Message from the Chairman


Associated Engineers & Drillers Ltd. (AED) was founded in 1960 to tackle the water supply needs of Bangladesh. Over the years we have gained strength by expanding our range of business activities as well as by investing heavily in our core business. We have expanded into the supply of water-related products, jute yarn manufacturing as well as construction, and completed a broad spectrum of projects for a growing list of clients.

Nawab Abdul Malek Jute Mills Ltd. was privatized and commenced operations under the current management in April 1979. Over time it has become one of the best jute mills in the world. We are justly proud of the reputation we have earned for efficient, quality driven production, as well as our strong sense of business ethics. Over time, we have chosen to base our growth on technical expertise fueled by a reservoir of dynamic, efficient and experienced personnel.

We invite you to examine the levels of expertise and services that our employees are prepared to offer. Our commitment to our customers is that we will always offer high quality goods with integrity.
