After completing my graduation in Economics from University of Karachi in the year 1986, I started my career in DIN BROTHERS under the dynamic leadership of my father and founder of Din Brothers the late Mr. Zainuddin Karimbhoy who started this company on September 01, 1953. From my father’s vast experience and thorough knowledge of construction chemicals and waterproofing materials I gained a lot of information and experience in this field and gradually it became very interesting for me to develop innovative products in Pakistan market.
Few years later after joining the Company we became Exclusive Agent in Pakistan for U.K. based company named BCR Ltd, which had a full range of construction chemicals. My responsibilities were to look after the sales and marketing of BCR products all over Pakistan market, I also used to visit the sites so that I could have hands on experience of different materials, therefore at that time I felt that my career lays in this business only.
As the time passed and awareness for the need of advanced waterproofing and construction chemicals increased Din Brothers decided to introduce a full range of products and for this reason in the year 1996 the company introduced INDEX of Italy manufacturers of modified torch on membranes. In the year 2003, we were appointed Exclusive Agents in Pakistan for DWI, DERMABIT WATERPROOFING IND LTD., Saudi Arabia and HENKEL POLYBIT IND LTD., UAE for complete range of Construction Chemicals, Waterproofing Products, Modified Bituminious membranes and Liquids.
In the year 2009 we were appointed as Exclusive Agent in Pakistan for XYPEX Chemical Corporation, CANADA, global leaders in Waterproofing by Crystallization. Since then I have to visit frequently their offices and plants to assure quality and to gain latest techniques so that we can compete with our competitors in the market.
Now as being the CEO of DIN BROTHERS I look over all the imports, visits and meet international partners in world wide Exhibitions as well as sales and marketing. We have offices in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and UAE which I visit frequently. Our team comprises of highly qualified and experienced persons. We believe in continuous innovation and most important for us is our customers’ satisfaction.
