PLR GROUP LOGOGroup's History

Indian Trade which was under the British Raj till the late 40's was used to monoply. Similarly the cotton yarn market was controlled by a group of traders who determined the cotton yarn industry of India. It was in this period that gave birth to PLR group which was the brain child of a young man Mr P.R.Prabhakar who belonged to a conservative family of yarn traders.

He was one of the first people to venture overseas & begin yarn exports for India. In the late 60's & early 70's, Textile yarn manufacturing was a Licensed Industry in India. The supply was limited hence overseas markets were not of interest as the demand could not be met by the local manufacturers & exports were generally done through tenders. PLR had booked most of its export orders by these tenders which were to countries like Sri-Lanka, Bangladesh, Burma & East European Countries.

Durning the early 80's liberalization of the cotton yard industry was seen & export of yarn become free. PLR became a major player in the international machete. Over the last decade the company has built up excellent relationship with buyers in various countries all over the world.
