TVS Group

The TVS Group was founded by Sri T V Sundram Iyengar, a pioneer of Indian Industry in the year 1911. He was a visionary, whose ideas were years ahead of his time, and a man of principles. Both these combined to make him a legend in his lifetime.

Three years before World War I, when the automobile was still seen as some kind of intimidating “horseless carriage”, Sri TVS had the vision to set up South India’s first ever rural bus service connecting two districts in Tamil Nadu – Pudukottai and Thanjavur.

And, over the years, this transport company became the largest of its kind in the country, legendary for its punctuality and service. In fact, the rules and regulations our Founder laid down for himself, later became the blueprint for the Motor Vehicles Act.

Sri T V Sundram Iyengar’s philosophy of business was based rigidly on four concepts – quality, service, reliability and a sense of ethics. It is this personal philosophy that has built the TVS Group (www.tvsiyengar.com) as they stand tall today as one of India’s most respected business groups.

With a combined turnover of more than USD 6.5 billion, the TVS Group employs a total workforce of around 50,000. Charting a steady growth in terms of expansion and diversification, it currently comprises of around 45 companies. These companies operate in diverse fields ranging from two-wheeler and automotive component manufacturing to automotive dealerships, finance and electronics. Uniting these multiple businesses is a common ethos of quality, customer service and social responsibility.
