The parent company, The Imperial Electric Company (Pvt.) Ltd., was established in 1931 and has been involved in trading of electrical goods. Soon after the creation of Pakistan, the needs for import substitution was felt and the sponsors of the parent company made the decision to establish a small manufacturing unit for electrical goods.
In 1951, a very modest beginning was made by setting up a small facility located in the basement of the offices of The Imperial Electric Company (Pvt.) Ltd., for the production of electrical accessories. With single minded initiative and efforts of Late Mr. Ataur Rehman (the former Managing Director), the facilities were continuously upgraded and a full fledged facility was established in Lahore, Pakistan by 1954 under the same name of Electrical Equipment Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (EMCO). The first comprehensive Insulator Manufacturing Plant was in operation with the active participation, know-how and machinery coming from Japan and France.
Keeping pace with the ever increasing and diversified demand of Insulators for national utilities and electrical industries in Pakistan, it was decided in 1965 to expand the facilities to produce all types of insulators including those required for extra high tension lines.
"To become the company of first choice through innovation, commitment to quality, economy, reliability and by meeting the expectations of our stakeholders."
"Emco, the pioneer of ceramics in pakistan, is committed to producing high quality ceramic products, which include, high tension porcelain insulators, at emco we fairmly believe in full satisfaction of our customers, employees and all other stake holders.
