|The Sharp group was started in a very
humble manner way back in 1967 by the founder Shri KK Ramaswamy in his native village Kallapatti which is about 8 kms from the
Manchester of south India - Coimbatore.
The company was started with an initial investment of Rs 25000 in a plant area of 2000 Square feet with a single lathe and two workmen.
The founder was the first generation engineer from the reputed PSG College of technology.
A major breakthrough came in the form of an order for spare parts from Vikram Sarabhai Space Research Centre Trivandram. Based on
quality and timely supply, a major order for 100 MT Hydraulic Press, came the company way, which was also effectively executed to
their entire satisfaction.
Our erstwhile Managing Director Shri K Jaganathan (Third brother of our founder) had played a vital part in executing this order
through dedicated hard work spending sleepless nights to deliver the machine of the right quality on time.
Ahura welding electrode Ltd was in the process of expansion and they wanted to indigenous certain machines for their welding plant.
They having come to know about the acumen of the company had favoured the company with orders for complete plant for manufacturing
welding electrode. The company was able to supply the machine at a cost of Rs 2.5 Lakhs as against the imported plant of Rs 10 lakhs,
which turned the tables on further for the group. From there on there was no looking back, the company grew at a scorching pace with
multi products at multi locations.
Since the Company had chartered a growth path, the other two brother Shri. K.K. Ramachandran and Shri. K.K. Rajan joined the
business based on their expertise in Finance and Marketing respectively.
The growth was accelerated and the following companies come into existence.
