British honour for NRI industrialist

June 11, 2005 13:01 IST
Leading NRI industrialist Rami Ranger was on Saturday made a member of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to business and to the British Asian community.

Ranger, chief executive officer of Sun Oil, who received the Queen's Award for export achievement few years ago for exporting British products to over 40 countries, was honoured on the occasion of Queen Elizabeth II's birthday.

Ranger has been working within the Conservative Party and encouraging the party to become more approachable and "Asian" friendly.

He has been advocating the view that it was high time the Conservative Party started treating the Asians equally and fairly as this would enable them to progress within the party.

Born in Gujrawala, now in Pakistan, Rami moved to India during partition. He arrived in the UK in 1971 and in 1987 he started his company Sea Air and Land from a shed with a capital of just 2 pounds.

In 1995 he started his marketing company Sun Oil Ltd. Both companies have gone from strength to strength.
