Business history of the family

Shree Group, India is based primarily in Valsad, Gujarat, with factories located in Vapi, Ankleshwar and Valsad. The group is currently involved in varied business activities in areas from manufacturing to construction.

The history of the group dates back to 1965, when our grandfather Shri HirachandjiDurlabhji Shah (fondly called Kakaji or Hirubhai) started a chemical trading business and incorporated the DurlabhjiBhagwanji Firm. He started his business in Valsad, near Vapi, a dye and chemical industries hub. He took agencies from Atul Ltd., Baroda Rayon and Grasim Industries.

Hirubhai was a visionary man. His hard work and determination helped him establish the company as a pioneer in the chemical trading business.

During this period, his only son Mr. Prakash Shah joined the business. With a new drive accompanying the entrance of a new generation, they incorporated Shree Sulphurics Pvt. Ltd. In 1982, they started manufacturing Sulphuric Acid, SO3 and other such derivatives at the Ankleshwar Plant (the first of the three factories that are now part of the group). With the success of the first factory, we entered the manufacturing industry. Under the strong guidance of Prakashji's, the company expanded to become a well known name amongst the sulphuric acid dealers.

Carrying the family legacy forward, Prakashji’s eldest son, Mr. Niraj Shah, joined the family business at the young age of 17. He got his training under the meticulous and firm guidance of his grandfather and soon became a well known name in western India’s chemical business. He first started trading in sulphur and then, set up a manufacturing unit of sulphur powder in Vapi.

Mr. Abhishek Shah, Prakashji’s younger son, too joined the family business after his graduation.

With three generations part of the legacy, the family business began diversifying in 2010, with construction, ready-made garments, herbal extracts and herbal cosmetic manufacturing as a few of the factions.
