Patriarch of the Kalsi Empire, Late. S. Maghar Singh Kalsi, an enterprising first generation entrepreneur, shifted from Lahore to Jalandhar in the year 1947, during the partition of undivided India. In lieu of the electric fan manufacturing unit, left behind in Lahore, he was allotted a hand pump manufacturing unit in the year 1948. The day he unlocked the shutters of this unit, customers started pouring in making sales inquiries. This prompted him to start manufacturing hand pumps under the trade name ‘KALSI’. This laid down the foundation of legacy of the KALSI Group.
