Envisioning and visualizing the concept of turnkey execution of projects as an effective tool to create the needed infrastructure to hasten the pace of multi-disciplinary industrial construction, EPI was incorporated in 1970 as A Government of India Enterprise under the administrative control of Department of Heavy Industry. Since then, EPI has admirably performed its assigned roles as the country’s leading Prime Contracting Company and has left its imprint not only in India but in the overseas market as well where its past operation spread over a decade in the wake of oil boom in the Middle East. EPI successfully executed 33 odd projects valued over US$ 1050.204 million in Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Yugoslavia, Maldives, Bhutan, Thailand and Oman
EPI has executed over 620 multi-disciplinary projects in India valuing over Rs.121178.235 million. Through the execution of these projects, EPI has in its own way contributed immensely in the development of the Nation and there is hardly any state in India where EPI’s pronounced presence is not visible. EPI has the rare distinction of having worked for almost all Power Sectors and Steel Plants in India in Public Sector as well as in Private Sector. EPI’s contribution in project execution for various sectors is also quite substantial.
EPI is proud to be one of the first few companies to have been awarded integrated certification for its Quality Management System, Environment Management System and Occupational Health and Safety Management System i.e. ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 for all its areas of operations. EPI is one of the first few companies to have been awarded ISO/IEC 27001:2013 for Information Security Management System and is a "Mini Ratna" Company.
