Heart of Company Management Teams

Founder Chairman

May Allah stand guard over us and our country “Bangladesh” as a whole. As the Chairman & Managing Director, I would like to give a brief history of the organization, ‘SICHO GROUP OF COMPANIES’. It came into existence in the year 1968 and by now it has been transformed as a group of companies (SICHO GROUP) which comprises of 4 (Four) organization having individual entity. By the passage of time, the company has gained vast knowledge in the business management and technical know-how which has made this organization an ideal house for C&F, Stevedoring, Transportation and Pilot House Logistics.


Apart from the C&F House, this organization is engaged in the manufacture Water Crafts, Boats & Barges. Besides its export- import business through trading house, the organization has diversified its business to some extent towards agro industry. These all are now contributing much for the socio-economic development of the people of Bangladesh.


The Consortium of S.I Chowdhury & Co. Ltd. and Saiful Mainul & Co. Ltd., has made a good impact in the business arena due to their strive against all the ODDS, arena by dint of striving hard against all the ODDS. As a result, SICHO is now treated as one of the fastest growing business house in the country.


I feel privileged to credit SICHO’s success to all our well-wishers, business clients, strategic partners & stake holders. I pray “May Allah bless them all, friends & relatives”.
