Founded in 1953, when Sheikh Ali A. Al Tamimi decided to start his journey as an entrepreneur by establishing a company that specialized in building pipeline construction and general contracting. The company grew later to become a leader in different business sectors, such as building and contracting, trading, manufacturing, catering, operations and maintenance, and retail. Recently, the group went through a massive restructuring plan, which has resulted in higher productivity and work efficiency. The group also succeeded in establishing a few more sectors in marine services, industrial services and power. The owners have recognized that good governance, general transparency, and – in particular – ongoing financial transparency are critical to the long-term success and existence of the Tamimi Group. As such, they have also decided to apply corporate governance rules and regulations throughout the group’s companies. As a result, a dedicated team has been formed to manage and monitor the process.
