The year 2000 was a defining year for Mr. Rajan Lall. As the head of A&E Products- India & CMD of ITL Industries Limited, he was offered an opportunity to cover the Middle East region as a licensee of A&E Products (then a part TYCO Group a Fortune-500 company). Garment Trims and Accessories (GTA) was thus established as a branch of the ITL Industries Limited, one of the industry icons in its segment in India with Mr. Rajan Lall at its helm as Chairman and Managing Director.
Armed with extensive experience, managerial foresight and combined with the efforts of a dedicated team of professionals, GTA products became synonymous with quality that was of the highest standards. Their unparalleled customer service led them to win accolades and resulted in an ever increasing client base. With the resulting exponential growth in business, GTA established their independent identity in the industry. The acquisition of an existing plastic injection molding factory in 2002 further paved the way for GTA not only to commence manufacturing of top selling hangars but to also foray into the plastic container business.
The success story that has helped GTA to become the largest manufacturer of plastic hangers in the Middle East & African (MEA) region is rooted in Mr. Lall’s vision, commitment, drive and unwavering customer support. Presently GTA has manufacturing facilities in Jordan, Kenya, South Africa, and Ethopia. Collectively these factories are currently producing hangars which fulfil the product demand needs in the Middle East and the entire African region. It is the same vision and drive which is shaping the plans of these factories such that they can produce the entire range of their plastic products in the foreseeable future with the unit in Ethiopia manufacturing garment trims and products. GTA is poised for augmented growth with the company’s expansion plan of opening a 20,000 sq. mtrs. factory in Khalifa Free Zone (Kaze) in Abu Dhabi by 2014. Furthermore GTA’s plan to add a FMCG division to its repertoire has already been met with enthusiasm from many popular household retail giants.
From the onset, product quality has been accorded the highest importance within the group followed closely by customer service. It is as a result of this foresight that GTA is known across diversified markets for its high quality products. Stringent quality control systems are adhered to, with the factory and processes internationally certified by Wal-Mart and Macys. The already existing high standards of customer service are further enhanced by modern internal audit systems.
As GTA moves towards more demanding markets and customers, it forges its inherent strength with innovative products and state-of-the- art technology to continuously strive towards maintaining high quality standards while offering a wide range of products and services.
