CG Power and Industrial Solutions Limited, previously known as Crompton Greaves Limited, is an Indian multinational company engaged in design, manufacturing, and marketing of products related to power generation, transmission, and distribution. It is based in Mumbai and a part of the Murugappa Group.[2] The company was restructured in 2016 following the demerger of its consumer goods business.[3]

History[edit]

Col. R. E. B. Crompton founded R.E.B. Crompton & Company in 1878. The company was merged with F.A. Parkinson in 1927 to form Crompton Parkinson Ltd. Greaves Cotton and Company, established by James Greaves in 1859, was appointed as their concessionaire in India.[4]

The company was incorporated in 28 April 1937 as Crompton Parkinson Works Private Ltd. In 1947, it was acquired by Karam Chand Thapar of Thapar Group. The company went public in 1960 and changed its name to Crompton Greaves Limited in 1966.[5][6]

In July 2014, Crompton Greaves Limited announced plans to demerge the company in order to separate its consumer goods business from the power and industrial systems segment.[7][8] The demerger was completed in 2016 with the listing of Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals (CGCEL) and Gautam Thapar selling his 34% stake in CGCEL to Advent International and Temasek Holdings for 2000 crore.[9][10]

In January 2017, Crompton Greaves changed its name from Crompton Greaves Limited to CG Power and Industrial Solutions Limited.[11]

In August 2019, CG Power and Industrial Solutions reported that its employees had carried out unauthorized transactions resulting in an understatement of the companys liabilities by thousands of crores in the previous financial year.[12][13]

In September 2020, Murugappa Groups Tube Investments acquired a 56% stake in CG Power and Industrial Solutions for 700 crore.[14]
