About the founder

Background

Shri Gorantla Ramalingaiah, the founder of BLISS Group of companies was born in a middle class family on 20th May 1917 in a small town called Gauribidanur (Karnataka)..

Groundnut Business

He first started groundnut decortication and oil mill. He was as shrewd a businessman as he was pious. Soon his business at Kadiri picked up because of his straight forward nature and honesty. This attracted large clientele. He was charitable at heart and cherished lofty ideals. This earned him esteem of all those with whom he had dealt with.

Business at Chennai

Shri Gorantla Ramalingaiah used to visit Madras very often in connection with his business. He then got an idea of starting a similar groundnut business at Madras. Due to his encouragement, his trusted uncle Shri Yadalam Lakshmaiah and working partners namely Shri L V Ramaiah and Shri P L N Gupta, he started trading in groundnut and oil at Madras in the name and style of M/s Yadalam and co., Soon he himself migrated to Madras with his family in 1968. By his unique commercial acumen, honesty and fairness, he earned a lot of wealth in a short time.

Trading

After a few years of great success in business, circumstances compelled him to start M/s Yadalam Lakshmaiah and Gorantla Ramalingaiah company which became a leading company dealing in oil seeds and oils in South India. Soon, he encouraged many of his relatives to come to Madras and also helped them to establish different companies trading in different commodities.

Other Companies

Meanwhile, his children who had grown up started entering business. With foresight, he thought of engaging them separately with new ventures.

Hence he started companies by name

M/s Sree Prakash Finance Corporation,

M/s Sudhakar Financiers managed by his second son Mr G P N Gupta.

Similarly he started M/s Standard paper Industries Corporation managed by his elder son Mr G Sudhakar.

Paper Industries

These two ventures became popular in a short span of time and soon became the forerunners of future business empire in a short span of time. Thus, having started in a relatively unknown field i.e paper business, he and his children worked hard and untiringly for nearly 10 years, to create a name for themselves.

His meticulous planning and able execution of his business plans made the company a popular one. 1970 happened to be a turning point in Gorantla family.

It was during this year that they started M/s Standard Paper Industries corporation dealing with water proof packing materials by his elder son Mr G Sudhakar. Soon after this enterprise, they started a trading firm M/s Balaji Trading Enterprises dealing in different varieties of paper.

From them onwards, there was no looking back in their ventures. Shri Ramalingaiah strongly believed in the dictum diversification is the key for business profitability.
