About the company
Based in Mumbai, Mazagon Docks Limited was first incorporated in 1934 as a private limited company. It was subsequently taken over by the government of India in 1960 and has been one of the country’s leading shipbuilders ever since. Since the company comes under the control of the Ministry of Defence, it is closely involved in the construction and repair work of a wide range of naval vessels.
In fact, the product portfolio of Mazagon Docks Ltd includes naval warships, naval submarines, and even merchant ships. As of 2020, the company has built a total of around 795 vessels. With respect to shipbuilding infrastructure, the facilities that Mazagon Docks Ltd possesses are nothing short of international standards. Such a strong position in this niche industry segment of shipbuilding gives the company great leverage.
To meet the government of India’s strategic divestment plan, the shares of Mazagon Docks Limited are now in the process of being offered to the public. With regard to this upcoming
IPO, the company has also filed a Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP) with SEBI.
