashok' was having name & fame in the Industrial world till 1981.
Even Ashok Iron & Steel Fabricators was also manufacturing tin containers to meet the increasing demand from Oil Millers.
A turning point arose in the year 1981, when mighty Barchha Brothers thought of diversification in an area unexplored, but primitive and traditional product i.e. Kerosene Wick Stove. it was a time of fuel conservation. Government was giving incentives to units which were saving precious Foreign Exchange. An unique design was developed with a novel device to conserve fuel & give more heat. The fuel efficiency was increased from 45% thermal efficiency of a traditional stove to 60%. Ours are glove named 'Ashok'. The designs & devices are registered & patented also. It was a challenging job to introduce new domestic product which has no brand image in domestic world. The price of traditional stove was Rs. 13/- to Rs. 25/- while our introductory price was Rs. 63/- per stove. We are also equipped with latest electroplating plant for chrome plating.
