Beximco, a corporate venture which has revived the industrial sector in a country like Bangladesh, which is still categorized as a developing country, has yet again undertaken a new venture. The giant business venture has been granted the license to launch DTH services in the country, essentially to make a foray into providing an experience of high-definition TV viewing for its citizens. Beximco Group is the largest business venture in Bangladesh, spearheaded by the iconic Salman F Rahman. The company, with the backing of Rahman’s expertise evolved to become the country’s largest private conglomerate from a mere trading company.
The company stands on the pillar of its mission to “taking Bangladesh to the world”. Abiding by its mission, the company has multiplied in terms of its venture in textiles, marine food, pharmaceuticals, information and communication technology, ceramics, financial services and more. The company’s products are a brand in the country and meet international standards in terms of their quality. It houses more than 48,000 employees with recorded total revenue of around $ 834 million in the year 2010.
The company reached yet another milestone by signing the shareholder agreement with the General Satellite to launch the country’s first ever DTH operator. The agreement for the joint venture between the two companies licensed for providing DTH services in the country was signed by the Director of Foreign Broadcasting Projects Department, S.L. Dolgopolsky. The motive of this multi-million corporate company behind this joint venture is to enable its countrymen experience the splendor of high quality and high-definition TV viewing. The new quality TV viewing will match the quality picture displayed by the range of digital technologies like TATA Sky, who have already made it big in other Asian countries.
Besides class-TV viewing, Beximco is driven by its philanthropic mission to enable access to TV in the regions with considerably minimal reach of cable TV and terrestrial TV. This is another leap that the company has made to stride its countrymen towards the path of growth and success. This achievement has been prominently acknowledged by both the common natives as well as the government authority of the country. With this service, the general public have easy access to popular channels aired across the world and stay in touch with the world’s most happening and breaking news. The service will contribute significantly to improve people’s quality of life through entertainment and infotainment. The quality of the picture and multiple features to be offered in this service will make TV viewing experience delightful for the natives of the country.
