Kurlon’s journey is a fine lesson in entrepreneurship. During a visit to Germany, Ramesh Pai discovered that high-end motor car seats used rubberized coconut-coir fibre manufactured from Sri Lankan base material. He knew that India was one of the largest producers of coconut in the world and so, he rightly assumed, there was a new business to be pioneered. Charged with this thought, he returned home to start his journey of discovering how best he could take advantage of the coir husk India produced. He found that coconut coir was being used only by the cottage industry to manufacture retted fabric. From here his idea took shape and become the predecessor to Kurlon – Karnataka Consumer Products Limited – was formed in 1962.
