R. K. Holdings is not just a company; it’s a journey of a lifetime descending into generations.
A journey of hard work and undying efforts, of aspiring values and principles and of consistent input, it is a journey that initiated with the motivation and concentrated efforts of a man with a vision, a man with the strongest resolve, Mian Riaz Ahmad Kashif.
Mian Riaz Ahmad Kashif began with pioneering Sartaj Group of Industries in 1950s. His commendable leadership qualities and clear vision along with a cohesive effort by his brothers, Mian Mehraj-ud-din, Mian Taj-ud-din and Mian Fazal-e-Ahmad led to the emergence of Sartaj Group of Industries, one of the most renowned industrialist groups of the time. His objective approach and strong faith in unity led the group to the pinnacle of glory with Sartaj Flour Mill, Sartaj Ice & Cold Storage, Sartaj Steel Mills and Sartaj Steel Furnaces encapsulating the markets in Lahore, Karachi, Abbottabad and other cities of Pakistan.
The group remained integrated until 1989 when it was time for the second generation to explore new dimensions and opportunities in the competitive market. The Sartaj legacy descended into children of all four brothers, and thereupon, in 1989, RK Holdings was launched by sons of Mian Riaz Ahmad Kashif bearing the lamentable and irreplaceable loss of their beloved father passing away in October 1989.

In 2004, the accidental death of Mian Humayun Riaz left the family devastated. Thereupon, Mian Haroon Riaz Lucky and Mian Suleman Riaz held the reigns and Mian Haroon Riaz Lucky took charge as the Chief Executive of RK Holdings. With their exceptional confidence and intelligence they further expanded the RK Empire by launching Fairy’s Fashion Pvt.
