1976

Our group has humble beginnings in a small, 100 square feet shop in Mumbai. We delivered our first glass on cycles! Fishfa Group is established.

1982

We import the country’s first-ever float glass from Europe, a marked change from the usual lower-quality sheet glass. Ahead of its time? Maybe, but it’s better to ring in the future, rather than clinging on to the present!

1995

Another first! We introduce Indian architecture to glass blocks. Aesthetically superior to conventional bricks, the blocks and by extension, Fishfa Glass, soon became every architect’s first choice.

1997

We import low-iron glass from Europe, making our name synonymous with extra clear glass across India.

2002

We grow again. We set up a mega warehouse to stock our products, offering our esteemed customers near-zero wait times.

2004

Time to move forward – massively! We set up an insulating and tempering facility on the outskirts of Mumbai, near the country’s largest seaport. Of course, we continue to prioritize high quality, transparency and technological superiority.

2005 to 2006

Time to get certified! Our ISO and ARAI certifications come through and we get validated by Saint-Gobain for our high-performance coatings. We become a founding member of the Federation Of Safety Glass (FOSG), India’s largest processed glass association. We also set up our first corporate office in Mumbai. Talk about a busy couple of years.

2007

We are growing yet again. We plan and execute our first factory expansion and commence the operations of PVB laminated glasses to meet India’s demand for security glass. We become India’s first company to use fully-automated glass-handling systems. DuPont (now Kuraray) certifies us to process SentryPlus™ laminated glasses.

2008

In just a year, we are expanding our factory again. We’ve added a German cutting assembly, an Italian CNC-seaming system and a Finnish fast-tempering furnace with forced top-and-bottom convection. We partner with PPG, America’s largest glass company, to become their International Certified Fabricator (ICFP). We begin processing the world-renowned Solarban™ range of low-E glasses and execute South Asia’s first-ever triple-silver low-E glass project in Mumbai.

2010

Our list of certifications increases with Pilkington’s Suncool™ series, AGC’s Stopray™ series and Asahi India’s Ecosense series. We become India’s largest processor of high-performance low-E glass. We also set up Asian Prelam Industries. We break into India’s wooden furniture industry and install the country’s first and most advanced short-cycle press line from Wemhöner Germany. This leads to us becoming Western India’s largest supplier of pre-laminated boards to modular furniture manufacturers.

2011

We get our ISO 9001:2008 certification for our quality systems. The Ministry of Commerce, Government of India awards us the Export House Certificate in April, validating our project footprint in 35+ countries. SCHOTT™ recognizes us as their exclusive processor and distributor of fire-rated architectural glass in South Asia.

2012

Yet another expansion! Third time’s a charm. We grow out of our existing factory and set up a warehouse close by to support our processing operations. We add another 50,000 square feet to our property and include a robotic sealing equipped insulating glass line from Lisec, Austria.

2015

Asian Prelam builds bonds with EGGER and Roma to distribute their edge-bands to furniture producers. Perfectly complementing our pre-laminated board series, our new venture is an instant hit with customers.

2016

We’re expanding again! We add a magnetic-drive controlled cutting line from Germany and a super-quick seaming and washing system to create an integrated pre-processing setup. Our improvements increase our capacity by 30%, allowing us to deliver to our customers in record time. We decide to integrate all our company office operations and move into a swanky new office in Lower Parel!

2018-2019

FG undertakes yet another expansion! We completely overhaul our pre-processing and handling capabilities. We establish West India’s first digital printing line and jumbo tempering line, allowing us to process glass sizes up to 3000 mm x 6000 mm! CreativFish, a passion project and design firm specializing in brand identity is born.

2021-2022

We receive our ASNZ, IGCC and SGCC certifications, taking us global. We are now recognized in America, Australia and New Zealand! Our factory building dons a new avatar.
