FACT Ltd, Travancore Cochin Chemicals Ltd, Indian Rare Earths Ltd, Hindustan Insecticides Ltd, located at Udyogamandal, Tata Oil Mills company Ltd at Tatapurm and Indian Aluminium Co.Ltd at Alupuram, Cochin was mainly a trade and business center.

HMT Ltd, Premier Tyres Ltd, Cochin Refineries Ltd, Cochin Shipyard Ltd and Carborandum Universal Ltd came into existence followed by many large scale and medium size establishments in the second half of 1960's. This heralded a new era in the industrial history of Cochin, which resulted in the outbreak of new professional style in Personnel Management.
