About Us

Our motto: "If it can be made in rubber, it can be made by Lathia."

The year was 1953. As a newly independent India was slowly finding its feet, we, at Lathia, were busy sowing the seeds of development with our desire to provide trustworthy and reliable rubber solutions.

It all started with the foresight of our founder, late Shri S.V. Lathia, who established our first unit in Lamington Road, Mumbai. Since then, we have been striving to take his vision forward through constant innovation and hard work and live up to his core principle: “for honest and efficient service”

Our Legacy

Over the course of more than 70 years and spanning three generations, LRMC has built a lasting legacy. Our evolution from a modest venture to a leading fully integrated solutions-provider is a consequence of the enduring partnerships we have established with our clients. 

Amidst this growth, our objective has remained the same: to cultivate trust and foster mutually beneficial relations with all our stakeholders. Our firm commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction has enabled us to surpass numerous milestones along the way.
