Larsen & Toubro is India's largest construction and engineering company. It builds industrial plants and ships, and is also involved in the development of infrastructure such as roads and railroads. The company boasts an order backlog worth more than 1 trillion rupees.
The company was established in 1938 in Mumbai as a trader of dairy equipment by two Danish men, Henning Holck-Larsen and Soren Kristian Toubro. It began to engage in ship repair during World War II and gradually expanded its business to cover construction and engineering.
Larsen & Toubro grew rapidly in the 1960s and came to rank among India's top companies in the 1970s. Abroad, the company has been involved in industrial plant construction and airports in the Middle East.
The company has recently landed a railroad construction contract as part of the government-backed Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (project aimed at developing industrial zones spanning across six states in India which would spur economic development in the region and develop industries), which will link the two cities with new industrial zones and large-scale infrastructure.
As the company expanded, the founders sold off their shareholdings. Larsen & Toubro is one of few large Indian corporations whose management is not dominated by any family clan. While Life Insurance Corp. of India, a state-owned entity, is the largest shareholder, no one owns a controlling stake in the company. It faced a takeover bid from Indian conglomerate Reliance Group in the 1980s.
