SGS Innovations looks back on its 38 years of successful company history, characterised by innovation and consistently advancing globalisation and core values that moulded the ethos of the organisation.
in 1979 in Gujarat, India, SGS Innovations has always been committed to the production of high quality embroidery threads.
It all started with Bholanath R. Ningoo, a small-time trader of embroidery materials, who started off his successful stint as a first-generation en trepreneur with a small store and witness its remarkable growth, under his able stewardship.
In 1981, the renowned brand Bandhu came into existence to cater the need of discerning customers looking for quality yarn products, then unavailable in the Indian market.
In 1984, his brother Chandrasen R. Ningoo, joined the family business and established Bandhu as a reputable brand in India and abroad. The company grew by leaps and bounds as SGS products made their way across Gujarat and other states, and eventually reached abroad.
In 1991, to meet the rising demand, a new production base was established in Baroda, under the leadership of Deepak B. Ningoo.
The decade of 1991-2002 saw the growth of hand embroidery industry in Baroda. With the consistent quality, fast colour and tenacity of SGS yarn, brand Bandhu was acknowledged industry-wide as the supplier of premium quality yarn.
The year of 2002 was the birth of year of computerized embroidery industry in India. This resulted in need for producing threads with specific tenacity and quality so as to optimize the output of each embroidery machine. Kamal Ningoo studied the operational obstacles and the need of his clients, and established an innovation-led R&D unit at the plant. This investment soon began to pay richdividends.
