Mr. Vithal P. Vagal - Founder of
M/S Modern Engravers
The Company "M/S MODERN ENGRAVERS" was
established in the year 1951. The establishment of the company
by Mr. Vithal Pandurang Vagal was itself an achievement,
which began long before independence in the year 1938. It
all started with buying an engraving machine
which was set-up itself in a one-room (10x10 feet room)
residence of Mr. Vithal in Girgaum, Mumbai. In-laws of Mr.
Vithal helped their son-in-law, with their support
and some of finances. It was a difficult task to stay and
work in the same place sharing one single room amongst 9
family members. But those were the "days of joy" reckons
Mr. Vithal. Due to his courage, strong will and determination
Modern was the first company in Mumbai to have imported Deckel Engraving Machines from Germany. Since that moment
there was no looking back and a small workshop expanded
into a small scale industry under the name of M/S Modern
We are proud to announce that we celebrated Diamond
Jubilee Celebrations 1951-2011.
Mr. Vithal's confidence was further boosted when his son,
Mr. Ranjan Vithal Vagal at the age of 16, Stepted into the
same footsteps as his father. Modern Engravers has always
been a one man show first by father (Mr. Vithal) and then
by son (Mr. Ranjan). Mr Ranjan gave new boundaries to the
company by opening two more sister concern M/S Ranjan Art
Engravers and M/S G.S. Engineers and Engravers in 1972 &
1994 respectively. Both father and son had tremendous support
from their wives Mrs. Vaijayanti Vagal and Mrs Rama Vagal
respectively and other family members, and when it comes
to business Unity boosts their Strength. Recently the
company enpisaged the third generation family member 'Mr.Gautam
Ranjan Vagal' and 'Mr. Saurabh Ranjan Vagal' joining the family business, by following his
Grandfathers & Fathers Footsteps. Mr. Ranjan's success
knew no limit when two Deckel CNC 3-axis & 4-axis Milling
M/C were imported from Germany as an expansion to Modern.
This proved to be a turning point in the history of Modern
which was cherished both by the family and its employees.
Keeping abreast with time both Mr. Vithal and Mr. Ranjan
attended regular exhibition in England and Germany regarding
engraving and engineering. Not only that Mr. Ranjan also
had a couple of months specialized training in Germany,
regarding machines and engraving.
Modern's investment in its employees itself is a history
and an extension of Mr. Vagal's family. Modern is blessed
to have such wonderful and loving employees, some of them
who have worked with the company for more than 35 years.
They have always been and will always be a strong asset to the
company. The standing of the company today is also
predominantly due to
its valued customers, who have supported the company since
its development. We, take this opportunity to thank all
our valued customers for their support and trust in the
company & also look forward to always fulfilling their demands.

CNC 3-axis & 4-axis milling machine with CAD/CAM system.

It's a Diamond Jubilee Period for the Company as it celebrated Diamond Jubilee in the year 2011. Our kind regards to everyone who

Struggle and failure is a way to success which this company
has envisaged during its growth. It is a dream come true

of success confidently but steadily.
