About Us

Mr. Dudley Thambinayagam founded the Jupiter Group in 1975. He began his career at the tender age of 21 under his Father Mr. A.J Thambinayagam, helping the family tender business A.J Thambinayagam & Co.

A.J Thambinayagam & Co. were regular participants in National Paper Corporation tenders. Over the years they built a reputed list of paper suppliers. They were also sole representatives for Morjon Canned Mackerel products from the 1950s through to the 1970s. Morjon is an internationally reputed brand that was established 80 years ago, possessing a world-class distribution network, originated by Connell Bros Co. and Wilbur Ellis Co. of San Francisco. Mr. A.J Thambinayagam passed away in 1975.

The government’s liberalized policy introduced in 1977 was a stepping-stone to the company's growth in the paper industry. Now, spanning four decades and three generations, with multiple offices and associate offices across the globe, the Jupiter Group is a leading supplier and distributor of paper, paperboard, fine paper, publication paper, packaging paper and board and waste paper products in South Asia.
