Metro is not a history of rice culture in ancient Kerala.
It is a modern industrial revolution, spearheaded by one man who probably did more than anyone to advance the growing, procuring and milling of rice in Kerala. It is how a small business family from the backyard in Kalady transformed into Metro Group of Companies under the determination and vision of its founder, Mr. A.M. Makkar Pillai.
As a part of Business development, Metro under the able guidance of Mr. A.M. Makkar Pillai added on more Rice Mills and established itself as the leader in the industry.
Continuing in the footsteps of this legend, the second generation of the family has taken the business further and diversified to Supermarkets (both in India and the gulf), Paints, Quarries, Crushers, Concrete Brick Making and Manufactured Sand to its elaborate repertoire, while upholding the legacy of Metro Rice Mill. With a very strict adherence to quality management, every venture undertaken by the group is able to deliver the highest levels of satisfaction to all its consumers. Even today in this competitive world, Metro Group relies more on the quality of their produce rather than any other marketing gimmick to achieve unchallenged sales results.
The latest business venture of the group is Metro Builders and Developers. As with all its other ventures, Metro Group emphasizes on its commitment to provide unparalleled services in the construction and real estate development industry.
