The Story

Founded 65 years ago in Chennai, Witco is one of the early pioneers in modern retailing of luggage in India. With 60% market share, Witco is today South India’s largest multi brand retailer in premium luggage and bags.

The company was founded in 1951 by the late MPC Mohamed, one of the pioneers of the plastic industry in Chennai. The firm called West India Plastic Trading Co (Witco) was established in George Town, Madras. It has come to be known as one of the most trusted brands in the country.

Early on, Witco made a wise decision to move away from manufacturing and focus only on retail. The liberalisation of the economy during this time brought new life to Witco.

Witco was later recognised for being of the one of the most innovative brands in the retail luggage space. Some of our innovations over the years include

Luggage with wheels in the ‘70s  |  Cinema advertising in the ‘70s  |  First architect/designer-executed luggage showroom in 1976
First multi-level luggage store in ‘70s  |  First independent high-street luggage store
Unique customised and customer friendly display modules  |  Unique customised lighting fixtures
First store with energy-saving, environmentally-friendly, modular VAC air-conditioning system run on Diesel
Top retailer of Samsonite brand in India
