Right from our humble beginning through the hard work of over six decades, EVM has dared to dream big and dominate various business sectors while keeping with our premises to maintain a customer-focused, value-based business capable of rising up to new challenges. When the esteemed Mr E.V. Mathai established EVM Group as a modest venture dabbling in the market by selling spices, its current flamboyant standing in Indian entrepreneurial ladder must have seemed implausible. However his unwavering vision, tireless toil and altruistic leadership has unanimously led EVM to a Position of owning about eighteen companies, including partnerships and limited ownerships.

Although our leader and the founder of our group, the magnanimous Mr E.V. Mathai passed away on October 1999, his dreams are still revered and carried on by his six sons who head various business divisions of the Group with the same dignity and passion as he did.
