Our Specific Projects Department

With years of experience gathered through our dedicated service to valuable customers, we have updated and equipped our Projects Division to cater to the modern demands in the field of electricity. This unit is staffed with qualified Engineers with proven competency, who keeps themselves abreast with the new developments in electrical technology. As we have proved in the past with our dynamic management we could gear ourselves to undertake and accomplish local and international projects with whatever complexity and magnitude. This unit undergoes a continuous process of capacity building to meet the contingencies created by Govt. policy requirements and fluctuating electrical contractor requirements.

Our Technical Support Department

This is a ‘client based’ service department who value customer confidence above everything else. The academics and the professionals in this Dept. are fully aware that their theories have to be interpreted in terms of ground realities to be acceptable in the practical context. The integrity of this Department is paramount, in that they often recommend to customers, accessories that are not dealt with by our company, where such recommendations are in the interest of the customer. However when such recommendations are made, customers are also apprised of the limitations of such accessories, leaving the choice with customer. The advice given by this Department to our customers and potential customers is invariably ‘free of charge’ as the Company values customer confidence above short term financial gains.

Our After Sales Service

The Company has recognized the importance of backing up its sales with an effective after sales service, as the field of electricity is highly technical and therefore, the customers would opt to have a package of technical service with the reputed material they purchase. To this end, we have strengthened our After Sales Dept. utilizing the valuable experience accumulated over the years. As electrical items once sold are not exchangeable, we provide a suitable warranty on our goods to overcome this situation. We are fully aware that in our trade that it is the ‘end service’ rather than a product that matters to the customer at the end.

“Having considered all this, Empire Trading Agency (Pvt) Ltd is an organization that is customer oriented and believes in the reality that the test of any organization’s success depends on the extent to which it dedicates itself to the ‘mutually beneficial course of action’ with its valued customers.”
