Our mission is to establish and maintain quality systems and procedures in all our operations and businesses by focusing on the following:
“Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.”
These words by philosopher Saint Augustine aptly describe the journey of the Kapil Group of Companies, which owes its birth to the Late Smt and Shri Moolchand Maheshwari. The two versatile founders, with their outstanding vision and direction, nurtured this brainchild of theirs, making it the market giant it is today.
Born in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, Late Shri Moolchand Maheshwari completed his education at Agra University and was always widely respected for his humility and affable nature. In 1954, he met his partner - in life and business - the Late Smt Devika Krishna Maheshwari, who hailed from a royal family in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. Bringing with her a bag of her own accomplishments, this dynamic lady graduated from President College, Chennai in 1948 and even created history of sorts by becoming the first woman from the close-knit Marwari community to complete her graduation in English!
Shri Moolchand Maheshwari moved to Chennai after his marriage and in 1962, started his own venture - Kapil Agencies. His competitive pricing strategies and efficient delivery system helped the company grow at an accelerated rate, while his simplicity and hard work won him friends aplenty in the industry. As a result, by the early 70s, the company had already firmly established itself as a full-fledged steel supplier in South India. In addition, the founder believed in doing his best not only for his company, but also for the steel industry. It was this attribute that led to him being appointed the President of the Tamilnadu Ispat Parishad Ltd. He was also a member of the Hindustan Chamber of Commerce and All India Iron and Steel Federation.
Further, Late Smt and Shri Moolchand Maheshwari believed in doing their best for society and won various accolades for the same. While Shri Maheshwari served as the President of the Madras Maheshwari Sabha, Smt Maheshwari served as the President of the Lioness Club and Sakhi Mandal - both well-known women’s organisations in Chennai. She held the post of Vice President of the Maheshwari Mahila Mandal as well. The couple also channeled their energies into promoting the cause of education and were Chief Trustees of the Smt Krishna Moolchand Maheshwari Educational Trust. This family trust, along with the Vivekananda Educational Trust, promotes the Smt. Krishna Moolchand Maheshwari Vivekananda Vidyalaya at Thiruninravur, near Chennai, where around 1,000 children currently study.
With such noble and illustrious footsteps to follow in, we at the Kapil Group of Companies, are constantly working towards taking both the company and the society to the zenith of prosperity.
With profound happiness, I would like to inform you all that we are taking efforts to expand our horizons and explore possibilities in the growing steel industry, both in domestic and global markets. Our performance and growth so far are pointers to our commitment to emerge as THE preferred steel trading and processing company in India. With an eye on the future, we are taking all initiatives to ensure that we offer right solutions at the right time and quality service to the customers.
Steel Industry in India has been growing at a steady pace post independence. From 1950s, a number of steel plants have been established with technological support from reputed international steel mills in both public and private sectors. A few more mills are likely to be commissioned in the near future.
India today produces quality steel of all grades and sizes on par with the best in the world.
As the country is in a rapid ‘infrastructure development mode’, the demand for steel is on steep rise. Consumption is growing in other segments as well, such as Housing, Heavy Industries, Railways, Ship Building, Power, Engineering, Oil & Gas, etc. The steel service sector plays a vital role in ensuring that steel products of a wide range starting from Cold and Hot Rolled coils to Chequered coils are processed to exact dimensional specifications of the multiple end-user’s application.
With steel trading and steel services industry poised for major growth, we at Kapil Group, are confident of our capabilities to meet the end-customer needs and surge ahead with increased momentum.
I take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to our success.Thank you.
