The Alghanim Family was among the original families to populate what would once become Kuwait. And since those early days, it has built a formidable reputation as one of the region’s chief commercial merchants.

The modern era of their business dominance started in 1932 when Yusuf Ahmed Alghanim returned to Kuwait from his studies abroad and took over one of his father’s businesses. By the end of the 1930s, he had established the reputation of Alghanim throughout the Middle East and was employing more than 4,000 people.

The Family’s core business activities are in Civil Construction, Power, Petrochemicals, Oil & Gas, Environment, Infrastructure, Automotive Dealership, Telecommunication and Shipping sectors throughout Kuwait and within the International markets.  The group prides itself on responding to the constantly changing needs of clients and markets by providing excellent quality services through targeted skill sets and cutting edge technology that exceeds the expectations of their clients. The Family’s phrase is …. “We Get It Done.”
