THE DSS STORY

Darbara Singh & Sons

The DSS (Darbara Singh & Sons) story begins before the Second World War, in 1938, when two brothers from Amritsar in Punjab went to Japan, with dreams of adventure and fortune. They began by setting up a business, importing general merchandise from Japan … and that dream - which has crystallized into a Healthcare & Biotechnology focus continues to unfold.

In 1998, Darbara Singh & Sons transformed its identity to DSS Imagetech and adopted the motto “Inspired By Technology” as it’s mantra for growth. The new avatar of DSS -- DSS Imagetech – sought out new technologies in the field of Microscopy and Molecular Diagnostics and developed its expertise in these fields. A few years later, with the formation of the Medical division, DSS adopted the same knowledge and proficiency in Endoscopy, Bronchoscopy and Simulator-based Surgical Training.
