Industry: Construction & Industry
Company: Nass Group
Abdulla Ahmed Nass established his self-titled group almost half a century ago; today it is an industrial conglomerate and construction powerhouse encompassing a total of 34 companies and six associates, with operations throughout the Gulf.
After spending 10 years in Saudi Arabia gaining experience in the contracting industry, Nass returned to Bahrain in 1963 to set up his own civil construction and general trading business. The ambitious entrepreneur was soon undertaking major construction projects and quickly established a formidable reputation, branching into associated sectors such as manufacturing, trading, marine transport, ship repair, offshore engineering, dredging and land reclamation.
has extended its horizons beyond Bahrain and has set up affiliates in Kuwait (Al Ghanim and Nass General Trading and Contracting Co), Saudi Arabia (Nass and Partners) and Qatar (Qatar Al Attiyah International Group). All of this means that Nass is considered one of the construction titans of the Gulf, not just Bahrain, and one of the region’s most respected business figures.
