One cannot but remember these words of Sidney Smith on learning about the Founder of this institution Sri. A.M.S. Ganesan. This great man whose life was yet another glorious example of the rags-to-riches phenomenon lived a noble life giving life and succour to thousands of people in his score-and-odd industries and institutions. Of all the establishments he raised in his lifetime he held this institution dear to his heart. Under his loving care the institution grew up in rapid strides since the founding moments in 1981 and never faltered in its progress.
When the Founder departed in 1992 his eldest son Sri. A.M.S.G. Vijayakumar inherited a legacy of his example, an example of commitment, dedication and perseverance. Ably assisted by his three younger brothers Sri. Vijayakumar led the Management of this Polytechnic and took the institution to further heights of excellence. But by the inscrutable decree of God the young chairman was snatched away to heavenly life in 1996. The new Chairman Smt. Rajeshwari Vijayakumar headed the Management admirably, but in 2001, as God willed it, she joined her life partner in the heaven. The Management, however, quickly recovered under the new Chairmanship of Sri. A.M.S.G. Ashokan. The new Management has ensured the sustenance of the fast pace of growth of the institution till date.
