M/s Dutta and Dasgupta is a partnership firm incorporated in 1985. The promoters of the firm are qualified engineers and are first generation entrepreneurs. The firm initially started with manufacturing and marketing of agricultural implements having future plans of setting up large integrated firm for agricultural production and agri processing. Due to circumstantial conditions prevailing at that time the company diverted to pure engineering field and started producing tool room products mainly press tool, jigs & fixtures and special purpose machinery. The firm has earned a good reputation in technical excellence and quality of the product. The company is regularly exporting products in several countries like UK, USA, Canada and UAE.
