Way back in 1981, Dr. Jacob Crasta founded CME Equipment & Instruments (India) Pvt. Ltd to manufacture laboratory equipment for R&D and Quality control Laboratory. After Globalization & Liberalization of Indian Economy, the growing demand for Quality/Reliability and Testing of products manufactured across India, had a promising business opportunity.


This potential was realized by Dr. Jacob Crasta, a visionary who started his career in marketing of Scientific Equipment in the laboratory market segment in India. That was the beginning of the remarkable success story that CME is today. What essentially began as a laboratory product manufacturer has grown at a phenomenal pace over the years. Today, CME is one of the fastest growing Environmental Testing Chamber manufacturers in the Indian subcontinent. In fact, ME has earned itself an enviable reputation of being amongst the most reliable manufacturers of Environmental Test Chambers in the country providing testing solutions to various industries in the Government and Non-Government Sectors.


Since CME’s foray into the Environmental Chamber business decades ago, the marketplace has evolved rapidly. Competition has grown and so has the customer’s expectations. Yet, despite of the growing competition, team CME turned every challenge into an opportunity. And many innovations and value additions later, CME has established itself as a name second to none. But never the one to rest on its laurels, the CME family under the able leadership of Dr. J. Crasta has grown from strength to strength. Always innovating and adding value to its ever growing array of world class products and living up to the trust and satisfaction of its customers.



Today, the CME Group is a multi-location and a multi-faceted company with its presence all over the world. Renamed as CM Envirosystems Private Limited during 21th century, CME Group is today globally recognized as one of the leading manufacturers and exporters of new generation products of environmental testing systems based upon innovative technology with state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities at Bangalore and marketing network in place all over the world.
