The company was called Western India Products Limited, with a modest presence in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.

It was in the early eighties that Wipro made its foray into the Infotech arena. An energetic, committed team of professional R & D and marketing managers came together in Bangalore in 1980. With this began the Wipro Infotech story. In a small lab at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), the team developed the first Indian 8086 chip.


Wipro has transcended from being a service provider to being a consultant, guide and trusted partner.
