The legacy of giving back to society was inherited from our founder, the late Mr. Abasaheb Garware. A visionary philanthropist, he was awarded India’s third-highest civilian honour Padmabhushan for his contribution to Indian industry and society. He extended generous support to a number of educational institutes, hospitals, charities and trusts.
Following in his footsteps, our former chairman, the late Mr. Ramesh Garware too imbibed this admirable trait. His philanthropic traits and passion for giving back to the society reflected in his active and enthusiastic involvement in various social initiatives.
Mr. Vayu Garware, current Chairman & Managing Director, has continued this tradition and extends unstinted support for various social causes and pursues newer avenues to broaden the sphere of activities.
