In 1977, Lumbini Vidyut Udyog, presently known as Litmus Industries Limited, was founded with the goal of using Nepal's limitless hydropower resource potential.

When it came to recognizing the critical need for conductor-based transmission lines that had the potential to alter how energy is delivered in Nepal, Litmus Industries was well ahead of its time. Over the past 15 years, Litmus Industries has successfully exported its goods to India and has become a household brand in the Nepali cables and conductors business. With the mission and vision to achieve operational excellence by delivering innovative products with state-of-art technology for customer satisfaction, they have been delivering the best quality products in the Nepali market.
