Electricity is an index of civilized nation and a necessity on the day to day life of the people. National development of a country is judged by the quantum and amount of electricity it produces and consumes. The Government has taken effective plans to spread electrical network to all corners of the country with a view to developing infrastructure as well as building up and improving the rural economy.
In order to achieve the above objectives the scheme of establishment of a heavy electrical complex in the name of General Electric Manufacturing Plant at North Patenga, Chittagong was formally and finally approved by the Government of Bangladesh in 1972. As an enterprise of Bangladesh Steel & Engineering Corporation, it was emerged as a public limited company in 1979 and renamed General Electric Manufacturing Company Limited popularly known as GEMCO. It is today the largest engineering and manufacturing enterprise of its kind in Bangladesh.
