Born and raised in Bangalore, India, Raoul Prem Menon has always been around the best electrical grade of Mica Scrap from his early days. A strong bond with his Grandfather Mr. AS Lakshmanan (Founder of LAKSOLA) has led to a consistent interest in the field of electrical insulation, from a very early age. Raoul Prem Menon moved to Los Angeles California to pursue his higher education, primarily in the realms of Economics and Electrical Engineering, completing his studies at Occidental College and CALTECH. Mr. Menon continued his life in Los Angeles by working with a very prestigious Advertising and PR Firm operating out of Beverly Hills, CA, in the glamorous world of Celebrity Marketing. However, Mr. Menon realised this was not as glamorous as the World of Mica Insulation, and returned to India to work alongside his grandfather Mr. AS Lakshmanan and his mother Mrs. Indra Prem Menon. Working very closely with the Mica Scrap and Mica Paper manufacturing Dept. at Laksola, has gained a thorough knowledge of Mica Insulation Tapes, making his goal to manufacture the most User-Friendly Mica Tapes, for smooth application on the Winding Shop Floor at various customers worldwide. While other major Mica Insulation Manufacturers worldwide manufacture Standard Mica Tapes with Standard Mica Specifications, Mr. Menon chose to avoid the Status-Quo, and come up with something more useful for Laksola’s customers. As Laksola manufactures ALL its Mica Paper In-House, this gives Laksola the flexibility to TAILOR-MAKE our Mica Tapes to best suit the Application Requirements of our Customers. Working very closely with various OEMs’ Winding Shop Floors of Mica Tape Users, Mr. Menon is TAILOR-MAKING a Bespoke series of Mica Tapes for the right application. High Voltage and E-Mobility is the Primary Target segments for Laksola’s future, and our High Quality Mica Paper supports this tremendously.
