The founders of the company were prominent NRI’s Dr. P A Ibrahim Haji &Mr TM Nair.
Mr T M Nair arrived in Dubai in 1959 and later he reached out to the well-known company Nissan in Japan and secured the agency representation of Datsun cars in UAE foreseeing the boom in oil industry. It was the first time that Japanese cars were introduced in the Middle East. Since then he popularly had known as ‘Datsun Nair’
As the association with Japanese authorities was progressing in the 80s, he became aware that the automobile giant Suzuki was in talks with Sanjay Gandhi for a collaboration of a new low-cost Indo-Japanese model. Mr Nair was very excited with the prospect and knew well how the success in the GCC model could easily repeat itself in India. Hence he mooted the idea of launching an automobile company in India. He founded Indus Motor Company in Calicut, Kerala, partnering with his long-time friend Haji PA Ibrahim.
Dr P A Ibrahim Haji started his entrepreneurial journey in the UAE in 1974 with his own garments business before branching out into cosmetics. In 1976, he expanded it to the trading business, starting Century Trading Company and later into jewellery business.
Dr. P . A. Ibrahim Haji again broadened his horizon of achievements further to education field in 1999 by setting up the PACE Education Group. He was also founder and vice-chairman of the Indus Motor Company.
In the year 1993 Mr P V Abdul Wahab (Rajya Sabha MP) was taken over as the Director and a shareholder. Management was later taken over by Mr P V Abdul Wahab in the year 1998.
