Our Story

The genesis of MEPL (Mutual Engineering Pvt. Ltd.) rests in principles of determination to succeed, perseverance to excel, honesty & hard work.

The seeds were sown over a century ago (1916) when a young man “Manekchand Gandhi’’ with a vision and hunger to succeed landed in then Bombay from a small town called Una, Gujarat. Thus ‘Gandhi sons’ was created which grew into a formidable trading house over the next five decades, with exports of spices to over forty countries around the world.

Based on this success the next generation led by Mr. J.M Gandhi with the desire to expand into engineering and manufacturing ventured into plastics through an acquisition which became Mutual industries in 1979.  

A strategic decision to invest into plastic injection tool shop in 1985 further strengthened Mutual industries led Mr. J. M Gandhi and Mr. D.K. Gandhi, a wonderful Uncle and nephew duo. Thus, Mutual established itself as one of the pre-eminent companies which delivered a complete solution in plastics from design and mould developments to mass production of components and modules.

As the capabilities grew with technological investments and with an inspired team of professionals in the field, Mutual advanced into providing engineered plastics’ solutions to the rising automotive industry in India.

In 1995, we became the first Indian tool shop to develop large injection moulds for bumper systems of a passenger SUV. We haven’t looked back since.

With the joining in of the third generation of Gandhi’s in the early nineties, we grew and expanded into multi locations facilities over time. But we also felt the need to specialize further as our magnitude was weighing down our true potential.

Therefore, in 2018, we created Mutual Engineering Pvt. Ltd. (MEPL) as an independently owned and managed company.

Sharp and focused; with the backing of a huge legacy, we became ready to fly.  Led by Mr. Drumil Gandhi and a team of young enthusiastic minds, we are geared up to be amongst the top three tooling and products solutions company in India, delivering to both the domestic and the global market.

Together with a Design-engineering centre, with a fully equipped tool shop, and Project Management capability, we offer total tooling and developmental solutions to OEMs and Tier Ones. 

We have the industry perspectives having been part of automotive plastics industry serving Global and Indian muli-national. We understand that the slightest error could have the biggest consequences. That’s why we’ve kept our promise a simple but paramount one.

We promise to give you ‘Right First Time’ standard based tooling solutions right here in India.
