MARVEL GROUP is a family company with business background of family of 105 years. Based in MUMBAI City and Ankleshwar Gujarat-India. The Group started a production unit in backward district to provide employment opportunities to the people from rural area and to help them to improve their living standards. As The Japanese Fully Automatic computerised seamless Gloves knitting machines was totally New Concept in the Global Market. SHIMA SEIKI MFG LTD JAPAN was launching computerised seamless Gloves Knitting Machines in 1984 and were hesitant to offer these new technology Automatic Gloves Machines to MARVEL which was inexperienced and totally new company with No Textle/knitting back ground. We therefore planned a visit to SHIMA SEIKI MFG LTD- WAKAYAMA JAPAN to Meet the President Mitsuhiro Shima to convince him to offer New Technology seamless knitted computerized Gloves knitting machines which were totally new High Technology Gloves Knitting Machines. Ultimately Mr Shima San agreed to supply Hitech Machines for India and we were the first one to import these latest machines India which were going to be installed in INDIA and that too in small Town of Ankleshwar Gujarat. Thus, the first manufacturing unit MARVEL GLOVES INDUSTRIES was founded in 1980 for the manufacture of machine knit Seamless gloves at Ankleshwar,that time small town in Gujarat State of India. In the initial stage the unit faced many hurdles, all the workers being inexperienced were trained to work in the factory and to operate the High Technology Fully automatic to produce Ambidextrous seamless knitted Cotton working Gloves . After Herculean efforts to train the workers in the small town of Ankleshwar Ultimate goal was achieved. Today Gujarat State is No.1 Industrial Hub of India and Ankleshwar has lot of Large Scale and Hi tech Public Sector Industries as well as Medium, Small Scale Industries.
Our Hard work and support of Workers made us successful, Highlight of our units is having workers, Males & Females from backward class & small villages around Ankleshwar -dist Bharuch Gujarat state.Today due to wonderful support Industries by Government of Gujarat, Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji , Hon’ble Chief Minister Shri Vijay Rupani ji
Main reason of our success is support of our Male & Female workers who are working with dedication to produce and maintain the Quality of Our Seamless Knitted Gloves made from Cotton Yarn, Nylon Yarn, Cut Resistant Kevlar (Para aramid Yarn) etc.
After success of first unit, the Group started 2nd Gloves knitting unit named AKFA GLOVES INDUSTRIES at Ankleshwar in 1994 which also provided employment to backward class people. As we believed in Quality, Service and our customers, we achieved success in 2nd Unit.
Our success in 2 units encouraged us to start 3rd Gloves knitting unit in the name of FAB INDUSTRIES at Ankleshwar in 1996. Later we started 3rd Unit Fab Industries for production of PVC Dotted knitted gloves.

Thus we upgrade our Products and also know more about New Products, Technology, Trends, of the Global & European Market.
In 2018, we also participated in National Safety Council (NSC) -2018 Exhibition held in Houston-USA which was also excellent show to know more about safety Trend in USA and Global Market and we are hoping to get more business from USA & other countries in near future. It is surprising and shocking to know that Safety measures taken by Indian Industries are not Sufficient to control Accidents, Injuries are common in workers in Industries and on road. Every Citizen of India working in Industries should be provided with Personal Protective Equipmens like Safety Gloves, Mask, Helmets,Shoes, Mask, Helmets etc to increase the work safety of workers
Our motto is to produce the quality products and also to import wide range of the Safety Gloves & Personal Protective Equipment for Indian Industries from International Quality Manufacturers to meet their increasing demand and to make Industrial working environment safe from accidents, Injuries to hands. It is pleasure to know that Indian Government has also taken serious view and have also issued white paper for compulsory use of suitable safety gloves by Industries to avoid cuts & heat injuries. In coming years, Indian workers will use safety measures to minimize the working accidents and injuries. All types of Industries in India should provide safety equipment to create safe working conditions for the progress of Industries and India.
Government of India should make regulation for Industries for providing work safety to workers
in India to reduce work place accidents and death and it will result in decrease in work place accidents and death. It should be made mandatory for factories or Industries to provide necessary
safety measures to workers to minimise the accidents and death of workers.
