About

The Thermo Group was founded with humble beginnings in 1979. As a strong family culture and value to give back to society,
the Founder Directors donated to several charitable causes each year

Sri Ram Charitable Trust

Sri Ram Charitable Trust is founded as a CSR wing of Thermo Group of Companies. Our endeavour has always been to go beyond the business activities through the CSR wing, especially into Rural India.

  • Obligated to give back to society, the management of Thermopads set up a Trust much before the term CSR was coined.
  • In 1987 Sri Ram Charitable Trust was founded and has been since then 100% funded by Thermo-group whose companies transfer yearly a % of its profits into the Trust.
