Details About the Key Companies:
Jessop & Company Ltd.
Acquired: August 2003
Vertical: Heavy Engineering and Infrastructure
Plants location: Kolkata and Durgapur
The first Engineering Company of the country, Jessop, bears a 224-year old heritage in the heavy engineering and infrastructure sector. Its credentials run from manufacturing India's first iron bridge in the 19th century to the first road roller, its first iron steamer, first cantilever Bridge (the Howrah Bridge) to first EMU Coach and many more. This was the first acquisition of the Ruia Group and the company came into the Group's fold through the Indian government's disinvestment programme.

Kolkata-based Jessop, as a public sector enterprise, was bleeding heavily and morale was low. Today, with the Ruia Group's famed management techniques, it is back in shape and the order book is heavy. Jessop today is a multi-layered engineering-cum-infrastructure company, a leader in its field in this country.

The various segments of manufacture at Jessop outstretches into infrastructure zones, be it in the EMU coaches or wagon manufacture, or in the production of road rollers, or in building bridge structural and gates for dams/hydraulic projects, cranes and more. Each of these has extended application in the infrastructure sector. With the current infrastructure boom of India – an absolute necessity for commerce and industry to grow – the latent possibilities in Jessop & Co's applications have grown manifold.
