Manufacturing safety is important to prevent or lessen the risk of workplace injury, illness and death.

The industry is a catch-all term to describe many different fields and companies, encompassing everything from battery manufacturing to the plastics industry. Manufacturing businesses may have vastly different operational practices and unique safety risks. Some businesses even have specific Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards and compliance regulations. The industry might also have specific hazards due to weather conditions such as extreme cold or heat.

Despite these differences, manufacturing businesses are plagued by common risks when trying to manage workplace incidents.

In light of the foregoing, we’re thrilled to present Uviraj Global Private Limited.

Uviraj excels in manufacturing and leads from the front. It’s a name to rely on in ‘Safety’ across the world. Numerous Corporations have trusted Uviraj’s brands and have helped it grow into what it is today.

The company was incorporated in 2010 and is headquartered in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh.

Synopsis: Uviraj Global Private Limited

Rewind: Taking Flight

At the age of 45, when other people start to plan their retirement, Rajiv Kohli was destined to start all over again. A sudden turn of events left Rajiv with nothing but his immediate loving family of a wife and two teen-aged sons, his two-decade old experience of running a successful business and his priceless and well-earned goodwill in the market through his sincerity and honesty.

Starting from scratch, with only a few thousand rupees in his pocket, Rajiv geared up himself to materialize his dreams into reality and he had to do this at a faster pace than he would have done otherwise. Thus, the Uviraj family was born in 2010 with its first establishment on a very small plot measuring 1,000m only. Fall protection equipment was manufactured here and its brand, Viraj safety first, rapidly gained its reputation worldwide. Within two years, cargo lifting slings and ratchet lashings were introduced as another diversified product range under the brand Kargolift that gave tough competition to the already existing brands in the Indian market. Though ecstatic with success, Rajiv was not to stop here. He spread his wings wider for a higher flight and launched the foot protection brand to manufacture Safety Footwear under the brand name, Alpha Gripp.

In the journey of only 9 years, the company has grown from 5 employees and 1000m production setup to a manufacturing area of over 100,000 square feet.

‘Hume Parvah Hai’, meaning ‘We Care’ is an aggressive campaign run by Uviraj to promote the use of health and safety equipments to the workforce of India. The tagline is making headlines among the industry and the brand is gaining immense popularity among the stakeholders.
