About Us

The group was founded in 1976 by Bhagwat Prasad Mittal. A highly distinguished and capable engineer, from the Banaras Hindu University, he has to his credit many pioneering developments that took place in India, including the development of the first self-priming construction pumps for the famous Bhakra Nangal Dam. Mr Mittal had a vision to always develop innovative products for the country, be it engineering equipment, automotive components, or security products.

Some of his pioneering efforts include development and manufacturing of:
Petroleum handling pumps
Sewage handling pumps
Pumps for Rotating Turbines for Power Generation in Hydro-electric projects
Ash handling pumps in Thermal Power projects
Pumps for Lift Irrigation schemes, such as the Kashmir canal, the Rajasthan canal, the Indira Gandhi canal in Haryana, the Beas-Sutlej Link project in Punjab and several others
Well-point Dewatering equipment for the Farakka Barrage in West Bengal

In 1982 Group Aristocraft diversified into the conversion industry specialising in slitting of delicate and narrow webs of films, foils and laminates.

This is when Mr Mittal started to develop the Security Thread for the Indian Bank notes as an import-substitute. The efforts finally bore fruit in 1991, when against a global tender we were awarded a large order for supply of 5,000 kgs of security thread. With our focus on innovation, in the mid 90's we developed the Demetalised UV Fluorescent Security Thread, again a pioneering development by Group Aristocraft.

Surging ahead, in 2005, the company joined hands with Papierfabrik Louisenthal - a global leader in the Banknote industry and established a greenfield facility for the manufacture of machine readable security threads. With a firm technical backing of a globally renowned leader, Group Aristocraft is poised to achieve many a milestones.

The second generation entrepreneur, Anshu Mittal joined Group Aristocraft in 1987 and is presently steering its entire operations. He received extensive industrial entrepreneurial guidance and training from his father and is a graduate of the Shri Ram College of Commerce, University of Delhi.
