Where We Come From

The roots of our tradition can be traced back to the year (1370 H - 1950G), when Sheik Ali Abdulmohsin Al-Tamimi started this business by manufacturing traditional cotton canvas tents & goat hair tents. The simple shelter, commonly used by native Arabs (the Bedouin), has been passed down from generation to generation, culminating in the advanced covers used in in tensile structure technology. Today, the company is run with a modern appreciation of management, while the traditional values remain unchanged.

The activities of the owners have demonstrated their close association with the company staff in a family working environment throughout the decades.
