TEXT: Our Story
In the late 1980s, the Government of Pakistan extended an invitation to the corporate sector of the country, urging them to establish industrial units in the Gadoon Amazai area of District Swabi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The objective behind this initiative was to eliminate the widespread cultivation of poppy plants and provide an alternative source of employment. Recognizing this as a corporate social responsibility, the Yunus Brothers Group (YBG) actively participated in this noble endeavor by collaborating with the Government. In 1988, they laid the foundations of Gadoon Textile Mills Limited (GTML). Despite the Government withdrawing the incentives for setting up industrial units in 1991, GTML continued its operations.
GTML pursued a sustainable strategy guided by the principles of eradicating poverty and eliminating hunger. In line with this vision, the Company achieved further expansion and growth. It established an additional production facility in Karachi and subsequently merged with Fazal Textile Mills Limited (FTML). Through these unwavering efforts and dedication to society, GTML has emerged as one of the largest spinning units in Pakistan.
