Dating back to 1960’s during the erstwhile Pakistan period the ancestors of the present Directors of the Group started trading & contractual business on a small scale at their native district Rajshahi situated at the northern part of Bangladesh.
After the emergence of Bangladesh the businesses flourished a little under the banner of Aman Trading Corporation. But it was in the late 1980s that the businesses in trading through importing various consumer items. Their marketing started witnessing a steady growth in the business.

Availing the facilities offered by the Government and for easier correspondences with the agencies of theirs as well as to avail banking facilities. The shifting of the Corporate Office from Rajshahi to capital city Dhaka was unavoidable. The Group therefore decided to participate in the process of industrialization in the places where from marketing, transportation would be easier. Generation of income & employment will be evident and in doing so shall pay taxes to the Government.
