Company IntroductionEngro Fertilizers’ journey began in 1964 when Esso set up a Urea plant with an annual capacity of 173,000 tons after a successful agreement signed with Government of Pakistan. By 1991, Exxon had divested their fertilizer business globally, leading to Pakistan’s first management buy-out in partnership with local and international financial institutions. The Company was renamed Engro Chemicals Pakistan Limited. In 2009, after a de-merger, a fully owned subsidiary Engro Fertilizers Limited (EFERT), was formed.
Engro Fertilizers has a complete portfolio of agricultural inputs, ranging from manufactured and imported fertilizers, specialty fertilizers, seeds and pesticides and extending to agricultural services, including a pan-Pakistan logistics and warehousing services.
