The group had its origin in the year 1940 as an entrepreneurial venture started by Late Mr. K.P Paul. From a family-run entity, we have grown into a professionally managed, multi-dimensional business house with a combined turnover of Rs.2200 crores, a 6800 strong workforce combined with a network of over 200 units in different parts of the country. It is the sheer vision and dedication of our founder Chairman, the legendary (late) Mr. K. P. Paul that catapulted us into the big league.
Mr. KP Paul ventured into the Automobile Spare parts retailing business and the last 70 years has witnessed the steady growth and development of the group through new ventures and diversifications. We are amongst the largest chain of automobile dealerships in India, apart from having business ventures in automobile spare parts retailing and distribution, engine rebuilding, vocational technical education, industrial tools, machinery and consumables. Our flagship company, viz., Popular Vehicles & Services Ltd, was the first dealer appointed by Maruti Suzuki India Ltd in Kerala in 1984. The expertise thus gained and the benchmarks set by us in the industry paved the way for many more such tie-ups with the market leaders Viz. Dealership for DCM – Toyota LCVs, Bajaj Two-wheelers, Toyota and Honda Cars. Recently we have been awarded the dealership for Jaguar & Land Rover for the state of Karnataka, Skoda cars for northern Kerala and Daimler Benz trucks covering 10 important districts surrounding Salem & Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu.
Our innovations over the years have ensured the synonymy of “Popular” with “Maruti” in Kerala, Popular is the largest in terms of network & volumes for Maruti in India. It operates 8 dealerships, 39 service centers and 10 used car outlets across Kerala and Chennai. and 5 Maruti Driving Schools Maruti reckons that 65 % of the market share in Kerala would not have been possible but for the ground-work, consistency & the systems laid by us. We have won the “Overall Excellence Award” and the “Best HR Practices Award” from Maruti for several years in succession. TNS Singapore on behest of Maruti conducted an employee satisfaction survey and we were adjudged the Best amongst their dealers. The “Total Car Care Package” designed and launched by Popular 15 years’ ago was a revolutionary concept and served as the precursor for Maruti’s extended warranty. Our growth has been exponential and in the last financial year we will sold over 34,000 Cars & serviced a record volume of 400,000 cars.
The Honda dealership has shown such promise that the Southern team from Honda visited our Unit to gain a first-hand view of the best practices employed there.
