COMPANY

Since 1916

The Chowgule Group was established in 1916 – starting off as traders of various commodities between India and the Middle East. The real opportunity for growth and diversification came in 1951, with the establishment of western India’s first mechanized mining operations. This operation paved the way for vertical and horizontal diversification and business expansion in various engineering and social sectors.

Today, the Chowgule Group remains a family owned and professionally managed business. Operations include mining, pelletization, ship building, ship repairs, shipping, ship agency, warehousing, industrial explosives, salt, gases, material handling equipments, construction chemicals, automobile dealerships, trading and education.
