Top German honour for Zodiac Clothing Co’s MY Noorani

Professor Dr Horst Koehler, President of the Federal Republic of Germany, has conferred the Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany on MY Noorani, who had established Zodiac Clothing Company Ltd.

Noorani had opened up the German market for Indian textile manufacturers in the 1960s, when, as President of the Clothing Manufacturers’ Association, he had initiated the participation of an increasing number of Indian companies in German textile-related trade fairs. These same Indian companies also became important customers of German textile machinery suppliers.

As member of the Committee of the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce from 1992-2000 (he was also President of the Council of the EU Chambers of Commerce in India for two years and a member of its Committee since 1993), Noorani played a significant role in promoting Indo-German trade and investment relations. In the Indo-German Chamber’s Committee, he was succeeded by his son, Anees, who also became President of the Chamber for the period 2004-05.

The German Ambassador to India, Thomas Matussek, will hand over the Deed of Conferment and the insignia to Noorani at a function hosted by Walter Stechel, Consul General of Germany in Mumbai, on December 25, 2009.

Noorani’s leisure activity of gardening has led to his being involved in the beautification of Mumbai, having served on the Managing Committee of ‘Bombay First’, an initiative of the Bombay Chamber of Commerce & Industry, for the development of Mumbai.
