L&T Infotech carries forward the vibrant, rich and strikingly distinct heritage of its parent company - Larsen & Toubro. The two Danish engineers, who set up this eponymous company in Mumbai (then Bombay) 75 years ago, imbued the organization with the core values of professionalism, transparency, a determined firmness of delivering on its commitments and an overriding belief in inclusive growth. These values are at the heart of everything that L&T does - from building massive infrastructure projects through manufacture of plant and equipment to fabricating oil & gas platforms and green field IT implementations.
Beginning with the import of machinery from Europe, L&T rapidly took on engineering and construction assignments of increasing sophistication. It was closely engaged with movements of national significance including the ‘Green Revolution’ that transformed India’s agriculture, the ‘White Revolution’ that provided milk to millions, India’s odyssey into space and its on-going infrastructure projects. In each endeavor, it provided the technological impetus that helped drive these national programs to success.
Another of L&T’s achievements has been to successfully expand the capability horizon for India’s manufacturing industry. To all those who believed that equipment of a certain scale and complexity could only be made in the US, Europe, Japan or Korea, L&T responded by proving that it can be done in India. To all those who felt that China would overrun Indian industry, L&T proved that the reverse could also be true by exporting coal gasifiers to China. L&T is today widely acknowledged as the flag bearer of India Inc. for high tech plant and equipment and construction.
For an organization that took its first fledgling steps from a tiny office in downtown Mumbai, it has been an eventful march across seven decades. L&T’s unique ethos, culture and spirit should ensure that the journey continues far into the future.
