On 18th January 1999, the offices and factory of Talwar Brothers were destroyed in a devastating fire. It was payday for all the employees. Founder Balraj Talwar and son Vijay Talwar set up a makeshift table on the sidewalk in front of the burnt building and paid out salaries in cash to each one of the employees of Talwar Brothers.
The insurance company delayed the payment of the insurance claim for two years. During this time the business was run from home. Their customers all over the world helped them: people accepted delayed deliveries, gave them advance payments against orders and even paid them advances without any orders to help them get back on their feet. Suppliers made bills: “Payable when able” and all three generations - Balraj, Vijay and Pooja - worked together to bring the company back from the ashes.
Six years later in 2004, they shifted to their current building as shown in the picture on the right.
In 2008, Balraj Talwar died and one and half year later Pooja Talwar married Abhi Chakrabarti and moved to the USA to be with her husband.
For five years, Vijay Talwar ran the company alone, and in 2013, Abhi and Pooja decided to leave USA and join the family company. For the last two years, the company is being run by a three person managerial team of Abhi, Pooja and Vijay.
