About Us

Janki Ballabh Maru

Maru family pioneered the industrial sector with the first automated rice and oil mill in 1937 AD. 

The launch of the first-ever brand Guheshwori, with solvent extracts of edible oils from Sal seeds and non-edible oils for soap industries, marked a significant achievement for the Maru family.

A fresh graduate degree holder of Civil and Mechanical engineering, when realized the expense of dependency our country has on others for mineral resources, set a vision to make the country self-reliant and independent. Wanting to bring a simpler and efficient way of producing these reserves, he diverted from edibles and created a field for himself in the mineral sector.

This vision created a fulcrum that revolutionized the Mineral Industry and further paved a progressive path for Nepal’s economy.

His first step was bringing in a mining and import-export business. As early as 1977, he established the world’s first talc processing plant with an alliance trading with Bangladesh and India. Succeeding this, JB Maru then established the Maruti Cement company in 1996 A.D that overpowered other active Cement Industries at the time.

Though the history of the Maru family goes back to 107 years, the cornerstone of success for the family is the JB Maru group, initiated by Janaki Bhallab Maru in 1977 A.D.

Having accomplished many things through several decades, JB Maru then ventured to guide his two sons through this wave of change. His trust in his sons came as a blissful lineage.
Active and energetic youths of the Maru heritage, Raghu Nandan Maru and Anjani Nandan Maru took the responsibility to spread and expand the visions of their father into their umbrella branches as it flourished nationwide. And thus, the JB Maru group formed as a collective form of industries under it.

JB Maru Group, presently, is accountable for building thousands of houses, furnishing numerous homes, and trading and manufacturing excellence by employing and empowering more than 200 unique points of view. We achieve this by aligning our goals with our core values.

Committed to upholding the values of integrity, excellence, and unity, our motto – सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः  All should flourish, aptly captures our paramount goal – to contribute to the country’s self-reliance and independence. 

Looking back, we from JB Maru Group have experienced being a pioneer corporation of Nepal with pride in the history and legacy of our roots. We are recognized throughout the nation for our dedication, customer gratification, and well-grounded products.
