OUR GROUP HISTORY
The Group of Tabani’s dates back to 1885 where it made its humble beginning under the name and style of M/s. H.A Ganny Brothers in Rangoon, Burma led by the present Chairman’s grandfather whose trade with Japan and the European countries established a reputation which is diligently upheld even today. This fact could very well be evidenced from the book, “TWENTIETH CENTURY IMPRESSIONS OF BURMA” on page 331 published by Great Britain Publishing Company Limited 1910.
The Shifting to former East Pakistan and then to Pakistan left the family undeterred and hard work multiplied their achievements each time. The assets of an unblemished reputation for honesty and integrity are jealously guarded and upheld at every juncture. The roots of the present group are based on dedication, honesty and a will to achieve.
Since the four decades,3rd and now 4th generation of the Tabani Family took charge of Group under the ambitious leadership of the late President M. Ebrahim Tabani, worked hard to set-up a strong manufacturing base in textile and leather garment products and Building Construction to promote development projects , Supplies to Pak Steel Mill; Pakistan Railways, Electric Energy Projects in Hydel, Thermal,Coal, Renewable Energy etc
After the demise of Mr. Ebrahim Tabani, the responsibility was taken over by Elder Son Mr Adnan Tabani, who is the current Chairman of the Manal International and Manal Global; and shouldered his brother and Cousin Mr. Umair Tabani (Vice Chairman) & Mr. Kashan Tabani (Chairman) to have a firsthand pulse of the market, setting forth the target and therefore to enhance export trade, there was a need to have international market network, particularly in view of the rapidly changing regional corporate environment and the development of socio-economic and political conditions the world over. These challenging circumstances have led to the gradual opening of The Group of Tabani’s overseas offices / representations at more than half a dozen locations internationally. Presently, the Group has offices in Dubai,Sharjah, and representatives offices worldwide.
The Group of Tabani’s is contemplating for opening a few more offices to deal directly with new potential markets in order to pay more attention towards areas that are presently looked after by nearby branches particularly in African States and China. The Group’s growth is the result of efficient and quality services, for which it has received several national and international awards and commendations. Our goal is to introduce state-of-the art technologies and transfer of knowledge to meet the needs and challenges of the future.
