Established in 1954 and named after a river on whose banks the port city of Chittagong stands, Karnaphuli has with the ebb and flow of the past 58 years evolved and grown into a business house of diversified subsidiaries and activities.
Its growth has been characterized by a single minded and dedicated pursuit of excellence and a professional urge to be the market leader in everything it is involved and engaged in.
Helping to realize the above are independently managed companies manned by a pool of enterprising and progressive managers and executives, backed by strong finances, substantial resources and all the expertise, experience and knowledge you would expect from a business house that has been in existence for the almost six decades.
Not surprisingly perhaps, Karnaphuli holds the unique distinction of being the first company in Bangladesh to achieve ISO 9002 Certification.
Karnaphuli's range and scope of activities today span over a wide spectrum and covers, amongst other areas, the following: Port, Shipping and Logistics, Media and Publishing, Securities Trading, Health Care, Real Estate, Motor Cycles, Travel and Related Services, Global Satellite Television, General Insurance, Marketing and Distribution and Easyfly Express (Air Cargo).
