Identifying The Right Opportunity

Our founder Dr Ravi K Mehrotra always had his heart set on looking at growth opportunities for the group in sectors which are diverse but are aligned to India’s long term economic growth.

In 1990, he identified the footwear manufacturing as one such sector. His logic was simple: investing in and developing the industry will not only create employment opportunities, but will also increase exports or create import substitute. In turn, it will help save the foreign exchange for the country.

The company has its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Ranipet and sales offices across Northern India and Bangladesh. It employs more than 400 people and has consistently paid dividends to the group since early 2000.

Walking The Path Of Growth

With these objectives in mind, investment was made in an existing footwear component manufacturing business based in Chennai, India. Post the investment by Foresight, GTFC Limited, has grown into India’s largest manufacturer of footwear components and material. The company has several technical collaborations with leading companies in Europe and Asia.
