Chairman’s Message

Originally founded by Sheikh Abdel Hadi Abdullah Al-Qahtani in the 1940’s as a wholesaler and supplier of food products and materials, the business has grown and diversified into supplying other industries including petrochemicals and the oil & gas industries. As the need grew for local manufacturing and local products, the Group diversified its activities in the 1950’s to include manufacturing, contracting and services.

Huge investment and facilities in pipe corrosion services, manufacturing of spiral weld steel pipes, water treatment chemicals, nails, galvanized wire manufacturing, industrial and medical gases, water bottling, engineering and construction and bulk food packaging now make up a large portion of the Group’s activities.

Not overlooking the services side of its activities, the Group has ventured into areas such as insurance, travel, tourism, transportation and custom clearance. In order to diversify its investment portfolio in the early 1970’s the Group established an office in Houston Texas to assist the Group in support and business development. Thereafter with the expansion in business activities, other offices were established in Europe and other major Middle East countries.

Pipe Inspection, Environmental Protection Services, exploration of mineral resources, vehicles and machinery and real estate Investment are other areas where the Group has expanded its services and investments. The Group owns vast areas of agricultural land used for farming and raising of various types of livestock and in particular, prized pure bred Arabian horses.

The Group represents major international manufacturers and suppliers and is involved in joint venture investment projects. A staff of highly qualified and dedicated professionals oversees this area of the business with customer service being a priority.

We are focusing our activities to achieve sustainable improvements in the earning power and value of the Group.

With five decades of experience the Group has established itself as a reliable supplier of materials, equipment, engineering services and other products to the major players in the oil, gas, construction, petrochemical, water and power industries in Saudi Arabia and the other GCC member countries.

The skills and talents of our management and employees coupled with our strategy to date, gives me confidence that we will further develop new opportunities for the Group which is proud of its history, but looks forward to a great future.
