Abstract

Starting from an initial investment of $2,000 in 1958 to start a trading house, followed by the setting up of his first tiny manufacturing facility in 1966, Dhirubhai Ambani - the founder and Chairman of Reliance Industries Ltd, and perhaps the most visible and celebrated Indian industrialist of his generation - has built up a synthetic fibre, textiles and petrochemicals giant that, with a market capitalisation of $2.7 billion in 1994, has emerged as the largest private sector company in India. The case describes the story of this phenomenal growth, through continuous vertical and horizontal diversification, and the management approach of Reliance that has supported this growth process.
