In the 1920s, originating from the historic Al Shindagha neighborhood of Dubai, our family traded in pearls, livestock, agricultural products, and minerals. Our business history precedes the formation of the United Arab Emirates by half a century, when our ancestors were involved in the pearl diving industry that helped define and sustain important commercial enterprises throughout the Arabian Peninsula. Today, we continue to strive to provide our customers and colleagues with excellent service and a collaborative relationship. We continue the conscientious business ethos of our forefathers while contributing to the economic vitality of the country and the region. As one of the UAE's most dynamic business groups, the third generation of the family is guided by the mission and vision of our forefathers.
