At the fore of the battle against COVID-19 are our brave healthcare workers. It is inevitable for them to get exposed to the precarious virus if adequate precautions are missing. This makes wearing effective personal protective equipment (PPE) essential at all times to stay safe and guarded.
While several companies in India have come forth in PPE manufacturing, the Uviraj Group is an industry leader in the segment with more than a decade of experience. The group’s tagline, “Hume Parvah Hai”, speaks of their commitment to customer wellbeing and saving lives. Uviraj Group is helping India's workforce stay safe and healthy for over a decade now.
Another Name for Trust and Safety
Founded in 2010 by Rajiv Kohli, the Uviraj Group is a pioneer in the manufacture of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the country. Rajiv had made up his mind early on to build an organization on the core value of “helping save a life” and dedicated his efforts and resources towards developing a powerful manufacturing range.
Today, the Uviraj Group enjoys the status of one of India’s fastest-growing brands catering to several top-notch clients globally. The group’s delivery of trust and satisfaction to customers all over the world has been acknowledged by several reputable organizations.

A Comprehensive Range of Products
Personal Protective Equipment for healthcare and frontline workers is not the only equipment manufactured by the establishment. At Uviraj, there are multiple special arms of the large group that cater specifically to a range of products meant for different industries.

Alpha Gripp is another special arm of Uviraj which deals with Foot Protection products. This one-of-a-kind brand caters to the Indian footwear industry, producing shoes that are entirely free from leather and metals, thus more lightweight and comfortable than others in the market.
