Mr. Arvind Mafatlal (1923 – 2011) was a legendary industrialist and social reformer of our times who has played a prominent role in the post-independence growth story of our country. Even though Mafatlal Industries was founded by his grandfather in 1905 in Ahmedabad as a textile mill, it went through a massive uplift and expansion after Mr. Arvind Mafatlal took over in 1954. His vision and leadership played a part in putting India on the global economic growth spectrum.
His spiritual core shaped his principles and beliefs, and his conviction that in altruistic action and compassion lay salvation. An idealist and a visionary, he was always conscious of how his actions would impact the lot of the poor and needy, and no force in the world could compel him to stray from his ethical path. He was to play many roles in the years to come – that of a loving husband, a warm, caring father and grandfather, an exemplary businessman and an iconic leader, and above all, a compassionate human being whose selfless nobility was touched by divinity.
“The Arvind Mafatlal Group was a seed that was sown decades ago, born from a passion and commitment to integrate a strong legacy with future-forward ideas. Over the years, this seed has grown, scaled heights, and expanded beyond boundaries imagined. This is all thanks to the biggest assets we have been blessed with–our stakeholders. They are our talented employees, invaluable partners, and most of all loyal customers, who make up the AMG Family, which is our greatest strength.
Amid a period of increasing global complexity, our businesses are rock solid and sustainably positioned to capture opportunities. We are entering an exciting phase for the group through diversification into various verticals and promising projects that have added a dynamic dimension to our business profile. A new age has dawned on the AMG Group and with it come thrilling opportunities, and the ability to attain even greater heights.
Above all, we remain steadfastly committed to upholding the highest professional standards and driving value for our stakeholders. The Arvind Mafatlal Group is grateful for the generations of trust and support we have been blessed with, and is dedicated to forge forward in its mission to give back to society and contribute to India’s growth.”
