Eicher Engineering Components (EEC) is the automotive components division of VECV (VE Commercial Vehicles Limited), a Volvo Group and Eicher Motors joint venture.

EEC came into existence in 1992 in a take-over from Ramon &Demm, Thane.

Ramon & Demm plant was originally set up in 1964 in technical collaboration with "Fratelli Daldin & Matteucci" of Italy - the makers of the famed "DEMM" brand gears - and it was the first gear manufacturing facility in the auto-ancillary sector in India.

In the ensuing years, EEC has grown from strength to strength and is one of the leading gear manufacturers in India. The company has achieved excellence in manufacturing Power-train components (Differential Gears, Transmission Gears & Shafts and Engine Gears) and Gearbox Assemblies for a worldwide clientele in the OEM and in the Aftermarket space. The company has made space at many reputed OEMs which have global presence including India.

In recent years, the group has continually invested in innovation, technology and expansion. As a result, the units continue to expand their capacities and efficiency, while adhering to their core principal of quality and manufacturing excellence.
