We started out as a textile business. In the 1980s, under the leadership of Ajay Piramal and Dr. Swati Piramal, we began to use our knowledge to build capabilities in pharmaceuticals. As part of our growth plan we acquired businesses in Switzerland, Germany, France, and the UK.
Our diversification strategy took us into glass manufacturing. Piramal Glass is Asia’s only specialty glass packaging company. In the 1990s we branched out into real estate. Our early milestones included marquee projects such as India’s first modern retail mall and Mumbai’s premier business destination, Peninsula Corporate Park.
