Mr. Kirit Marfatia

Founder and Mentor

A visionary of the industry, Mr. Kirit G. Marfatia started GBM with the seed of an idea. His journey began back in 1965. After pursuing a B.Sc. in Physics, he took his first steps into the business of yarn manufacturing. In those times, the industry wasn’t organized. Despite this, he persisted and adopted a systemic methodology that allowed the organization to grow and flourish. By focusing on being quality-centric instead of cost-centric, he gave his business an extra edge. He even broke tradition, sought international partners, and worked with nature-based yarns from Japan. Such unique strategies made him stand apart from his competitors. 


His hard work has evolved into the established company that GBM Fabrics is today. Under his guidance, knowledge, and aptitude, the company grew and developed phenomenally. The high standard of fabrics as well as the efficient functioning of the company is a testament to his efforts. He was always ahead of his time — in terms of technology, processes, or management. Today we attribute whatever goodwill we have gathered amongst our clients, partners, and traders to Mr. Kirit.
