The Bombay Burmah Trading Corporation Limited (often simply called the "Bombay Burmah Trading Company") was created in 1863 by the Wallace Brothers. It is IndiaÂ´s oldest publicly quoted company. In the mid 1850s the Wallaces set up a business in Rangoon, shipping tea to Bombay. In 1863 the business was floated as â€śThe Bombay Burmah Trading Corporationâ€ť (BBTC). Its equity was held by Indian merchants, as well as the Wallace Brothers who had the controlling interests. By the 1870s it was a leading producer of teak in Burma and Siam, as well as having other interests in cotton, oil exploration and shipping.
