The inception of Sterling and Wilson is deep-rooted in the legendary friendship between Shapoorji Mistry Sr. and Mehervan Daruvala which later evolved into a powerful business partnership.
By the 1920s, Mr. Daruvala’s company - Wilson Electric Works - served as an electrical contractor to the renowned Shapoorji Pallonji Construction, an enterprise owned by Mr. Mistry. Distinguished by their capabilities and efficiency, this duo has worked on some of India’s most significant commercial and residential projects as well as executed them impeccably.

Moving forward, in 1971, Wilson Electric Works merged with Sterling Investments, a group company of the Shapoorji Pallonji Group, to form an EPC powerhouse called Sterling and Wilson. The decision empowered us to ride on global opportunities and emerge as a leading market player in due course.
The new entity Sterling and Wilson Private Limited commenced its operations in the 1970s with a few large-scale projects in the Middle East, further venturing into the Asian subcontinent and various other countries. Within a short span it created a strong presence in regions such as the Middle East, Africa, Europe, the Americas, and Australia. Sterling and Wilson currently has operations in 34 countries.
