Chairman’s Message

This company was built on the idea of bringing the world’s finest products and services to the region in order to provide a total solution to the most demanding clients. Since the company’s inception in 1977, we have strived to continuously be in the forefront of modern technologies and systems that are unique to our company. The idea that we can build companies by starting to grow them within the infrastructure that is available in GMI has always been a focal point and has in fact been the starting point for many of our group companies. Today, the company is one of the large players in verity of fields.

We are above all committed to our business, and through constant networking and interactions with our market and the people who drive economic and strategic policies we are able to identify and capitalize on business trends and the needs of our clients by identifying potential growth sectors and prospective developments that are primed to occur in the near future. Combining this exercise in due diligence with the skills that are available with each and every member of our company and our group as a whole, we are able to immediately cater to our clients needs even before they approach us to do so. This customer and market-centric approach is what paved the way for our success till this day.
