The founder of the firm, late Mr. P. Ganendra worked for a period as a civil engineer with the British Railways before coming out to Malaya in the early fifties to serve the Malayan Railways. Upon Malayanisation of the Public Services and Merdeka, he left Malayan Railways to set up one of Malaysia's first indigenous engineering consultancy firms, Mr P. Ganendra went into private practice in Kuala Lumpur in 1962 and thus P. Ganendra and Associates was born. The Office was based in No. 2, Jalan Changkat Ceylon, Kuala Lumpur.
