RSB is a global engineering institution, founded In 1975 by two bubbling and enterprising young brothers, Mr RK Behera and Mr SK Behera, from Jamshedpur, hailing from a humble middle class background, with a passion and dedication to do something different, to traverse a path hitherto untraveled. They dreamt only realities. Their start-up venture had a very little finance of Rs 15,000/- borrowed from his father, but with lots of family support and human values imbibed by their parents.
Growing up in Jamshedpur in the midst of successful Tata industries and value system, the brothers were deeply influenced and inspired by the entrepreneurship of Tata and their ethical values to people, society and the environment. Their upbringing echoes in all that they have accomplished so far and all that they dreamt to create.
Journeying through rough terrain of volatile business swings, brothers withstood storms to accomplish what they dreamt. With initial seed capital of mere Rs 15,000 RSB today in a span of more than four decades, carved a niche in global arena. Presently, it has 13 manufacturing plants spread over 7 locations in India, namely Jamshedpur (Jharkhand), Pune (Maharashtra), Dharwad (Karnataka), Chennai (Tamil Nadu), Pantnagar (Uttarakhand), Cuttack (Orissa) and Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh); and one each in Homer (USA), and Silao (Mexico). Now not only the brothers’ stand vindicated and delighted, the society at large also stands benefitted.
Serving with humility was in their DNA for Behera brothers, inherited from their father. They believed right from inception that true happiness comes when the good fortune is shared with those who are not as fortunate as we are. Therefore, they made CSR an essential fabric of business life with humble endeavor to think not just from heads, but also from the heart. They believed business of business is not about making money, but creating social values and do public good – an obligation beyond the requirement of law to persue long term business goals that are good and bring about positive impact to the society. Brothers served under-privileged of society in Education, Health Care, Sports, Environment Green Initiatives and Woman Empowerment with all humility and discreet silence.
