The Sanmar Group embarked on a quest for excellence back in the early seventies. The Group had its beginnings in 1972 in a single business operation. It is now a multinational US $ 1 billion conglomerate headquartered in Chennai, India and has manufacturing facilities in India, the US, Mexico, and Egypt. Sanmar is engaged in three key business sectors - Chemicals (including Speciality Chemicals), Engineering (Products and Steel Castings) and Shipping. Strategic forward and backward integration, combined with prudent financial management, has been responsible for the Group�s steady progress and the leading position it occupies in different segments. The Group has set the benchmark for global partnerships, the oldest over 35 years, in a range of industry segments which have stood the test of time. In its journey of excellence, Stakeholder prosperity, Integrity and Professional excellence have been the pillars on which Sanmar rests. The Sanmar Group�s motto �Where Integrity Meets Excellence� says it all.
