Our History

The Raja Group, with great pleasure and pride bring in 2019 with celebrations of the 59 glorious years of the group serving our customers and stakeholders in our home base Kuwait and  the MEA region. This journey is dedicated to our Founding Father Late Mr. Govind T. Mirchandani. It all started in 1952 when our founder (Late Mr. Govind Mirchandani) first set foot on a boat and arrived in Kuwait from India after an eight day journey.

Nine years later his vision and dream was realized and Raja Stores & General Trading Company W.L.L. was conceived in 1961. Raja Stores flourished and was indeed one of the most well known Departmental stores in the State of Kuwait during it's time carrying  the latest in Gifts and Toys, Perfumes, Clothing, Audio, Video and Book Libraries and Tailoring product lines. Difficulties were faced such as the invasion of Kuwait in 1990, however as Jean de la Bruyere rightly said "Out of difficulties grow miracles". 

The approach of our founder  to all our customers and well-wishers has been one with a  ” Personal Touch”, and this has lead over the years to a Loyal customer base. 

Being a soft spoken and a large hearted person, his vision was to “Create a Wonder” in every person he met and Mission was to bring in “Constant Innovation” in our offerings which brings the change needed for a Company and thereby a Nation to progress.

His Legacy is being carried on by his Son Mr. Rohit G Mirchandani the Managing Director of the group , who with the same Zeal, Vision and Mission has brought in tremendous growth with high levels of integrity and passion. 

The Journey of Raja Group over the  58 years which started as a Departmental store, has diversified into various verticals under the Oil & Gas industry and is today recognized as one of the leading solutions provider in the State of Kuwait for supply of quality Safety, Industrial & Engineering products and services.
