Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers came into existence in 1884 as a small factory on the eastern bank of the river Hooghly. It was renamed Garden Reach Workshop in 1916, and was incorporated as a company under the Indian Companies Act of 1913 with effect from 26th February 1934 (Registration No. 7891 of 1933-34). The company was taken over by the Government of India (GoI) on April 1, 1960.
The company was put on a dynamic path of growth and diversification and to reflect its multifarious activities in a true sense. The company's name was changed to Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers (GRSE) with effect from December 31, 1976. GRSE has gradually expanded and modernized to meet growing maritime needs -- particularly those of the Indian Navy and Coast Guard. GRSE is among the leading shipyards in the country and the premier yard in the east. It builds a wide range of ships from modern warships to sophisticated commercial vessels, from small harbour craft to fast and powerful patrol vessels. It is among the few shipyards in the world with its own engineering and engine manufacturing divisions. Growing on its solid base of experience of over 100 years of excellence, GRSE looks confidently ahead to the challenges of the new millennium.
The company is a Public Sector Undertaking under the Ministry of Defence, GoI. GRSE has six units in and around Calcutta and one unit at Ranchi, Jharkhand. Four units including Ranchi have already acquired ISO 9000.
