Managing Director’s Message
We trace our origins back to 149 years ago, when, as Littlewood Pallonji & Co, we built a giant water reservoir on Malabar hills to serve the needs of the residents of Bombay (now Mumbai), a city on the west coast of India. Over time, we have grown to become the ‘Shapoorji Pallonji Group of Companies’, with annual revenues in excess of US$ 2 billion.
Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Ltd (SPCL), our contracting division has contributed in building numerous iconic buildings and structures that dot the architectural landscape of India. In 1970, we became the first Indian construction company to venture into the Middle East, when we were chosen to build the 'Royal Palace for the Sultan of Oman'. Today, we operate in over 9 countries across the Middle-East and Africa.
SPCL has grown nearly fourfold in the last five years and has developed new capabilities including ‘Design & Build’ and ‘EPC contracting’. We take pride in counting the crème de la crème of manufacturing, services and other industries as our esteemed clients. We always operate with the highest levels of integrity and responsibility so as to build on the trust that we have earned over the years.
As you scan through our website, you will find several examples of industry leading projects within our portfolio, including the tallest residential building in India, the largest mall in India, the largest cement clinker plant in Asia etc. These stand as proud testimonies of the abilities of our 5,500 strong staff and the faith reposed in us by our clients.
Our employees are our biggest asset. Leveraging their collective talent allows us to undertake complex projects even in the harshest of operating environments. As a company that operates across the length and breadth of India and overseas, we believe our responsibilities go beyond our clients, to the larger community that we operate in. Our team members are continuously engaged in charitable and outreach programs across India, in the fields of education, primary healthcare and technical training programs, through the support of the Shapoorji Pallonji Foundation.
While we take pride in our legacy, we acknowledge that the journey ahead is challenging. Our business environment has seen drastic changes in the light of rising commodity prices, labor shortages, stiff competition and a strict regulatory environment. However, I am confident that through the devotion and hard work of our staff, we will reinvent our operations with a drive towards industry leading ‘process excellence’ so as to deliver our projects on time and with the quality that our customers have come to expect from us.
We at Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Ltd, will continue to innovate and design solutions that add value to our esteemed clients, for in their success lies ours.
