140 years ago, Mumbai was largely an uninhabited cluster of islands. To fulfill the water supply needs of the city a reservoir was built, in the famous Malabar Hills. Not only did the reservoir sustain the needs of Mumbai for the next 100 years, it also witnessed the growth of Mumbai as the Commercial Capital of India.
The reservoir was built by a Littlewood Pallonji & Co., which today is Shapoorji Pallonji Co. & Ltd. one of the leading construction giants in India and abroad.
Over the next hundred years, the company’s expertise has been repeatedly showcased on projects which involved a major advance in construction technology or whose size was beyond the capacity of most others. Blessed with a rich legacy and heritage, it has marched into the new millennium with modern management skills, state-of-the-art technology and the ideals of innovation and customer satisfaction, to the extent that when the Sultan of Oman decided to build a palace around his throne, he placed his trust in Shapoorji Pallonji.
Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Ltd. is just one of the jewels in the SP crown. It draws vital support from other group companies to be able to execute turnkey projects swiftly and efficiently. These include SP Fabricators, AFCONS, Forbes, Sterling and Wilson, SP Construction Materials Group, SP Real Estate and Samalpatti Power Company Private Limited. Together, this conglomerate continues to strive towards perfection, quality and commitment virtues.
