Harisons & Harlaj Ltd. – The Start and The Persuasion

Mar 20th 2015 at 6:12 AM

Harisons & Harlaj Ltd. – The start and the persuasion

The company Harisons & Harlaj Ltd was initially established by Late Hari Chand Vij, after migrating from Pakistan, post partition. It is around 40 years since Panipat stepped into the exports market. This company has been a role model for all their followers and peers. This day the company contributes to a major part of the city’s economy and business. They have succeeded in creating so many innovations that are useful to the entire business community of the city, to date.

The Vij family

This is a business created, and maintained by the Vij family. This started with Late Hari Chand Vij, then continued by Chandan Vij, Dev Sagar Vij, Pitambar Vij, Sunil Vij (Panipat), Anil Vij, Prem Sagar Vij, Sahdev Vij and Raman Vij. This is a business that has already seen three generations of this family.

The growth

Initially, they were not at all known in the markets that happened in Delhi. That is when, one of their clients in Delhi handed over their business and respective clients to this family before they shifted the business. Then their business had a leap, a high jump from Panipat to Delhi. They were concentrating mainly in manufacturing and supplying products in India, in the seventies. Then the elder brother, Mr. Prem Sagar Vij, took this company into the international market, quitting the government job he had on hand. Then he decided to get direct international clients instead of using the market.

The perseverance

Few ideas did not work out very well in the beginning, but the family continued their sincere and hard work in the export market and in getting direct international clients. Slowly and steadily, they expanded their company, wide on the global market. In early eighties, they expanded their clients to Australia, Europe, Middle East, US, Japan, Latin America, and Canada.


Their innovations in creating new markets for Indian exports were recognized by the Government of India. In the year 1995, the company, Harisons & Harlaj Ltd., was awarded by the Ministry of Textile, for creating a new overseas market for handloom in Malta, Southern Europe. This is one of the best examples of their contributions to Panipat's business.

The ideas

They have brought in so many innovations in the industry. When most of the exported goods were made of hand spun yarn, they were the first to come up with the mill spun yarn and this created a revolution. They were the first to come up with jacquard and printed designs on the rug, which attracted global customers. Today in Panipat, almost all the handlooms create jacquard designs.

The legacy

The company generates revenue of around 250 crores and generates around 1,000 employments. The family has recently entered into the auto industry and are about to get into real estate as well. They have already started seeing success in their new ventures and have high goals for the future. This will help in generating revenue for the industry, as well as the country. The family dedicates their growth and success to their fathers and forefathers who created the business initially.
