Zamil Group Holding Company was founded by the late Sheikh Abdullah Al-Hamad Al
Zamil (1897-1961), an aspiring Saudi Arabian entrepreneur, who established a modest trading entity
selling food items and textiles in the Kingdom of Bahrain in the 1930s. Later, he expanded his
business successfully into real estate investments in Saudi Arabia.
The start of the industrialization program of Saudi Arabia in the early
1970’s, the Kingdom’s favorable economic conditions and the government’s support
for the private sector provided an ideal environment for his sons to further their father’s
pioneering spirit . A carefully planned strategic program to establish the core industrial base of
the Zamil Group and accelerate the diversification of its activities was implemented and included
harnessing opportunities in new and promising areas poised for sustainable growth.
Meticulous planning and sound management practices have made Zamil Group Holding
Company a renowned and internationally respected, multi-million dollar global investment company
known for its diversified industrial operations and commercial interests.
