About Us

In 1921, Pollachi was a tiny village, way too modest compared to the bustling town it is today. But it was here, P.Nachimuthu Gounder laid the foundation for Sakthi Group. It was in this year P.Nachimuthu Gounder broke away from his traditional business of hiring bullock carts and pioneered into passenger transport service. From then on, there was no looking back.

He envisaged the path and showed others its means. He founded the Anamallais Bus Transport (ABT), the parent organization of the Sakthi Group in 1931 with 21 buses. It eventually grew into a network covering almost all of South India.

After three decades Sakthi Sugars Limited was established in the year 1961, with commercial production of Sugar commencing in the year 1964 at its Sakthinagar Sugar plant.

Today it has in its fold three Sugar plants in Tamil Nadu located at Sakthinagar, Sivaganga and Modakurichi. With the aggregate capacity of 19,000 Tonnes of cane Crush per Day (TCD), Sakthi Sugars Limited is one of the largest producers of Sugar in the country.
