Who We Are
The word ‘Purbani’ (Pur-baH-NEE) is derivative of a Sanskrit word that means "eastern incitement" or "the drawing together through eastern influence". The group itself shares that modality since it was never designed as a formal group of companies but only later was drawn together through a common influence and took on such a form. The group’s first venture was M/S Purbani traders in 1973. Since 1973, however, the Purbani group has grown into a leading group of companies in Bangladesh by virtue of its dynamic management approach, competitiveness, efficiency and clear single-minded vision. All the enterprises represented by the Purbani group are 100% export-oriented and enjoys loyal patronage from a broad client-base all over Europe, Northern America and the Far East.
In the early seventies, Purbani emerged in the textile business as a textile yarn trader. In 1984, the group entered into textile manufacturing by acquiring a spinning production line. Today, the group has a 100% export oriented vertically integrated knitted apparel production facility, that is, it uses its own spinning units to produce yarn and the yarn is used in the subsequent in-house processes to manufacture fabric and apparel for export. The manufacturing facilities are located in Narayanganj, Gazipur, Sirajganj and Cox's Bazar.
At Purbani, we strive towards becoming a good corporate citizen and a significant contributor to the national economy by playing a major role in creating employment and poverty alleviation.
Presently the company has an annual turnover of US$ 150 million annually and a total investment of US$ 80 million. It is currently employing 7000 people.
