The beginning of such a formidable company is to be found in the vision of an equally formidable man. Mr. J. C. Gammon was the driving force behind the introduction of prestressed concrete to India. He designed the reinforced concrete piles of the Gateway of India. The foundations of the arch reach deep into the bedrock. With time, he came to be known as the ‘Sculptor of Concrete’.

His foresight was fundamental to the company reaching its present stature. His pioneering spirit led to a number of innovations that were the first of their kind.

His enduring values continue to build the Gammon legacy.
