FOUNDER’S MESSAGE

When you believe in the power of ambition, possibilities soar. A legacy and passion passed on by our legendary leader Mr. PNC Menon, who etched a royal history by crafting the imposing interiors of Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and Al Bustan Palace in Muscat, Oman. A relentless pursuit for quality and true-blue business ethics helped him create a brand that is SOBHA – a name synonymous with excellence. By pioneering the concept of self-reliance, he scaled new heights of perfection.

With a constant drive to grow, he leaped forward to the international market in 2003 with SOBHA Realty, UAE. Recipient of some of the renowned global awards, Mr. Menon’s name stands tall with ‘Golden Peacock Lifetime Achievement Award for Business Leadership’ by the Institute of Directors in 2014 and the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ in 2013 at the NDTV Property Awards. He was also awarded the prestigious ‘Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Puraskar’ by the then Honourable President of India, Ms. Pratibha Patil, in 2009. He is a member of the Prime Minister’s Advisory Council of Overseas Indians.

CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE

Celebrating 25 Years of Passion

When ambitions are driven by passion, incredible becomes a reality. The year 2020 holds a special significance in the SOBHA journey, as it marks our 25th year of operations in India. In the last two decades, we have touched some remarkable milestones – establishing SOBHA as a brand with an unparalleled focus on world-class product quality, unwavering commitment to customers, sincere hard work and transparency. Our success is a reflection of the passion and perseverance that every Sobhaite brings to work, every day.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic when the Indian government is advising businesses to be self-reliant, SOBHA is well-positioned to emerge unscathed from the crisis. This will need adaptive leadership at all organisational levels with a renewed focus on operational efficiency.

The foundation of SOBHA’s self-reliant model was laid by our founder Mr. PNC Menon, whose relentless pursuit for quality led to the setting up of in-house architecture, structure and MEP (Mechanical, Engineering and Plumbing) teams. The backward integration model was extended further with factories for interiors, glazing & metal works, concrete products and mattresses. SOBHA has delivered 108.34 million square feet of residential and commercial developments since its inception 25 years ago. Today, the company has a presence in 27 cities across 14 states through its residential and contractual project portfolio. SOBHA is renowned for its world-class products. We conform to the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications for our quality, safety and environment management systems.

At SOBHA, we believe that our growth story cannot be complete without an impactful contribution to the society. Through our Sri Kurumba Educational and Charitable Trust, we have adopted three grama panchayats in Palakkad district of Kerala, namely, Vadakkenchery, Kizhakkenchery and Kannambra. Our focus has been on education, health and women empowerment. Today, there are 4,485 families consisting of 17,171 people who are the direct beneficiaries of SOBHA’s CSR activities.

As an organisation, we are perfectly positioned to chart the next phase in our growth story even amidst the current uncertainty, with an unwavering support from our entire team.

We are confident that we will be able to sail through the prevalent tough macro-economic conditions and embark on a path of accelerated growth in coming years.
