Sajjid Minhas, a third-generation manufacturer of farm equipment, tractor equipment, and farm tools at Murshid Farm Industries, faced the challenge of expanding his family business beyond its conventional customer base. In 2007, Sajjid discovered Alibaba.com, the world’s largest B2B e-commerce trading platform, and realized its potential as an opportunity to take his family business (Murshid Farm) to the next level. Through Alibaba.com, Murshid Farm Industries was able to showcase its products to global audience, resulting in a significant increase in sales and revenue. This success story is a testament to the power of innovation and the role of technology in driving business growth.

During first year on Alibaba.com, the company generated $60,000 in revenue through sales, and their sales have impressively surged by 300 percent since then. This remarkable progress is a testament to Murshid Farm Industries’ shrewd business acumen and the tremendous potential of leveraging the Alibaba.com platform to drive business growth.
By showcasing their products on the platform, Sajjid took advantage of the online training courses offered by Alibaba.com to improve his business skills and knowledge. The courses cover a wide range of topics, from digital marketing to supply chain management, and are designed to help businesses optimize their operations and stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing business environment.

Sajjid Minhas’s decision to embrace the possibilities of e-commerce and partner with Alibaba.com as an enabler has enabled the company to achieve its goal of providing high-quality farm equipment to customers worldwide.
As a trusted and reliable supplier of high-quality farm equipment and tools, Murshid Farm Industries has expanded its customer base beyond Pakistan and reached customers in different parts of the world, including Europe, Gulf nations, and Africa. The company’s commitment to customer satisfaction, combined with the efficiency of Alibaba.com, earned it a reputation as a global leader in the industry.
