Humble Beginnings

“My first job was as a site coordinator for a consultant for projects in pharma sector. My work routinely brought me in touch with contractors and I realized that there was a shortage of professional and quality dedicated companies in this area", says George.

“In 1996, I quit my job and along with my brother Benny, we started the company with a temporary crew of fewer than 100 people. We operated out of a single room with two office employees, a few clients, and consultants who relied on our knowledge and dedication. Our aim was simple – provide end to end professional services to our clients with focus on quality and safety as per international standards”.

Today, Supreme Allied Services is one of the largest turnkey contracting companies in the country, with an annual turnover of more than 100 crores and a team of 1500 employees.

Benny George, Joint MDEffect of the COVID-19 Pandemic

“The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the Indian pharmaceutical sector. The pharmaceutical sector made a considerable contribution to sanitization, quarantine facilities, and preventive healthcare in addition to continuously providing medicines. It addressed the pandemic's immediate problems by assessing the use of the available medications and investigating various creative solutions. The world looked to India for vaccines,and we delivered in record time and exceeded expectations.

The low cost of manufacturing as per international standards such as USFDA, MHRA, and more, and the availability of competent labor are the key strengths of the Indian pharmaceutical sector. The major goals of our clients are to complete projects quickly and on schedule without sacrificing quality or safety. At Supremes, we have the right staff and infrastructure in place to handle various projects across international borders smoothly. Our goal is to offer our clients a total solution, including assistance with Design, Turnkey Construction, and quality support after Commissioning. During the pandemic, we have undertaken many projects with major vaccine& other Pharma companies and delivered in record time. Our ability to work in critical environments, under time constraints without affecting quality and safety is the reason why we have one of the best customer retention rates in the industry”, declares George.

In the next few years, we expect a significant boom in the Industrial contracting business. We have already established ourselves in the pharmaceutical industry, and now we want to dominate the FMCG, Chemical & Petrochemical sectors as well.
