Al-Haj Yousuf Ali Fakir was the first to venture into the textile industry in the early 1960’s. His concern of a large yarn trading operation was based in the bustling business district of Narayanganj. In little time, the business grew exponentially in revenue and size and the highly ambitious entrepreneur expanded his trading operations countrywide adding jute, dyes and chemicals.
In 1980, the family saw the passing of a model father and a business pioneer of his generation. The stage was set for the new generation to take over. A rising opportunity in the readymade garment sector in the 1990’s was quickly seized by Fakir Maniruzzaman, son of Al-Haj Yousuf Ali Fakir and after gathering insight of multiple garment operations, in 1998 he founded Fakir Apparels, a vertically integrated garment manufacturing organization.
Today, Fakir Apparels Ltd. is an industry leader in the garment sector manufacturing with a wide range of products serving to a diverse portfolio of clients. As customer service is the core driving force of the organization, we have also committed ourselves to the future by successfully integrating environmental sustainability to our business philosophy. We believe that in an increasingly resource constrained world, sustainable business practices are critical to the creation of long-term value for all our stakeholders.
