As per a study conducted by NHS and Census, with 3.3 million schools nurturing approximately 240 million students, India is one of the largest markets for school uniforms. The category stands at a whopping 680 TPD comprising overall shirts, tops, shorts, pants, skirts and girl students’ suits with bottom wear constituting 65% of the total TPD, i.e. 442 TPD, as per a research report of Bain and Company. Given this background, Valji Uniforms has a legacy and reputation that it can certainly be proud of – a standing of 100 years in the textile market with extensive experience in the uniform category.
Valji Uniforms was set up by Balchand Kothari with the purpose of enabling the youth of the country to achieve their goals just the way he had been able to. As a child, he would look up to the uniformed men in the police and military and desired to serve the country like them. But coming from a trading background, he put his expertise where he could make the most of it – that of the uniform manufacturing business. The company ventured into the textile business in 1985 to address the growing need for quality uniforms for school-going children.
Valji Uniforms has been driven with the vision to be a globally respected enterprise and provide the world’s best-of-breed uniform fabric solutions for all needs, offering products and services par excellence and attaining a position of pride by continuously building its competence. The company currently makes 216 lakh metres of fabric per annum. It also tops a network of 700 distributors, semi-wholesale dealers and 15,000 retailers across the country. In fact, Valji Uniforms has managed to penetrate all the districts of India.
