Rarefield, as a Private Limited Company was incorporated on the 1st May 2001 by Mr.R.Russel Raj who has been engaged in the industry of Ship Repairs for the past 21 years. It was through his ardent efforts that he started this activity through a Proprietary Concern named M/s Raj Engineering Works during the year 1988. The group has completed servicing of around 4500 ships from the beginning and has earned a reputation for itself for its commitment and workmanship. Our company has developed into one of the top companies engaged in this activity and has been a pioneer in the field of Ship Repairing & Ship Building. At Rarefield we have an ISO 9001:2008 certification by DNV and are certified by Director General of Shipping as “Ship Repair Unit” which enable us to import any spares from any part of the world without custom duty for repairs to ships, an authorization by The Protector General Of Emigrants, Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs, Government Of India, New Delhi to carry out Recruitment of Skilled Workforce from India numbering over 1000 +++ workers per day to all countries in the World except Iraq.

Rarefield Engineers Pte Ltd. at Singapore has an approval from Ministry of Manpower, Singapore to Operate an Employment Agency w.e.f 24.11.2008. RAREFIELD has thus become a player at land for the pliers at the sea. From constructions of ships at bays around the world to their repairs, it has become a trustworthy name.

A quarter century back 1984-85, a young man from Kanyakumari District landed up at Madras with a vision to come up in shipping line where he first started working with ship repair firm in Mechanical and Welding works. With this humble beginning he slowly raised to team leader in the contract group and then became a contractor himself for Steel, Pipe and Mechanical works on board ships visiting Madras . He finally started Raj Engineering Works in the year 1988. He was a major contractor having more than 300 workers at Chokhani International Floating Dry Dock, Binny Engineering works and Goodwill also at Madras Harbour for about 13 years. He eventually spread his wings with 800 workers at Western India Floating Drydock at Goa and offshore work also. His thirst for becoming a ship repair magnet along with ship building activities increased leaps and bounds.


During the year 2001, for further establishment of the company it was amalgamated with Rarefield Engineers Pvt Ltd. This young lad was R.Russel Raj today's Managing Director of Rarefield Engineers Pvt Ltd. Creating special teams including expertise and qualified personnel was a Herculean job for Ship Repair and Ship Building . He has been one of the pioneers in the Ship Repairing & Ship Building business in India , South East Asian Country and Gulf countries and has earned a reputation for timely delivery and quality of the output.

He possesses high level of business acumenship and leadership qualities which is evident from the fact that he is handling 3500 highly qualified Officials, Engineers, Supervisors & Skilled Workers, who are working for the company.

Very soon a ship repair organization is going to be opened up at Oman Shipyard. All these activities have brought laurels to the shipping industry.
