The history dates back to 1969 when Mr. P. K. Raijada, Director of the Company started the first showroom of Power Trading Co. at 32, Ezra Street, Calcutta - 700 001. It was for the first time that the most sough after and then scarce electrical measuring instruments known as AEP meters, dimmerstats and other testing instruments/equipment manufactured by AUTOMATIC ELECTRIC were made easily available to the customer. As times passed AEP became AE on being converted to a public limited company. There was no looking back and Power Trading Co. became the biggest and trustworthy selling agent of AE products.

By mid eighties the business expanded far and wide and in 1984 SIEMENS on the look out for a reputed outlet in electrical market appointed Power Trading as authorised dealer. The year 1987 saw the creation of Akshay Enterprises with Mr. Vinay Jain as proprietor to cater to exclusively the requirements of AE users. New names were added to our list of reputed OEMs, Panel Builders, Institutional Buyers, and Utility Agencies as satisfied customers.
