Pak Shuttle Company

For over Fifty year, we have produced high-quality wooden accessories for the weaving mills and have developed technologies to meet the challenging requirements of the local and international market.

Keeping alive the art of conventional weaving.


Incorporated in 1964 by the visionary Mr. Mian Abdul Rasheed (late), Pak Shuttle stands as the prominent brand in the Pakistan power loom industry, specializing in Textile Weaving Shuttles and accessories. Its significant contribution to meeting the surging demand for textile weaving wooden shuttles and accessories during the textile sector’s boom in Pakistan from the 1960s onwards cannot be overstated. Pak Shuttle has remained the largest manufacturer of weaving shuttles in Pakistan, a feat that not only reduced the industry’s reliance on imported, expensive shuttles but also fostered self-sufficiency in Pakistani Textile Engineering.

Our History

This tradition of excellence started back in1960 when Mian Abdul Rasheed (late) floated the idea of manufacturing textile weaving machine and accessories in Pakistan. Pak Shuttle Company was his brainchild and is now the largest manufacturer and exporter of textile weaving machine accessories in Pakistan. The idea of Pak Shuttle Company got much appreciation and the production of high-quality accessories for textile weaving machines relieved the local textile industry because of the higher costs of imports of textile parts from the US, Japan, and Germany. Along with shuttles, the company started manufacturing wooden and plastic pirns and bobbins followed by Laminated Picking sticks and Side Levers. The production set-up and technical skills were achieved in Japan for absolute perfection and products were of the same standards as of Europe or Japan.

Pak Shuttle – A Journey Through Time

The origins of Pak Shuttle trace back to a family of skilled craftsmen in pre-partition Amritsar, India, known for their exceptional hand-loom craftsmanship. Following the partition, the family relocated to Gujranwala, Pakistan, with Mr. Abdul Rasheed spearheading the vision of industrializing Textile Machinery. In 1964, Pak Shuttle Company (Pvt) Limited was founded in the vicinity of Industrial Estate, G. T. Road, Gujranwala, equipped with advanced Japanese machinery for shuttle production. The company aimed to meet domestic demand and ventured into overseas markets.

Once, the compressed densified wooden blocks were imported from Europe, mainly from the UK, the pivotal moment came in 1977 with the establishment of the largest wood compressing plant in Asia, enabling Pak Shuttle to compress the wooden blocks domestically.

During the 1970s, Pak Shuttle secured government tenders to supply Textile Weaving Shuttles to Sri Lanka and Iraq, marking its entry into the export market. And our export portfolio has been increasing ever since.
