In the year 1964, at the invitation of the late Archbishop Most Rev. Dr.Louis Mathias, Rev. Bro. Zephrin came to Madras to start Montfort Private Technical Institute at Alandur. The Building and the installation of Machines were completed by 1969. The power connection was made in 1970. Bro. Mathew Panathanath joined the community on 17th July 1970 and became the Director of the Institute after Bro. Zephrin. After installing the machines job orders were taken up from industries around Madras. The first batch of 22 trainees were recruited in February 1971 for turner trade. Bro. Joseph Kottoor joined the Brothers the same month and took charge of training. The students were given excellent training in theory and practical. On 8th September 1971, the Institute was blessed by Archbishop Arulappa.
