HHV Group 60th Anniversary

Bengaluru-based HHV Group, an Indian Vacuum, Optics, and Thin-film technology company, has announced its 60th anniversary celebrations. Established in 1965 as Hind High Vacuum Co (HHV) by S. V. Narasaiah, working in vacuum technology, since then the company has been using vacuum-related technologies in India.

Initially founded at the IISc, HHV has completed its six decades in the industry, expanding into a global enterprise employing 800 individuals with sales and service centers worldwide. Reportedly, HHV has diversified into various fields, including solar module manufacturing, thin film coating services and equipment development, and optics fabrication. 

HHV has developed India’s first Indigenous vacuum coating unit and successfully installed a 3.7-meter Telescopic mirror coater at Mount Abu in January 2024, contributing to numerous strategic projects and research initiatives in the country.

The 60th-anniversary celebration is being held at HHV Peenya (Bengaluru) facility, featuring an exhibition where each company within the group showcases new products and developments achieved in the past year. During the event, HHV Group Managing Directors Nagarjun Sakhamuri and Prasanth Sakhamuri addressed the audience, outlining the challenges in high technology development and the group's future direction.

As part of its commitment to employee recognition and community support, HHV annually rewards top performers, recognizes long-serving employees, and offers scholarships through the Sakhamuri Family Foundation to over 50 deserving students to pursue their education.

In 2023, HHV underwent a demerger into HHV Thermal Technologies for furnaces and carbon composite businesses and HHV Advanced Technologies for thin films and optics businesses, both operating as 100% subsidiaries of the HHV group.

HHV Group has plans for investment and growth, aligned with the 'Make in India' initiative. HHV Advanced Technologies is in the process of establishing an optics fabrication and thin film coating facility at Dabaspet, Bengaluru, spanning 40,000 sq. ft. in clean rooms, equipped with optics fabrication capabilities including single-point diamond turning, CNC machining, and super polishing. 

This initiative aligns with the long-term vision of the HHV group to enter opto-mechanical assemblies, with ongoing discussions with leading lens manufacturers to develop and establish this capability in the country.

HHV Thermal Technologies continues to provide furnaces for metallurgical applications, receiving prestigious orders such as a super specialty brazing furnace from Korea this year. Additionally, the company is actively engaged in research on carbon-carbon composites and carbon-silicon composites for space applications.

On its 60th anniversary, the HHV Group has stated it is working towards the development of new technology and processes to support expansion plans and drive growth, in line with its long-term vision, mission, and goals.
