The family's first activities in doing business came from Mr. Shabbir Ahmed Jumani, who held lands but then entered the trading and commerce industry in the early 1950's soon after the creation of Pakistan. He obtained the dealer and distributorship of three oil marketing companies operating in Pakistan namely ESSO, PNO, and Caltex and was supplying oil all over Pakistan through a fleet of 150 tank lorries. Besides the oil distribution business, he was also involved in general trading, bus body making and building and civil construction business. The initiative of Mr. Shabbir Ahmed Jumani was continued on by his son Mr. Tansveer A. Jumani, a Pakistani entrepreneur on his return to the country after staying abroad in the UK and the USA for over 19 years. He completed his under graduate and post graduate studies and obtained M.A. and MBA degrees in California, USA. His return to Pakistan saw him establish a Textile Spinning unit in Nooriabad, near Karachi, which was the basis of forming Anoud Group. He further diversified the composition of Anoud Group by setting up a Power Generation unit and a LPG marketing company. His formation of Anoud Group and his involvement contributes to his vision for continued growth and expansion in diverse industries and services. Today Anoud Group also has interests outside of Pakistan. The group is setting up Power Generation units and an LPG extraction unit in the UAE. It also comprises a real estate portfolio based in the UAE and Europe. Anoud Group continues to increase its operations in Pakistan as well as overseas. One of its new projects being set up is a port facility in Port Qasim to import various energy supplies to meet the growing demand of energy in Pakistan. Other undertakings include an oil and gas exploration facility to explore resources within Pakistan. Anoud Group looks on to further opportunities in Pakistan and abroad to keep growing with the concept of diversity expansion.
