It was the year 1916 when a few talented workers from Sialkot, who were our forefathers, joined hands to start production of surgical instruments. Production was initiated on the basis of samples that were brought by a businessman of Sialkot from United Kingdom, who also happened to be member of The Privy Council.
Market expanded at snail’s pace for almost three decades, first in The Punjab and later in other parts of India.
