The brand Elite began its journey in early 60's in Assam as brainchild of entrepreneur Sri Satya Ranjan Bhowmik. His idea of providing the masses durable and contemporarily fashioned footwear at affordable price and his dedication soon paid off. Within the next few years, Elite build up a wide network in places,with distributors and agents in Assam, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa, Tamilnadu and Karnataka and by the late 70’s this network extended to Kolkata as well. Today Elite is a professionally managed organization supporting numerous corrage units and offers employment indirectly to a huge number of people. 

Success in the wholesale market encouraged the company to move to its retail segment. Consequently three larger retail outlets were opened in Tezpur and it met with immediate success. This in turn generated the confidence to open a 3000 square feet, multistory showroom in Behala in 1999. This is one of the largest showrooms in Kolkata although positioned close to older, more experienced competitors, has attracted customer from the very beginning.
