We basically started our business with M/s Montanari Giulio & Csrl Italy, in the initial stage we were only importing containers, about 4 containers to 5 containers a year, and distributing in Pakistan for various Lift Installers, we have a very good reputation in the Market and our supply is in all the major cities of Pakistan as well as to each and every company Selling lift in Pakistan.
After doing whole sale business with our Italian Companies, we diverted our imports to Savera of Spain, where we started importing Guide Rails, in the late 2001 the Turkish Market emerged and with a low rate of American dollars, we started importing from Turkey, besides keeping Italian products with us, but our imports from Spain had completely finished due to the higher value of Euro.
In the present stage we still have our Gear Motors coming in from Italy, M/s Faer and M/s Montanari, but overall the sales of Turkish products have fallen, due to the emerging Chinese market, at the present stage we are only importing Gear Motors from Italy due to its high quality, but aside from that 100% of our products come from China.
We are presently importing all lift product from different Chinese Companies, after tracking down the whole sale manufactures, like guide Rails from Zoyo Elevators, Gear Motors from Nova China, Montanari Italy, Complete lift from China Concord Elevator, Reed Switch from SMC Turkey, Door from SMC Turkey, Auto Door from X-itrust China, Cabins from China Safe Elevator Doors after the FTA = Free Trade Agreement between China and Pakistan, duties which used to exceed about 40% have been exempted, thus opening a bigger Chinese Market for Pakistan.
Beside that we have also started manufacturing some product locally and installing locally fabricated and completely imported Italian, Chinese and Turkish Lifts in Pakistan. At the present Stage three are only 3 main Stockiest of Lift and Lift Parts in Pakistan and we are one of them. We presently have about 5 Installations Projects in Karachi, Hyderabad and Colgate Palmolive Pakistan PVT Ltd. Kotri.
