Mahindra: Brand overview

Founded:2 October 1945
Founder:J. C. Mahindra, K. C. Mahindra, M. G. Muhammad
Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
In 1945, Mumbai saw the establishment of Mahindra & Mohammed, a venture started by the Mahindra brothers, K.C. and J.C., and their partner Malik Ghulam Mohammed. Their early endeavors were focused on steel trading. Not long after, in 1947, they ventured into the automotive world, starting to assemble Willys Jeeps under a licensing agreement, marking their first steps into the automotive industry.

By 1948, there was a shift in the company’s structure when Ghulam Mohammed departed, leading to the firm’s rebranding as Mahindra & Mahindra. As the 1950s and 1960s decades rolled on, the company broadened its horizons, initiating the manufacture of light commercial vehicles and pioneering the production of tractors in India.

With the arrival of the 1970s and 1980s, Mahindra & Mahindra sought further diversification. They ventured into sectors like energy, financial services, aerospace, and more through new ventures and subsidiary collaborations. The 1990s proved pivotal for the company when they took over Punjab Tractors, India’s top tractor manufacturer, solidifying their dominance in the tractor industry.

The dawn of the 21st century witnessed the company’s rising prominence in the SUV domain in India, with iconic models such as the Scorpio, Bolero, and XUV500. Furthermore, they ventured into the realm of electric vehicles through strategic acquisitions. With a formidable global presence spanning over 100 countries and boasting a valuation of $19 billion, Mahindra & Mahindra stands as a titan in the Indian vehicle industry, particularly in segments like SUVs, tractors, and commercial vehicles.
