OVERVIEW


K. Girdharlal, better known as K.G., was established in 1967 dominantly as diamond traders, with little resources used in diamond cutting and polishing. In the early 1990s, we shifted our focus to cutting and polishing diamonds in Surat, becoming one of India's leading manufacturers in the industry. The business remains family run since its inception, with brothers and partners having global reach along the supply chain across the major diamond centres including Surat, Mumbai, Hong Kong, Antwerp and Dubai.

Till date, our favourite statistic is having over 2,500 employees worldwide that share our passion in various steps along the supply chain, which are: ethical rough diamonds sourcing, optimal manufacturing, polished diamonds distribution, and jewellery crafting and distribution.

Our environmentally friendly efforts while designing our current Surat factory in 2005 made us the first in the industry to achieve a Platinum Rating Award from the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) in July, 2014.

As we enter our fourth generation in business, we look forward to preserving relationships with all of our current stakeholders, whilst welcoming new associates. It is with this mindset, we coined the phrase "There's More to Making Diamonds"

CSR


GREEN INITIATIVES

It is with deep thought put into designing the K.G. House that we were award a Platinum rating from IGBC. The building has a unique, award winning thermal tank based HVAC plant, which runs at 0.5 IKW - saving ample power consumption.

The organization installed 3 windmills in Gujarat. The power generated from one windmill is utilized to run our diamond cutting and polishing activities. The remainder 2 windmills' power is sold to Gujarat Electricity Board (GEB) at a discounted rate and used to subsidize small scale industries and social causes.


COMMUNITY

Literacy Mission: Since the launch of this mission in 2006, our education subsidies have benefited 847 schools/ colleges and 1600 students - irrespective of the level and language of education.

Health: The employees of the K.G. House have had the privilege to carry out eye tests, dental care and health checkups.

Charity: Through the family's charitable trust, many contributions are made to NGO's and others engaged in providing medicine at discount, food for family members attending government hospitals, mid-day meals to the homeless, renovation of infrastructure in municipal schools and eye treatments.

ROUGH DIAMONDS


Shortly after beginning to manufacture diamonds, KG began to appreciate the art of sourcing rough diamonds. We strive to have consistent volume of supply to run the factory, although maintain a zero tolerance on conflict diamonds, strictly adhering to the Kimberly Process and Best Practice Principles.

It is with this aim and prerequisite that we are appreciative with our De Beers Sightholder status since 1996. Similarly, we are grateful for being an Alrosa customer since 2009 and a member of the Alrosa Alliance since 2014 through our Antwerp-based entity, Aspeco Belgium NV.

With the use of our expertise and technology, we procure rough diamonds at fair prices, allowing us to maximize value for our customers.
