Pioneers in plastic pipes Zaka Sons (Pak Arab) leading since 1950 Muhammad Shoaib, CEO

There has been tremendous growth in the industrial, commercial, government projects, housing sector and public amenities in Pakistan. This growth needs pipelines to convey water and sewerage for infrastructure development works and to protect telecommunication and electrical cables. Zaka Sons (Pak Arab) was formed with the aim of producing full range of Plastic pipes & Fittings to meet these needs. We are engaged in pipe industry since 1950. As we have great experience in this field, we understand user’s needs of pipes and fittings. We believe that every user should have the right to buy products having following features:


  • Durability
  • Easy installation
  • Easy repair and maintenance
  • Economical price
  • Long life


To fulfill above features, we introduced complete system of PVC pipes and fittings first time in Pakistan in 1998 according to American standard ASTM 1785 and D-2241 SDR series for drinking water and sewerage lines respectively. We started their production in 2003. At that time people was used to deal with GI (galvanized iron) pipe and fittings for drinking water lines and asbestos pipes and cast iron pipes for sewerage lines. Because of their unique features, use of PVC pipes and fittings grew very fast during the last decade. Another milestone of Zaka Sons (Pak Arab) is production of CPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) pipes and fittings in year 2005. Our pipes could bear the flow of water up to 93° C, generally used for hot water supplies in industries where flow of acids takes place. Zaka Sons was then the only manufacturer in Pakistan manufacturing CPVC pipes and fittings. To cater the needs of very high pressure water lines able to deliver huge quantities of water, Zaka Sons (Pak Arab) launched PVC pipes of ½” inch to 24” diameter in 2008 according to British standard (BS-3505). These pipes replaced MS (Mild Steel) pipes which are difficult to install and repair and maintain. Here flow of water may also be disturbed after some time because of rusting, corrosion and other issues. We are a trend setter in Pakistan. Our tremendous growth in PVC industry has motivated hundreds of other manufacturer to establish their factories all over Pakistan. And this initiative of Zaka Sons (Pak Arab) has increased employment level all over Pakistan. As we said we take initiative in many works as needed by customers. We have also started manufacturing of PE (Poly ethylene) pipes for huge water supply lines and we have capacity to manufacture pipes of 20 mm to 710 mm diameter. We are also working on production of large diameter PE corrugated pipes. We are also manufacturing pipes for chilled water supply and noise free pipes which will not allow external temperature to affect the internal temperature of water flow and also reduce the noise rising from the flow of water in sewerage system respectively. We do not compromise in quality of our products. Quality of our end products is high because we use high quality raw material. One of the core raw materials PVC resin is purchased from Engro Polymer & Chemicals Ltd, the only manufacturer of PVC resin in Pakistan. For CPVC pipes and fittings we import CPVC compound. We have skilled labor and qualified staff as well as all imported machineries that add value to our brands.

The UPVC spiral technology pipes called PAKARAB SPIRO pipes our latest piping technology which can be used for infrastructure like sewage, drainage, rainwater, gravitational conduits and irrigation canals. These pipes can eliminate the challenges we are facing with conventional materials like RCC and GRP.

PAK ARAB UPVC SPIRO pipe can be produced on site therefore no storage space; no extra transportation cost and no heavy equipments are required. Also it has desired length like (manhole to manhole). Chances of leakages are reduced because of lesser joints. The pipe can be produced in sizes from 200mm to 3000mm diameter.

The initiative worked out of our products for their unmatched quality stood us out of the rest & we stringently focus on excellence in quality, swift and prompt services and adhere to standards to satisfy the need of our customers. The claim of market leadership established and further strengthened when in an unprejudiced census the consumers of Pakistan, we claimed & reckoned the brand “PAK ARAB” as “absolutely complete system from Source to Destination” for any project.


The above facts prove our claim of being the market leader, trend setter and pioneers in plastic pipe industry in Pakistan. We believe that only quality of product is the base of success and we do not compromise in quality. That is why although, prices of our products are relatively higher than products of other brands, and our sale graph is continuously moving upward. We will welcome any query from our honorable clients as well as all consulting engineers, architects and builders. And we request them all too always suggest quality Pak Arab products to their clients.
