Few words about us
Pesco Products (Peshawar Soap & Chemicals Company) is one of the most respected and renowned business houses of India. Started around eighty years back by Lala Bishan Dass Sabharwal with a soap factory in Peshawar (Now in Pakistan), Later on joined by Lala Harbans Lal Sabharwal & Lala Ram Prakash Sabharwal. The group has since diversified into a wide variety of business areas.
The Brand was registered in 1935, when the then His Highness “Maharaja Bhupinder Singh”, the great grandson of Maharaja Narinder Singh of Patiala (In Punjab) invited Lala Bhisan Dass Sabharwal to make a specialised soap for the soldiers of the Sikh Regiment who participated in war on behalf of British Rule in the different parts of world. This led to the development of Kesh Nikhar Soap - the two minutes Hair Wash Solution exclusively for the use of soldiers. Since the contents of Kesh Nikhar Soap was completely Herbal & Natural it was made available for the general public as well by 1940s.
Setting up the Soap factory was for Lala Bishan Das a combination of his talents as an industrialist and his conviction in the power of swadesi to transform the country’s fortunes & Health-Wellness. At that time, there were barely any soap factories in all of India, which made his new venture an answer to a national need. The Company faced a huge complication, when Two-Third of it's resourses were lost with the Partition of India in 1947. But Today, Pesco Products has a leading presence with diversified interest in the growing Infrastructure sector including Real Estate; and FMCG. Peshawar Soap and Chemicals Company, the Group’s flagship company, was set up in November 1935.
