The Torrent Group, founded by Late Mr. U. N. Mehta in 1959 and currently lead by Mr. Sudhir Mehta and Mr. Samir Mehta, is a driving force dedicated to transforming life.
It was four decades ago that Mr. U. N. Mehta embarked on a journey called Torrent for a simple cause and a unique sense of purpose - ‘Happiness for All’. A medical representative with an exemplary vision, he ventured out on his own by making niche marketing as his core competency. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Torrent lives up to the literal meaning- ‘Rushing Stream’, especially in the way it conceives products and services, which transform life. Over the years, the Torrent Group has remained focused on Healthcare and Power - two crucial sectors without which modern life is unimaginable. The Torrent Group today is not just spreading care, hope and happiness across the world, it is also empowering the people and lighting up their lives.
The Group’s governance philosophy has always emphasized people and society over everything else, more particularly in times of distress and stands committed to doing all that it can during the time of national crisis. Recently, Torrent Group announced its support of Rs. 100 crores to strengthen the Government’s efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and its fallout on poorer sections of our society. This contribution was made to the PM-CARES Fund and for various initiatives such as providing essential medicines to various Govt. hospitals free of cost, contributions to State Government relief funds, contributions to NGOs doing grassroots work to address the issues arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, provision of PPEs to healthcare workers and our own direct efforts to contain the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the vulnerable sections of society. In addition to the above, Torrent Group ensured that its employees (including thousands of contract and construction workers working under our contractors) were paid full wages for the entire duration of the lockdown and the entire cost of the same was borne by the Group.
Be it finding a cure for fatal diseases or ambitious power generation projects; or setting new standards in transmission and distribution; breakthrough pharma discoveries or 24X7 customer care initiatives - Torrent has a strong infrastructure in place to ensure that we are always at the centre of the movement towards a better life.
