One of the first steps Srikrishna Jhaver took in setting up his industrial empire was his taking over Oakley Bowden Coy. - a British company, trading in medicines, in the year 1894. This company imported medicines from UK to be distributed in South India. Jhaver's vision and entrepreneurship saw the company prosper and become one of South India's leading business houses

Indigenous manufacture of medicines was important if the Company had to march into the future. Jhaver knew this and laid the foundation for a manufacturing facility in Chennai and named the company Tablets (India) Ltd., keeping in tune with the national spirit.

The pioneering spirit of Jhaver and the tradition of over a hundred years in various businesses continues to inspire our group in all its activities.
