ANANT Tools, the company engaged in the manufacture of Carpenter's Metal Bodied Bench Planes of different models was founded in 1949, under the name and style as 'ANANT Industries' by Late Sh. S.P. Chopra, a mechanical Engineer by profession.
The work was started in a small rented building of 100 sq. yds. at New Railway Road, Jalandhar with the initial investment of INR.20,000/- only. At the very start , it was though a tiny unit, but it had the rare distinction of being the 'First Industrial Unit' to start the production of Carpenter's Iron Planes in the country, which at that time
were being imported from U.K. and U.S.A. Anant products are competing with the imported products in quality and price, which were introduced in the local market in 1952.
The factory was shifted from Railway Road to the Company's own premises of 1200 sq. yds. in Industrial Area in the year 1965. The work has now expanded considerably with the addition of three more units., ANANT Tools (Unit No. II) Pvt. Ltd., premises of 5000 sq. yds., at B-5, Focal Point, Jalandhar, Kamal Tools Pvt. Ltd., premises of 2500 sq. yds., at C-15, Focal Point, Jalandhar and another premises of 8000 sq. yds., atA-1, Focal Point, Jalandhar.
