The Company started as Wilson Electrical Business Services in 1927. It was re-christened as Sterling & Wilson in 1973 with Shapoorji Group taking 51% stake in the Company. In 2005, the Company became an MEP solutions provider both in the domestic and international markets. Today, Sterling & Wilson is one of the few players in India offering 360° MEP solutions.
The Company enjoys a significant share of the domestic MEP market, and plans to enter new international territories like SAARC and West African regions. This division of the Company plays a pivotal role in the project execution of other service divisions and, therefore, lies at the heart of the organisation’s operations. The MEP division’s activities span the entire value chain: proposal engineering, design, project management and planning, procurement, quality assurance and on-time delivery of a superior quality project.
The Company has been a key participant in some of the biggest projects across sectors such as commercial complexes, it parks, hospitals, airports, hotels, malls, multiplexes and industrial installations.
In 2015, Sterling & Wilson ventured into the Industrial Engineering Procurement and Construction (IEPC) space to exploit the ever-growing market opportunities and leverage the Company's internal strength in MEP and EPC. Over the last few years, the Company has developed a significant level of capabilities in multi-disciplinary engineering, design, procurement and construction projects.
Today, the Company is a one-stop solutions provider in the IEPC segment offering customised solutions to its clients. The IEPC business division comprises four sub-divisions namely - Process Control & Instrumentation (PCI), Industrial Fire & Safety (IFS), Mechanical EPC (MEPC), and Flue-gas Desulphurisation (FGD).
