The Goodrich story started in the year 1997, when the promoters of the company T. Venkataraman and R. Gopal incorporated a company called Goodrich Maritime Pvt. Ltd., in Mumbai, India. The objectives before the promoters were to provide Shipping Agency services to the Indian trade. In the 19 years’ of its existence, this company grew in a formidable manner, to encompass within its scope, activities ranging from various spheres of shipping and logistics services.
It expanded geographically from a small presence in Mumbai to various ports and ICDs in India and overseas. Today Goodrich has a very strong presence in overseas locations like UAE, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand. Kazakhstan, Afghanistan and the USA, and a cumulative employee strength of around 560 people. It is recognized by the Indian trade as “The Most Versatile and The Fastest Growing Logistics Company in India.
Aiming to be among the TOP globally too!
From a predominantly India-centric operation, Goodrich today has multiple global operations. The Goodrich Management has never believed in having an unlimited number of group companies needlessly, but always believed in creating additional companies in the group, with a clear-cut strategy in mind. Sometimes geographical and at other times activity-oriented!
The highly proactive Directors of the Goodrich group have been trailblazers and trendsetters. Working on a 24×7 basis, these leaders have propelled the group to great heights over the last 19 years. This is evident also from the year-on-year growth in the top line and net profits of group companies. So deep rooted are their innovative capabilities, that they could visualize that their dream could fade away if they do not introduce ingenuous activities within their core competency and that was Shipping and Logistics.
There was a lot of thought and design in their approach. Today they are in a position to insulate and protect their profitability, from any untoward downward trend in one or a couple of their activities.
If their efforts have been tireless, their superbly trained and motivated personnel have taken a cue from them, to pursue the goals set by the Directors.
To achieve such an eminent place in the mercantile marine world, the sweat of the people’s efforts was supported by an amiable office atmosphere and constantly enhancing the state-of-art IT infrastructure.
The parent company, Goodrich Maritime is already ISO 9001-2008 certified, and along the way the Dubai outfit Goodrich Maritime LLC has also been similarly accredited by DNV-GL. Goodrich is also moving towards other product specific certifications.
