Omega Industries has emerged from many years of excellence when the father of sitting directors started importing motorcycle parts from Japan. This was an era when auto industry players of Japan had entered the Pakistan’s motorcycle market. It was the great vision of Muhammad Usman Sheikh (late) to get into the business of auto-parts. Later when motorcycle market was developed in Pakistan, he started importing parts from Taiwan and China as well.
The business was expanded when another office in Lahore was opened and they started selling Japanese brand Yamaha. The business in Lahore developed successfully and turned into remarkable unit selling motorcycles and the whole-sale motorcycle parts. Later, the new generation took over and new thoughts were pumped in, who made this business a real success.
From 1995, Pakistan motorcycle market showed acceptance of Chinese origin motorcycles especially in the range of 70cc. By year 2004 the Company management decided to launch “Road Prince” a 4 stroke 70cc motorcycle of Chinese origin.
