What is now known as Nagina Group began as a single company, Nagina Mills Limited, established by Shaikh Inam Ellahi and Ashan Ellahi Shaikh in 1967. Focusing on the production of cotton yarn, it grew with the acquisition of tanneries, factories that produced shoes and ice, and Pakistan’s largest jute mill. These assets were lost, however, when East Pakistan separated from the Pakistani Federation to become Bangladesh in 1971.
The company reformed in 1971 as the Nagina Group, consolidating its assets under a single umbrella organization. The group currently manages Nagina Cotton Mills Limited, Ellcot Spinning Mills Limited, and Prosperity Weaving Mills Limited. Together, the facilities hold approximately 100,000 modern spindles, and produce forty-eight million pounds of carded and combed yarn annually.
Nagina Group also operates three private power plants to provide electricity for its mills. The installed capacity of its generators is 30.57 Megawatts. Excess energy is sold to other industrial facilities in the area.
Nagina Group has an ambitious 5 year strategic objective. This objective includes expanding into logistics, consolidating position in energy production, and opening a 6 star beach resort in Karachi.
Nagina Cotton Mills Limited (Winner of Forbes Global Award “Best under a Billion-200”) is the mother company of the Group, established in 1967.
