Our story spans over 100 years. It is the saga of three generations of foundrymen & engineers and our early years of trails and tribulations in pursuit of engineering excellence.
Our humble beginnings can be traced back to the year 1896 when our founding fathers, Mian Hussain Buksh Qadri and Mian Karim Buksh Qadri set up a small cast iron foundry wayside at Branderth Road, Lahore.
Winds of revolution had begun to sweep over the subcontinent. India, the jewel in the British crown, simmered with political sentiment soon to unfold. Pitted against heavy odds, the brothers worked tirelessly through the twilight of the British Raj. There were nights when the children slept hungryâ€¦.. The familyâ€™s resilience reached new heights.
Pakistanâ€™s birth in 1947 offered great opportunity for the sons who had come of age. The family business expanded with the setup of new metallurgical foundries in the industrial areas of Karachi and Lahore, the two major hubs of Pakistanâ€™s industry.
Today, our tradition of hard work and dedication has enabled us to stand tall as a member of Pakistanâ€™s Heavy Engineering Sector. We take pride in our hard earned pre-eminence as manufacturers of heavy plant & equipment for Pakistanâ€™s sugar, steel, cement, chemical, petrochemical and power generation sectors.
On the global front, working hand in hand with world renowned technology partners, we hold the unshared honor of being the only machinery manufacturer in Pakistan exporting heavy plant & equipment to USA, Brazil, Central America, Europe, Africa and South East Asia.
While all of our Group Companies has embraced a corporate management culture, we always take pride in our humble beginnings and spare no effort to inculcate the virtues of a traditional close-knit family within our organization.
The process of establishing new companies with in the QADRI-Group is ongoing. In doing so, a conscious effort has always been made for the scope of activities of each company to complement those of the others and so to reinforce the QADRI Group at the centre. In this sense the pattern of our growth has been centripetal rather than centrifugal.
At the same time we attach the high priority to forge links with the worldâ€™s leading technology companies for plant & equipment falling under scope of manufacture.
The resultant synergy has enabled us to offer customized and cost effective solutions and equipment to customers at home and abroad.
