About Us

AboutAlmuftah Group started its operations in 1963 at a providential time when the oil- and gas-rich nation of Qatar first began exploring the advantages of establishing a diversified economic base.

This pioneering spirit, so palpable in the country during that new era of progress, also fueled the passion and imagination of Almuftah Group's founder and chairman, Abdulrehman Muftah Almuftah, and a small team of innovative individuals who went on to establish the company.

From its humble beginnings as a dealer of tyres in the 1960s, Almuftah Group has evolved to become one of Qatar's most esteemed business groups, a diversified enterprise which today offers a multiplicity of world-class products and services to its customers. At present, Almuftah Group employs hundreds of people of different nationalities and backgrounds, each one of whom is helping the company excel in a diverse number of fields.

The company works with a network of foreign partners, government institutions, and local businesses to execute major building, civil, and industrial engineering and construction projects – all part of the construction boom that is taking place in the Gulf Region's most dynamic nation. In addition, Almuftah Group also owns businesses in a number of other sectors, including automotive and transport, industrial equipment and components, home and business electronics, residential and contract furnishings, cable and satellite TV broadcasting, education, restaurants and catering, graphic design and publicity, travel and recreation, real estate, wellness and fitness, and personal products and accessories. Concrete plans are also in place to further expand the Group's presence in other key cities around the Middle East.

In 2013, Almuftah Group celebrated its 50th anniversary, a milestone for an enterprise which has built its business on the conviction that excellence, good leadership, and success all go hand-in-hand. Qatar is leading the Gulf Region in its economic golden age, and Almuftah Group is proudly at the forefront of this nation's march toward the future.

A message from our chairman

Chairman

As founder and chairman of Almuftah Group of Companies, one of the pioneer business establishments in the State of Qatar, I look back with satisfaction at the great achievements and astonishing growth of our enterprise. From its modest beginnings during its nascent years, it has become one of the country’s biggest businesses, thanks to the keen vision, inspiration, and hard work of all those who have been part of our family.

Since its inception, Almuftah Group has diversified its business and has touched the lives of people from all walks of life. It gives me a great sense of fulfilment when I think about the winning network of employees, customers, and partners that we have built over the years. I am certainly grateful to all the people who repose confidence in our work.

But all of this would not have been possible if not for the invaluable support that the Government of the State of Qatar has afforded us through the years. Our government — wise and prudent but also determined and ingenious — played a vital role in the development of Qatar’s private sector, of which Almuftah Group is part. It certainly did not occur just by happenstance that the growth of our business transpired alongside the evolution of this great nation.

Indeed, I am confident that with the support of all our partners and customers and with the continued perseverance and dedication of our people, all of our future endeavours will continue to be successful.

-Abdulrehman Muftah Almuftah

History and Heritage

HistoryEvery day, we run our businesses hoping to do two simple things: to make you happy and to make Qatar a better place. This was true when Almuftah Group was established half a century ago, and it is just as true today. Every piece of jewellery we make, we craft with utmost care because we know it can make you feel special; every edifice we build, we construct with unparallelled passion because every single one of them is a testament to Qatar’s towering ambitions.

This page celebrates the successful integration of our many divisions into an enterprise that now covers a full spectrum of industries. So broad has become our experience and expertise that today, our customers come to us for an astonishing number of goods and services. From the beginning, we have set out to be a different kind of company, and we have accomplished this goal only because you have been with us every step of the way.

The past 50 years in our business history has been a road well run for us. We invite you to take a look at these significant dates in our organisation’s history — highlights that together make up Almuftah Group’s long and proud heritage.
