LALA group of industries has played a major role in the private sector by adding value to the industries of natural and man-made fibers. Since its inception, Lala group of industries has grown from a simple trading house into a premier business group. Today it is a recognized name for quality; quality in products, ethics and in business relations with both suppliers and the customers. Vendors and customers both have full credence in the organization and take pride in working with Lala. Our business today involves manufacturing as well as trading in both local and international markets.
Presently, Pakistan’s textile sector is underdeveloped as most production units are cottage industries or small/medium industrial units. As a result, many products in the market are of substandard quality. We are one of the pioneers in adapting world class latest technology in Pakistan’s textile industry as we understand the need for modern equipment and processes which lead to long term sustainable growth. As a result, Lala products are widely recognized for their reliability and high standards of production. In order to cater to its growing business interests, the Lala group is divided into 7 sub companies.
The global textile market today is worth $400 Billion with Pakistan being one of the largest exporters of textile products in Asia. According to recent statistical analysis, Pakistan textile industry contributes more than 60 percent to the country’s total exports. Lala group is playing a leading role in improving Pakistan’s economy by exporting textile products all across the globe, especially to USA, UK, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
The roots of LALA date back to the 1940s, when Mr. H. Tar Muhammad Lala laid a cornerstone for Lala Traders in Sukkur, in 1947. A true visionary, whose dedication helped the company evolve in one of the largest textile groups in Pakistan. Till date, the trading house provides textile products to Sukkur and the surrounding areas of Sindh, thus has earned a solid repute in the province.
Lala Traders made a solid mark in the local market, and the time came for the company to expand its business into the international market, for which ‘Lala Enterprises’ was established in 1972 at 4-Cochingwala Market, Luxmidas Street Karachi. Today, Lala Enterprises export textiles to all the foreign countries in Europe, US and the Middle East.
In 1980, the executives of the Lala Group decided to establish Asif Textile at 4-Cochingwala Market, Luxmidas Street Karachi, which is another export house with an identity of its own and is widely regarded as one of the best export houses in the country.
