Who We Are

Home » Who We Are


Standing firm for over five decades, Taj was founded by the late Sher Muhammad Shaikh in 1965. What started with a small fuel station at Ranipur – a small city of Sindh province, has now phenomenally progressed into one, big corporation offering its services to the whole nation. Over the course of years, our thirst for innovation and the passion to reach out to the community at larger levels has made us venture into new endeavors instead of following a singular path. Though the beginnings were quite modest but our perseverance, unendurable hard work and drive for progress has led us to where Taj stands today; a huge and renowned brand name in the corporate world.


Starting off as single retailing outlet with a daily sale of about 1000 liters, today, Taj Petroleum has expanded into a network of fuel stations coursing throughout the nation. Never falling short of ideas and aspiration, we decided to experiment business at altogether different altitudes. Consequently, Taj Corporation is now not only in oil marketing but has extended and established firm footing in the world of food and hospitality industries. We are proud to be working as a multi-service corporation having a wide array of brands with leading shares in the domestic markets of Pakistan.
