Who We Are?
Panjeree is a leading and trusted name in the publication arena of Bangladesh. It is rich with an array of large collections of both academic and creative books.
With a view to bring about a far-reaching pragmatic change in this field, Panjeree started its journey in 1994; and meeting all the challenges, it finally became a limited company in 2000. Initially, Panjeree kept its scope limited to publishing educational books. However, with the years of experience in the publication sector of Bangladesh, it has significantly expanded its reach to all wings of publications while ensuing a modern approach. Keeping the linguistic competence and tastes of different age groups in mind, Panjeree has been one of the best publishing companies in Bangladesh.
Panjeree has already achieved distinction in publishing creative works, particularly in children’s literature. Realizing the importance of the young readers, we have been successfully publishing reference books, novels, poetry books, comics, travelogues, classics in translation for the juveniles that have created a culture of reading among them.
Our commitment to publish quality books has received wide acclamation. Crossing the borders, Panjeree has already earned commendation as a result of our endeavor to expand our market and activities in India, the UK and other parts of Europe, the USA, Australia, and few other countries.
Our contributors include a diverse panel of distinguished academics, researchers, acclaimed and award winning writers and editors. We also have a strong team of in-house editors and specialist proofreaders. Our state-of-the-art distribution management team has set an outstanding example by establishing a well-knit distribution network and an international standard bookshop chain, PBS. It is one of the most popular bookstores in Bangladesh. PBS organizes year round book fairs all over the country.
As we make a steady progress to achieve our goal of becoming a global name, we are also pledge bound to help achieve the aims of UNESCO’s ‘Books for Everyone’ and Bangladesh Government’s ‘Education for All’. We are trying to build a future where passion for reading will be one of the key parameters of a society’s progress.
