Peoples Ceramic Industries Ltd. pioneered the manufacturing of porcelain tableware’s in Bangladesh in 1962. The company was established by late Mr Ansar Uddin Ahmed, a Civil Engineer with a view to improving the lives of ordinary people who could not afford to eat off a ceramic plate. European Style tableware’s were chosen for fabrication as they were popular at home & that would create an opportunity to export in due course; PCI tableware’s were welcomed in Holland & United Kingdom in 1982. In the initial years, along with basic house wares items, Tea Cups & Saucers suitable for restaurant use were also fabricated. Marketing the quantity produced posed a big problem & thereafter Late Mr Ahmed opened doors to market them in Pakistan competing against 2 factories there. It was an instant success owing to Hard Grade porcelain products of PCI. Later Institutional products were also added to cater the Hotels and Restaurants. The company always focused on adopting Appropriate Technology and sourcing quality raw materials (from around the world) to keep product cost at a minimum; also machinery and equipments were constantly upgraded to maintain competitive edge. In 2009 company initiated decal printing starting with “Logo” and by 2012 had a full fledged automatic decal printing facility. Peoples Ceramic followed the vision of its founder at every step to provide good quality products to its customers, create a better future for themselves and the nation.
