🌱 The Roots
Mahindra & Muhammad was incorporated in 1945 by Ghulam Muhammad and two Mahindra brothers, Kailash Chandra Mahindra and Jagdish Chandra Mahindra. In 1948, however, following the withdrawal of Muhammad, the company changed its name from Mahindra & Muhammad to Mahindra & Mahindra.
Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. is one of India’s most well-rounded automakers, offering 2-wheelers, 3-wheelers, PVs, CVs, tractors and earthmovers. Through its subsidiaries and group companies, it is also present in financial services, auto components, hospitality, infrastructure, retail, logistics, steel trading and processing, IT businesses, agribusiness, aerospace, consulting services, defence, energy and industrial equipment. The group manages 150+ entities on a consolidated basis and is present in over 100 countries and 22 industries.
🦂 The Scorpio Effect
Mahindra‘s Scorpio is undoubtedly the company’s most well-known product, as it provided the company with the impetus to become what it is today. Other than that, M&M‘s business partnership with Kotak, which required an investment of a mere ₹1 lakh, is regarded as Anand Mahindra’s best investment.
