Leading the field in diverse directions
Ahmed’s younger brother Abdul Latif Ebrahim joined him in Rangoon, Burma who was earlier trading in textile and hosiery. The two brothers established a partnership by the name of Ahmed Ebrahim Brothers. With extensive hard work and a clear vision of success, they propelled the company to rapid growth. Soon, associate offices spread across Burma and into parts of India.
With the strength of a flourishing business behind them, the two brothers rapidly worked towards setting up Ahmed Violin Hosiery Works (Burma) Ltd., which quickly became the largest hosiery factory in Asia. Located in a suburb of Rangoon, the new factory began exporting hosiery to every corner of India and China, making its name as the hallmark in quality and durability.
During the war, Burma became the center of Japanese hostilities. Hence, the brothers decided to go back to their home state of Kathiawar in India. Joint stock companies in ceramics, salt, tanning and hosiery were set up. Of these, Kathiawar Industries, Dilawar Syndicate and the Bawany Hosiery Works become the most successful and well-known.
After partition, the two brothers dreamt of playing a part in the industrial growth of the newly born nation of Pakistan. Ahmed Brothers Ltd was transferred from Bombay to Karachi to act as the parent body of the Bawany group of companies headed by the younger brother Abdul Latif Ebrahim. In the interim, Ahmed Ebrahim stayed back to manage the companies in Burma, he sent his sons to Pakistan with his younger brother.
The first major industrial enterprise established in Pakistan was Bawany Violin Textile Mill Ltd under the Chairmanship of Abdul Latif Bawany. Abundant with man-power of his seven sons and a remarkable history of success, Ahmed Ebrahim availed the opportunity to establish more industrial units; first in Pakistan (formerly West Pakistan) and later in Bangladesh (formerly East Pakistan).
More than 15 industrial units were established and successfully managed by sons of Ahmed Ebrahim Bawany after the death of their father and uncle. Mohammad Amin Bawany, the fifth son of Ahmed Ebrahim managed most of the industrial units in Pakistan to set an example for a triumphant business paradigm.
Today with its ethics and core values rooted deep enough, Amin Bawany Group stands tall with branches widespread all over Pakistan and abroad. The small seed once laid back in 1897, has now achieved big dreams. In the 21st Century, the next generation at Amin Bawany Group, now has a long way to go. We aim to be known as active partners in the economic prosperity and industrial progress of Pakistan.
