Brief history

  • Larsen & Toubro Limited is the biggest legacy of two Danish Engineers, who built a world-class organization that is professionally managed and a leader in India 's engineering and construction industry. It was the business of cement that brought the young Mr.Henning Holck-Larsen and Mr.S.K. Toubro into India . They arrived on Indian shores as representatives of the Danish engineering firm F L Smidth & Co in connection with the merger of cement companies that later grouped into the Associated Cement Companies.

  • Together, Mr. Holck-Larsen and Mr. Toubro , founded the partnership firm of L&T in 1938, which was converted into a limited company on February 7, 1946 . Today, this has metamorphosed into one of India 's biggest success stories. The company has grown from humble origins to a large conglomerate spanning engineering and construction.
