Our Founder & History


Haji Hanif Dehelvi

Our founder, Haji Hanif Dehelvi, came from humble beginnings. After the PAK-INDO separation of 1947, he migrated to Pakistan from a place called “Pahar-Gunj'' located in Delhi, India. With whatever little money he had saved from various small ventures at the beginning, he started a small sanitary products business in Marriot Road, Karachi. 

One day, an engineer came to his shop with an inquiry of a simple 2/2 way solenoid valve made by CKD-Japan and thus peaked his interest in industrial fluid control components and as a result, he went to Japanese embassy to contact the company and gain sold distributorship which is still active today! The business venture that he would start will pass down three generations into his family!

After many years of struggle, he founded Industrial Equipment in 1976. Since the inception of our company, our founder has introduced many well known brands in Pakistan, which are still popular such as KITZ, TLV, KLINGER,VELAN, CKD, ECONOSTO, MARAN, VALVOSIDER, JUMO, WIKA, SANG-A etc.  

He passed down the same qualities that made him a great man down to his sons and grandsons until his last breath on 20th June, 2014.
