Polygal Habib Gum Pakistan
This production facility was built in 1993 in the Export Processing Zone of Karachi.
The location – in another important source of raw materials and very close to the international port – provides almost ideal conditions for the affordable, flexible and quick processing of customer orders. This is particularly important when taking into account the increasing significance of our Asian sales markets.
