Sometimes Innovation Is Just About Observation
Founded in 1973, UNIDEL started as a manufacturing company in the electro-mechanical engineering space, eventually growing into a leading industrial automation group. Through its history, UNIDEL has operated several joint ventures in the industrial automation space in partnership with global MNCs – Parker Hannifin-SSD Drives USA, Invensys-Eurotherm UK, Ametek-Land USA, Honeywell-Matrikon Canada.

What’s In A Name?
The origins of the “UNIDEL” name goes back to the beginning of our Innovation Journey in 1973. Digital Electronics Ltd or DEL was our first company and over time became synonymous for our group’s values – Agility, Innovation, Dependability and Excellence. As we expanded through the 1990’s into a group of industrial automation companies, our values remained intact and we figured that the best way to represent ourselves to our growing customer base and team members was to rechristen ourselves as the “Unified DEL” or UNIDEL. Since then UNIDEL has continued to remain the group’s name and is today the holding company that owns our operating companies in the technology space.
UNIDEL companies across the Industrial IoT, FinTech and EdTech segments are designed to re-imagine solutions for current industry challenges.
Rasiklal Maneklal Capital is the UNIDEL’s Family Investment Office providing investment management, asset allocation and a comprehensive set of back-office and middle-office services.
Since 1973 UNIDEL has incubated and backed several companies that have become global market leaders. Two unsuccessful outcomes have provided invaluable lessons in early stage venture incubation.
