Background of Arvind


Arvind Mills is India's largest and the world's third largest denim manufacturer.
Arvind millsLtd.(AML),the flagship company of the US$ 500 million Lalbhai Group, was incorporated in1931.It aimed at manufacturing high-end superfine fabrics with imported state-of- the-art machinery. With 52,560 ring spindles,2552 doubling spindles and 1122 looms, it was one of the few companies in the early period of India’s industrialization to have spinning and weaving facilities along with full-fledged facilities for dyeing, bleaching, finishing and mercerizing. In the mid 1980s the Indian textile industry was faced with a crisis on account of the power loom sector churning out vast quantities of inexpensive fabric which led to many large composite mills losing their markets. While the company was operating at its highest level of profitability during this period, it took a proactive measure to increase its focus on the international markets to counter the threat from the power loom sector.

Arvind Mills has been one of the leading textile producers in India. The company is present in both the fabrics and garments segments of the textiles industry value chain. In fabrics, the items of manufacture include denim, shirting, khakis, knitwear and voiles. Denim contributes more than 60percent to the company’s turnover. In the garments segment, it is present in both the domestic and international markets for formal and casual clothing. The company is one of the leading players in the domestic ready-to-wear garments segment. It has successfully launched and established multiple brands - own as well as international ones (under license from the respective companies).Its own brands are managed by its subsidiary ArvindBrands Limited and are marketed in India and some neighboring countries. Own brands include Flying Machine, Newport and Ruff & Tuff in jeans and Excalibur in shirts. Licensed brands include Arrow (formals and casuals),Lee (jeans),Wrangler (jeans) and Tommy Hilfiger (fashion).
