Founded in late sixties by the present Chairman and Managing Director Jayantibhai Jariwala, Colourtex ventured into dyestuff manufacturing in 1976 with a modest set-up in the industrial suburb of Surat, Gujarat. Colourtex grew rapidly in four decades to become the largest producer of dyes in the Indian subcontinent. Today, Colourtex manufacturing capabilities are unmatched with product mix of over 750 dyes from an annual installed capacity of 122,000 tonne of dyes. Colourtex is the single most dedicated and by far the largest dyestuff company engaged in serving the textile and leather industry in the Indian subcontinent.
