of Companies
INTRODUCTION
This website is more about telling a success story than serving as a marketing tool. It is about shedding light on what can be achieved when dedication in efforts and seriousness of intent are coupled with honesty and unwavering resolve. In fact, the Bukhamseen Group with its numerous and diversified companies started off half a century ago with the vision of one man, Mr. Jawad Ahmed Bukhamseen, a pioneering and well-reputed businessman, known regionally for his business acumen, who founded the Jawad Bukhamseen Commercial Corporation in 1957. Under his able leadership, this simple company grew and diversified, ultimately moving in status from a family business to a full-fledged institution with interests in several economic sectors.

Initially, our contribution to the national economy was the fruit of leadership in trade, real estate and construction. As we pursued our quest for continuous development, we succeeded in matching pre-eminence in these sectors, with a robust presence in financial investment and banking, we also made a direct and significant contribution to other economic sectors such as the hospitality industry, travel and tourism, industrial production, media and communication work, and consultancy services in urban planning, civil engineering, and major development projects.

In all its achievements, our group has exemplified well established family values derived from deep-rooted Arab tradition. We believe in team spirit: viewing our corporate body as a family in its own right; transparency; observing directness, honesty and precision in our business endeavors; independence; valuing self-reliance as the main element on which our success was built; loyalty; cherishing our country, our culture, and being loyal to our customers whom we view as permanent partners and contributors to our sustained success. For us, loyalty to customers signifies safeguarding their rights and supporting the pursuit of their objectives and interests. Last but not least, we also believe in and respect diversity, as we acknowledge and value others cultural, geographic and economic backgrounds, yet without forgoing our own identity or forsaking our deep-rooted Arab and Kuwaiti values.

Over the last five decades, as our overall business programme witnessed steady expansion, it was continuously refined to accommodate changing times. Moreover, as we kept moving ahead, we were keen to bring enhanced capacity to inspire more people in Kuwait and the Middle East to carry forward their business career and to involve them in our efforts. Today, we can say that we are fortunate to work with a team of people who share our objectives and devote their days to participating in our achievements. Yet, this desire to continuously keep earning our place as a leading business group arises out of something more fundamental, which is to continue building up our country and support our community. Daunting as that task may seem, it is one we accept with an abiding gratitude to all of our supporters.
