This tradition of excellence started back in1960, when Mian Abdul Rasheed (late) floated the idea of manufacturing textile weaving machines accessories in Pakistan. Pak Shuttle Company was his brainchild and is now the largest manufacturer and exporter of textile weaving machine accessories in Pakistan.
The idea of Pak Shuttle Company got much appreciation and production of high quality accessories for textile weaving machines relieved the local textile industry because of the higher costs of imports of the textile parts from the US, Japan and Germany. Along with shuttles, the company started manufacturing wooden and plastic pirns and bobbins followed by Laminated Picking sticks and Side Levers. The production set-up and technical skills were achieved from Japan for the absolute perfection and products were of same standards as of Europe or Japan.
The compressed wooden blocks were imported from Germany, United Kingdom, and the USA earlier, but in 1977 the company erected its own wood compressing plant and was the first wood compressing plant of its type in Asia.
The company started its export in 1978. After capturing the domestic market the company got much appreciation and very positive feedback. It was this positive feedback that the company established its offices in different countries.
