Two people in 1999 – Shri Mahendra Nayak & Shri Pratapchand Sundvesha came together with the idea of doing something to promote & protect the interest of Distributors, Wholesellers, etc., of stationery trade. Their Ideas, tireless efforts & perseverance led to the formation of an Association ,-SSVA -SUBURBUN STATIONERY VYAPARI ASSOCIATION IN 2000.From a humble beginning with few members to the present day strength of 64 active members. SSVA owes a lot to these two visionaries.
SSVA was formed with the idea of promoting FREE, HEALTHY & TRANSPARENT trade where all benefit & progress. In a short span of 12 years SSVA has matured from a child to a teenager growing from strength to strength.
