Amidst the chaotic and turbulent time of the partition of the Indian subcontinent into two independent nations, India and Pakistan, It was 9th April, 1946 which marked the dawn of a new era in the history of Indian leather industry, it was the day when a person, meagre in resources but high in ambition established a small tannery in the north city of Kanpur, With his visionary Skills and farsightedness ,this austere person understood the winds of change and opted for a new venture, i.e. from family business of Trading to Manufacturing.
Today, all Super Group companies, in Kanpur and Unnao, owe their entire success achieved over the last 72 years to this noble soul. Mr. Choudhry Mohammad Amin and his only son Mr. Choudhry Ehsan Kareem who took the reigns of this business after the sudden demise of his father in 1955 and ran it till his own death in 1995
These two illustrious gentlemen were the grandfather and father, respectively of the Managing Director of the company- VEQARUL AMIN.
Veqarul Amin joined the family business in 1982 as an apprentice and then went to Nene College, Northampton, England for a course in Leather Technology. His son, ZAKI AMIN, also joined the business in 2011 after completing his graduation in civil engineering from University of Wales, Swansea, UK.
