slam brings substantial experience to his new role. Having studied in the USA, he has spent the last seven years working exclusively in the poultry sector, initially as a Director of one of the country's largest integrations, and more recently establishing his own company to supply a comprehensive range of equipments specifically created to serve the needs of the entire sector - from hatcheries to integrations throughout the country.
"With a population of 150 million, Bangladesh is a dynamic, fast-growing market," says Islam, "well served now by GPS suppliers, breeding and parentstock companies and commercial broiler producers".
"Both the domestic and export markets are expanding rapidly for broilers, meat products and hatching eggs - so much so, that the Government has recognised this as one of, if not the fastest growing industries in the country and has pledged its support to the development of foreign markets."
In this buoyant climate, Islam believes there is a burgeoning market for Pas Reform's new Smart™ hatchery technology. "Since Smart hatchery systems first appeared in Bangladesh earlier this year," he says, "a combination of highly visible marketing and a clear commitment to the poultry sector here have made a very positive impression - and I believe there are genuine opportunities for this highly efficient and innovative single-stage incubation system to develop significant market share as early as 2006. There is quite simply nothing to compare on the market today. Smart suits this market and its high demands very well."
Mr. Bart Aangenendt, president of Pas Reform, is delighted with the appointment of Mr. Islam. "Zahidul knows and understand this market extremely well," he says, "and I believe we have found an ideal partner with whom to take our ambitions for this very exciting marketing forward."
