The Orion group is promoted by the Suklikar family. The company was founded in 1987 by Capt. P.B. Suklikar - a pioneer in the shipping & offshore industry. Capt. Suklikar, an alumnus of the prestigious T.S. Dufferin, had an illustrious career at sea on-board bulk carriers and tankers where he took command of his first ship at the early age of 28.
