  5. 5. INTRODUCTION ABOUT GODREJ INDUSTRIES The Godrej Group was founded in 1897, and has since evolved into one of the largest and the oldest conglomerates based in Mumbai, India, with a presence in varied industries, including appliances, precision equipment, machine tools, furniture, healthcare, interior solutions, office equipment, food-processing, security, materials handling and industrial storage solutions, construction and information technology. The Group is headed by Adi Godrej and his brother in law and cousin, Nadir Godrej and Jamshyd Godrej. Traditionally, Vikhroli, a suburb to the Northeast of Mumbai has been Godrej's manufacturing base, but increasingly the group has moved significant production facilities away from Mumbai. The Godrej group also owns vast land in Vikhroli, occupying 3500 acres (14 km2) of land on both sides of the Vikhroli section of the LBS marg. That makes the Godrej group the biggest private land owner in Mumbai by far[citation needed]. Such vast land can, in theory, be used to create at least 1,500 acres (6.1 km2) of residential floor space, which, at very modest rates (Rs.10000/sqft), can be sold for USD 16 billion. Thus, the Godrej group is sitting on an invisible cashpile that is an envy of other Indian conglomerates[citation needed].and were the biggest company and we call them go. 5
