In 1986, GQ Ball Pen Industries Ltd, took a great leap by becoming a public limited company. Along the way the company expanded from ball pen industry to other market sectors of Bangladesh such as; PP Woven Sacks, Disposable items, Food grade plastic products, Mosquito coils etc.
In 1992 GQ started food manufacturing with its sister concern GQ Foods Limited and launched different types of corn based snacks. As expected it captured the food market as well in a short period of time with its unique and fingerlicking flavors.
In 1994, GQ expanded itself into PP Woven Bag Industry in order to continue its journey towards diversified business market. The company also entered into a technical collaboration with Malaysia and initiated it’s first ever joint venture named Maladesh International (Pvt.), another sister concern of GQ Ball Pen Industry, producing highly effective mosquito coil.
