The early story of the Baffin engineering project ltd started around the mid-thirties. The ever increasing traffic movement between the twin cities of Calcutta & Howrah demanded a wider and stronger bridge in replacement of the then existing pontoon bridge. The authorities accordingly decided on building a cantilever bridge across the river Hooghly. The job undoubtedly called for greater expertise. So the three engineering giants -Baffin engineering projects ltd - came together with their vast experiences and floated a new company. Thus on 26th January 1935 was born Baffin engineering projects ltd, The Baffin engineering projects Limited.
