A brief history of The Capital Maharaja Organisation Limited
The Group had its origins in the years leading up to World War II. The year was 1938 and the storm clouds of war were gathering. Two friends, Subramaniam Mahadevan and Sinnathamby Rajandram, employees of Dodge & Seymour, an American trading house, committed their life savings to acquire the shares of the Company when the owners left the Island.
It was a difficult time but, with the end of the war dawned a new era. One that was characterised by the spirit of pioneering that drives The Capital Maharaja Organisation Limited even today. The post war years saw the two partners, Mr S Mahadevan and Mr Sinnathamby Rajandram, consolidate the business, embark on new activities and add new lines of product.
