The story of the Mafatlal Group is a stirring saga of a blend of traditional values and modern technology triumphing over circumstances.
Mr. Mafatlal Gagalbhai, the founder, was born in 1873 to a weaver of Ahmedabad. From a very young age he assisted his father peddle textile products. Driven by the curiosity to understand the textile operations, he took up a job as a mill-hand. His big break came at the age of 31 when along with Chandulal Mahadevia, a friend, and Arthur Shorrock, an Englishman, he took over the management of a small mill in Ahmedabad, and named it the Shorrock Mill. The first mill did extremely well, and Mr. Mafatlal developed an appetite for expansion. Six years later, in 1912, he bought a mill in the neighboring Nadiad, and christened it New Shorrock. Mr. Mafatlal, wanting to do something on his own, bought the Jaffer Ali Mills in 1916 and renamed it Surat Cotton Spinning & Weaving Mills. Three years later, he came to Mumbai to take over the China Mill, setup in 1887.
In the 1970's and 1980's, the group diversified into Information Technology, Chemicals, the Engineering Industry, Financial Service Industry, and Gas Distribution and later into Healthcare business. From 1995 onwards, the strategy has been to focus on the Core Competence viz. Textiles and Chemicals and divest from other businesses. Today, Chairman Mr. Hrishikesh Mafatlal provides the strategic vision for Arvind Mafatlal Group, as it strides ahead with ambitious plans for the future.
