Our Group

The year was 1938. It was a time when the reverberations of the Industrial Revolution had not yet reached the interiors of South India. Despite scarce capital and resources, Mr. P A C Ramaswamy Raja setup the first spinning mill at Rajapalayam, which later became the focal point of the Ramco Group. His sharp focus on technology and quality has inspired a generation of entrepreneurs and formed the basis for the collective vision of the Group.

Under the stewardship of our late Chairman, Mr. P R Ramasubrahmaneya Rajha, the Ramco Group has expanded into a USD 1 Billion industrial conglomerate with interests spanning cotton and synthetic yarn, cement, building products, software solutions, wind-energy, bio-technology and more. Today, with steadfast focus on R&D and innovation, Mr. P R Venketrama Raja has been steering the Group to become one of the most reputed business houses and achieve global recognition for its quality products and services.
