The Kirloskar group of companies was one of the earliest industrial groups which made a mark in the engineering industry in India. The group produces pumps, engines, compressors, lathes and electrical equipments like motors, transformers and generators (it is the worlds largest genset manufacturer). While Laxmanrao Kirloskar established the group, his son S. L. Kirloskar played a major role in its rapid growth. He created an empire that enjoyed one of the highest growth rates in Indian history, a staggering 32,401% growth of assets from 1950-1991.[citation (source) needed]


In 1974, in cooperation with Deutz-Fahr of Germany, Kirloskar began manufacturing tractors.[1] They have since ceased tractor production.[when?]
