Paknam Manufacturing Company, previously known as “Snow”, was established in spring 1962 by a group of experts in detergent industry in an area of 4800 square meters in Sa’adat-Abad district of Tehran and began its operation as one of the first laundry powder producing factories in the Middle East. The first product of the Snow Company “Toofan Laundry Powder” was released to the market a year after.
Improving the machineries qualitatively and quantitatively in 1972 and promoting the workforce, the Snow Company made a mark by 9 times increasing its annual capacity of laundry powder production peaking 5,000 tons per year.
Within the period 1981-1988 and despite all the sanctions following the Islamic Revolution, the company’s production of the laundry powder surpassed even its nominal capacity and reached 14,000 tons per year. In the same period the name of the company was changed to “Paknam”.
Considering the health level of the society and by the start of Iran’s Construction Period in early 1990s, Paknam in collaboration with the experienced European engineers and applying the most modern technologies in laundry powder production industry, established a new factory with a nominal capacity of 120,000 tons per year in a 22-hectare area in Buin Zahra region in vicinity of Ghazvin. The construction of the factory and the installation of the European machineries took 5 years and finally in spring 1995, Paknam reinitiated its activity as one of the most modern factories manufacturing detergent and hygienic products in the region.
