Our Story

Founded in 1975 by Mr. Faisal AlMatrook, FAMCORP began its journey in Bahrain as the Faisal AlMatrook Establishment, embarking on a path of growth and diversification that would span decades and cross international borders.

Initially rooted in concrete manufacturing, our company rapidly expanded its horizons into the trading of building materials, catering to the burgeoning construction industry. Recognizing the need for comprehensive solutions, we also ventured into the hire of heavy earthmoving equipment, servicing the civil engineering and road construction sectors.

With an eye for opportunity and a commitment to diversification, FAMCORP soon added a new dimension to its operations, supplying an array of catering equipment and accessories to the airline catering industry. By 1977, our entrepreneurial spirit led us to further expand our portfolio into the plastics manufacturing sector.

The year 1987 marked a significant milestone in our history as we extended our operations to Dubai, United Arab Emirates. This strategic move not only broadened our geographical reach but also enriched our service offerings, encompassing concrete manufacturing, civil contracting, and soon, a foray into the mechanical engineering and steel fabrication industry by 1989.

The 1990s ushered in a new era of growth and partnerships. Collaborating with the internationally renowned Air Products Inc., we began distributing high integrity industrial gases, catering to a wide array of industries both within the UAE and internationally.

Our relentless pursuit of excellence was further exemplified in 1995 when we secured a landmark contract with Dubai Aluminium. This venture enabled us to manufacture the region’s first superstructures for aluminum production, firmly establishing FAMCORP as a leader in this domain.

The turn of the millennium saw us expanding our physical footprint, with the establishment of a new facility spanning over a million square feet, aimed at bolstering our manufacturing capabilities. By 2003, FAMCORP had grown to include one of the largest precast companies in the UAE, specializing in the manufacturing of diverse precast elements.

The past decade has been a transformative period for our group. We established our holding company and investment arm, strategically positioning ourselves to better manage and nurture our diverse interests. In 2013, this entity was aptly renamed FAMCORP, reflecting our evolved identity and global aspirations.

Today, FAMCORP proudly holds major stakes in numerous companies across various disciplines and countries. As a limited liability entity, we have continued to expand, notably incorporating the esteemed real estate development business of the late Mr. Ali AlMatrook in Bahrain, a legacy that we proudly carry forward.

Our story is one of vision, versatility, and unwavering commitment to excellence. As FAMCORP, we continue to build on our rich heritage, steering towards a future where innovation, growth, and sustainability remain the cornerstones of our success.
