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 30 odd projects valued over US$ 782.00 million in Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Yugoslavia, Maldives, Bhutan and Thailand
EPI has executed over 520 multi-disciplinary projects in India valuing over Rs. 78855.978 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 Quality Management and the Environment Management System ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 for all its areas of operation, OHSAS 18001:2007 for Corporate Office and is a "Mini Ratna" Company.
