Our Corporate Heritage

Our Heritage

The Lakson Group (“Lakson”) was established in 1954 and is one of the largest business groups in Pakistan.

Today we manage companies that are industry leaders in their respective sectors including agri-business, call centres, consumer non-durables, fast food, financial services, media, paper and board, printing and packaging, surgical instruments, technology (data-networking, BPO and software) and travel.

  • In our successful exit from the tobacco industry the Sponsors earned the same price for the controlling stake as minority shareholders.

  • The Sponsors of Lakson have been managing 5 publicly listed companies and several private companies (some of which are Joint Ventures with Fortune 500 companies) for over 50 years.

  • Lakson has a 100% ownership of Pakistan’s second largest media company that publishes the Daily Express, Express Tribune (in partnership with the International New York Times) and the Express News broadcast channels.
