The parent company Jitendra Kumar Lalbhai (JKL) has been in the yarn marketing business since 1965 and is today a leading player in marketing of raw cotton, yarn and fabric in the domestic Indian market with a customer profile of leading Indian manufacturers like Arvind, Alok, and Bombay Dyeing etc. This legacy of trust, goodwill and relationship was to be carried forward to the international arena…
With a very far-sighted vision and a mission that not many even dare to think of, ACME International Ltd was formed in 1996 to bring about a positive turn-around in the textile sector and to become India’s premier textile buying house. The product focus was yarns which were the groups core strength and then to move forward to slowly get all textile products from fibre to garments under one roof to becomea end to end supply chain partner for our customers. Inheriting the parent group’s legacy, this Gen-next organisation has and will continue to follow traditional values like trust, reliability and long term relationships that goes in making of an organisation which is professional, ethical and makes a global impact.
