Founder of URC Group

Shri U.R. Chinnusamy started out as a small contractor undertaking and supervising the construction of irrigation systems. An early entrant in the field of construction, he observed the challenges and pitfalls faced by a nation building a new future.

He established URC Constructions in the mid 50s and led from the front, quickly establishing the company’s and leadership’s reputation as fair, effective, and community-oriented. A philanthropist, he worked tirelessly toward community development and social empowerment. He was responsible for many noteworthy achievements in the Erode region, such as the KVIT Trust that today runs many schools and colleges.

Nearly 70 years later, the company is today a symbol of his ideals, his values and the integrity he brought to the business of construction. His legacy has been carried forward, and URC Construction continues to make a mark and strengthen development in India.
