Company Introduction

Engro
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
