From Chairman’s Desk
Dreams are the one that keep us moving towards life. This compulsion to dream has driven me to build and to shape new ground-breaking projects every time.
Starting from construction and engineering, today Gemcon stands in versatile sectors of business. From seafood to retail, organics to education, jute to tea, sports to media- Gemcon has its successful presence in everywhere. All these have been possible because of the dedicated workforce who, over the years, have given me their complete support and dedication.
I have been always driven by two strong principles. First of all- do new things but do them properly, and secondly- do the things that will benefit the country and the people.
In keeping with the first principle, Gemcon is the first local company to participate in a Hydro-Carbon Habitat study, bring SPC Poles technology in Bangladesh, start 100% organically produced tea in a flat grounded tea garden and offer Liberal Arts education at university level.
In keeping with the second principle, we have started versatile business projects that created new employment opportunities for thousands of people. We established possibly the only large jute mill and tea garden in Panchagarh, the least developed and remote district of Bangladesh. We took social and environmental responsibility as our prime concern.
The journey of Gemcon continues to invest in this country and for its people, because I always believe in the future. Therefore, I found no reason for the new generation not to have faith and keep dreaming for a better future of the nation.
