Al Rostamani Group
The Al Rostamani Group is one of the largest and oldest business conglomerates in the United Arab Emirates. Founded in 1957 with the late Mr. Abdullah Hassan Al Rostamani as Chairman, the group has grown steadfastly and conscientiously over the last 50 years with the guiding principles of commitment, care and vision with a genuine concern for the community.
The Al Rostamani Group has a diversified portfolio of businesses in such high growth areas as trading, automobiles and heavy equipment, travel, foreign exchange, financial services, property development, construction, building materials, infrastructure development, telecommunications, information technology services and recycling. The group is financially strong with hardly any loan commitments.
The success of the group is also due to its ability to forge longstanding alliances, joint ventures, dealerships and license arrangements with leading worldwide organizations such as Michelin, Castrol, Suzuki, Renault, Nissan Diesel, Tata, NEC, Avaya and Alcatel Lucent to name a few.
These relationships have been carefully nurtured so that the Al Rostamani Group now touches the lives of people in the UAE and beyond in many different ways. Investments in several European countries and relationships with Japanese, French, German, Dutch and Indian companies are steps to spreading its influence further afield.
Together with an employee base of 4,000, and counting, from 38 different countries the group fosters diversity and is poised for further growth.
