More than 70 Years of Innovation
It all began in 1926, when what is now the Forbes Marshall Group started supplying textile accessories to a thriving textile industry in Ahmedabad. Forbes Marshall's focus on Energy Conservation dates back to our foundation in 1946 when the group entered into the distribution of products for the effective and efficient use of steam for energy. At the same time, the company went into the boiler business. By 1958, the first manufacturing unit was established in Kasarwadi, Pune.
In 1962, Forbes Marshall entered the field of control instrumentation by introducing a range of world class pH analyzers in a joint venture with Cambridge Instruments UK, to manufacture a complete range of water quality analysers. Our expertise in steam processing and liquid analysis led to the extension of process media through a joint venture in 1984 with KROHNE, Germany and we began manufacturing a wide range of flow and level equipment. In the same year we formed an association with Shinkawa, Japan for vibration monitoring solutions. As specialists in process control, we have introduced a range of control valves and de-superheating stations in collaboration with ARCA Regler, Germany, since 1985.
In 2008, Forbes Marshall made its first investment in an overseas company, Codel International UK and in 2014, Codel became a fully owned group company. In 2009, we formed a joint venture with VYNCKE of Belgium for the manufacture of bio-mass fired boilers. In 2015, Forbes Marshall acquired the entire shareholding of its JV partner, Spirax, in the steam systems business. Forbes Marshall has had a steady growth since our inception in 1946.
