The Arco Group was founded in 1960 by the late Shri Mahavir Prasad Ruia. Initial activities were started with trading in car and room air conditioners and their spare parts. The 70's saw expansion of manufacturing activities, especially in the areas of materials development. It is to Mr. Ruia's credit that without any foreign collaboration, he pioneered the development of Glass Bonded Mica in India. This even today is a highly guarded technology, available with only a handful of manufacturers in the world.
During the early 80's Mr. Rajendra Ruia joined the business. After graduating from Mumbai, he obtained an MBA degree from the US, thereby bringing into the business a wider perspective and a recognition of the need to enter export markets. The business of manufacturing Glass bonded Mica insulators which had commenced a few years earlier was expanded. Today we are the premier Indian company supply these insulators to the traction industry in India.
The Arco Group is headed by two working Directors - Mr. Rajendra Ruia and Mr. Narendra Ruia. The Group employs approximately 200 persons. There are six manufacturing units, located in and around Mumbai and a unit each in Goa and Chennai.
