The Ramco 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 Ramasamy 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.

Today the Ramco Group has expanded into a US $1 Billion industrial conglomerate with interests spanning cotton and synthetic yarn, cement, building products, software solutions, wind-energy and more. The Group has become one of the most reputed business houses in India and has achieved international recognition for its quality products and services.
