Founded on traditional Kuwaiti business principles of trust, loyal
partnership and commitment to customer satisfaction, all sealed with a
handshake between the Al Thuwainy and Al-Najjar families in 1954, the
unwavering belief of Ahmadiah in the potential of Kuwait and its people
from the outset has seen it emerge as a leader and key contributor to the
nation’s civil engineering and building construction industry.
Transparency, integrity and accountability underpin our corporate
governance. We have always applied these principles to the way we direct
and manage our business, as well as how we conduct our relationships
with our clients, in both the public and private sectors.
Ahmadiah’s name has consequently become synonymous with quality,
style, reliability and ethical business practices. Our approach to leadership,
management and culture has played, and will continue to play, a vital role
in the growth of our organization. Being a leader means to be able to rise
to the occasion during difficult times and to always step up, anticipate
and prepare for challenges. As such, Ahmadiah’s relationship with Kuwait
has always been one of unity for better or worse, through thick and thin.
As such, even during the Iraqi occupation period, our management
team continued to look after our employees, despite all work having
been stopped indefinitely. Following liberation, we were thereby ready to
swiftly recommence operations and start rebuilding the country. We have
always regarded our human capital as our most important asset and we
still continue to focus on recruiting and retaining the very best people to
allow us to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.
Looking ahead, we are excited to share a very positive, successful future
with our clients, partners and friends as we become an even stronger
part of the nation’s overall strategy through the New Kuwait Vision
2035 and the opportunities for greater international and public-private
partnerships that Kuwait holds today.
