The TII Heritage

After political independence in 1947, the market prospered with prodigious opportunities waiting to be captured by the Indian sovereignty. Our torchbearer, Murugappa Chettiar soon realized this Economic Independence and contemplated utilizing those fruitful options. Nurturing a vision to manufacture a product for the common man that could be sold in large numbers, he established the TI Cycle of India (TICI) in collaboration with TI of the UK, in the year 1949. As a measure of backward integration, The Tube Products of India (TPI) was formed to make steel tubes for bicycle frames in 1955 and TI Diamond Chain (TIDC) in 1960, to make bicycle chains. And finally, the Tube Investments of India Ltd (TII) in 1959 was formed by merging TICI and TPI while TIDC India was merged later in 2004.

Burgeoning over six decades of its existence, Tube Investments of India Ltd has been a trailblazer in building remarkable works in the engineering and metal forming sectors. All thanks to the central R&D function which underpinned Tube Investments of India Ltd since its formation.
