Introduction

Packages Limited started operating in May 1957 with a paid up capital of Rs. 4.94 million as a joint venture between the Ali group and Akerland & Rausing of Sweden. Initially, Packages produced cartons for the cigarette, tea, confectionery, soap, pharmaceutical products and other consumer products. These cartons were produced from paper and board supplied from mills in Chittacong, Khulna, Charsadda and Peshawar. However the quality and quantity of paper and board supplied was inadequate. Over the years, the company continued to enhance its facilities to meet the growing demand of packaging products. Additional capital was raised from sponsors, International Finance Corporation and from the public in making the total paid up capital to Rs. 31 million in 1965. As a first step, Packages commissioned its own paper mill in 1968 having production capacity of 24,000 tons of paper & paper board based on waste paper, agricultural waste, wheat straw and kahi grass. As the demand continued to grow, it led the company to expand and by the end of 1998 its annual capacity was increased to 50,000 tons of paper & board and corresponding converting ability. Since 1982, Packages Limited has a joint venture in Tetra Pak Pakistan Limited with Tetra Pak International to manufacture paper for liquid food packaging and to sell Tetra Pak packaging equipment. Packages Limited has a large workshop. This workshop is capable of making, repairing and replacing the damaged parts. The RD & Control Department were also established to ensure the quality and standard of the products. Starting with a work force of 500 workers, now Packages Limited is having 2674 employees. In this regard, a separate Personnel Department is there, to look after the problems of the workers. Today Packages Limited is considered to be a leader in Packaging field in Asia. Packages Limited has established an Effluent Treatment Plant because it is concerned about the environment and wants to keep it clean. Packages have completed the balancing, modernization, replacement and expansion program, which began in 1994. This has enabled the company to minimize capacity constraints and improve quality to meet local and foreign competition as well as improve its environmental protection facilities. Main operations
