Strength for Peace

Peace is more than just the absence of war. It is the precondition

for a nation and its people to pursue unhindered their goals of
progress and prosperity.
Preserving peace across time and across geographies calls for
a combination of military strengths the ability to sense, the
agility to respond, the power to impact. Most of all, it calls for
an integral strength of purpose.
Larsen & Toubro understands the many and varied demands
of modern warfare. We are committed to developing and
continuously enhancing capabilities to meet these requirements.
Across the decades, we have worked closely with defence
forces, empowering them with a vital strength the strength
for peace.
