In 1957, Mohanlal Mutha took the company's first small steps in trading. Its growth has been tall ever since. It spent a few years manufacturing stainless steel utensils, succeeded by a pipe fitting factory in Jhalandar. Eight years on, it had come to understand that its way forward would be through imports and exports.
In 1978, it made its first import transaction, setting in motion the years of international trade that have followed. In 1985, the company exported its first shipment to France, battling the odds of a communication channel that was only as strong as the postal system. The following year, the business landed the shores of Maldives. It's presence in the island nation has been strong ever since. From there on, it's been a matter of building on its each successful mission to concrete its position as a leading Indian export house.
In 2004, the company made a vital investment towards its own shipping and logistics wing. Its export and import acumen now backed by a dedicated transport division have helped fill the pages of its history with stories of contented customers and commendable growth.
