Mahindra & Mahindra-Defense Division
Mahindra & Mahindra is the flagship company of the Mahindra Group. Established in 1945, our core automotive and farm equipment businesses have grown into market leaders whose triple bottom line ethic is driving industry trends towards technological innovation, social responsibility, and constantly improving customer satisfaction.
Over the years, we’ve spun off into new ventures in order to better meet the needs of our customers, expanding into automotive and non-automotive components, information technology, financial services, and energy. We operate in a federated structure so that each business can take risks and grow on its own and simultaneously leverage synergies across the entire Group’s competencies.
Our contribution to defense systems began in 1947 when we started assembling the Willys Jeeps used in WWII in India. Today, we provide total solutions for the entire range of light combat and armoured vehicles and their derivatives for defence and security forces. Our ability to incorporate state-of-the-art technology at reasonable cost has made us the largest private-sector supplier of bullet-proof vehicles in the country. Our up-armored vehicles serve the Indian Army, Air Force, and Paramilitary and State Police Forces, and many of our vehicles are exported to other nations through the Ministry of Home and External Affairs.
