It was in the year 1999 that 2 brothers with keen acumen for business went into partnership and floated a business entity titled - Valmax .
Based in Chennai, India, Valmax initially focused its activities on exports of Leather Goods, Foot Wear and Textiles. Primary locations included the Middle-east.
It was at the insistence of friends and well-wishers, who were by then regularly flocking to Valmax offices to buy their choice of the quality products, the trio decide to venture into Domestic Retail. In 2001 Feb, Valentino, a mini-boutique was inaugurated in the fashion-savvy Anna Nagar neighborhood and sold Leather Goods, Fashion Garments and Accessories part from some LifeStyle and TeenStyle products. A separate showroom for Footwear became a necessity and so Max Shoes came up in March 2001.
Due to heavy demand from the overseas markets, Valmax expanded its horizon and opened its 1st overseas office at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 2002. Headed by the Managing Director, Abdul Rahman, the company diversified into import of hardware & building material,stationery etc. Expansion into other global markets also became a reality with this diversification.
2005 saw the inauguration of two more retail outlets - Max Feetcare and Menzone catering to a the ever-growing loyal and referring customer base.
In the year 2007, Valmax has succssfully ventured into the e-commerce domain and is poised for further growth.
