Jaihind Projects Ltd. started as Jaihind Welding Works, a small metals and welding workshop in Rajkot in the year 1963 by Late Mr. Lalchand Hinduja. His zeal, leadership and dedication towards work led his clients entrusting him to take on projects of larger size, leading him to build a team of technocrats and engineers to focus and take on oil & gas pipeline projects against competition from major engineering firms. In the coming decades, this entrepreneur from a remote city went on to execute some of the longest pipeline projects in the country.
In the year 1985, the company got its current name when it got converted from sole proprietorship to private limited company. Four years later, Mr. Prakash Hinduja, the current Chairman and Managing Director, succeeded Mr. Lalchand Hinduja. Under his leadership, the company went public on 24th March, 1995.
The quality of work executed over next decade called for national as well as global recognition. In the year 2007, JPL formed a consortium with a leading engineering firm in Middle East, with whom it was successful in bagging GAIL's project. In 2008, JPL went global by opening its office in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. It formed another consortium in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia in 2009, where it was successful in bagging its first projects in the two countries, signalling the commencement of its transformation into a global contractor.
