1931 - Current

History

 

Camlin Pvt. Lmt. began as Dandelar & Co. in 1931 out of Bombay, India providing ink powders and tablets.  Their brand, Camel, was chosen as a symbol for a variety of reasons.  They wanted to show its capacity to endure long periods of difficulty in the trips across the desert.  It was also used because it was easy to write in all Indian languages and it wasn't offensive to any of the religions.  In 1946 they created Camlin which is a combination of their Camel brand and "Ink".  In 1947 they began to expand their products to various chalks, adhesives and other office products as well as to expand their distribution network across India.  In 1962 they expanded into the Art Material market which included tehir first wax crayons.  In 1982 they launched an all-India Camel color contest that continues to this day.  Towards the 1990s and beyond they have spread out internationally but still remain heavily focused on India as their primary market.
