Azzam has always been a pioneer. Our corporate culture is one of dedication, respect and continuous improvement. We measure our success by our Client’s successes.
In 1973: Formation
Late Abdul Aziz Ali Al-Ahmed- a devoted business oriented man founded Azzam Trading & Contracting Co. Ltd. as a specialized company in the field of construction equipment rental and with a provision of general services to large international contractors like supply of manpower, materials, demolition, site clearing etc.
In 1985: Accommodation Facilities
Most of the construction activities in the Kingdome were done by large European Companies. In the meantime, it came to our notice, the despite limit of secured accommodation facilities for Europeans. As a solution, we built a European Compound with high security covered by armed Saudi National Guards. Later on, we extended our compound with Arabian Standard & also Labor camp with TCN standard separately.
In 1986: Contracting works
After 13 years of great fruitful experiences, we have re-organized Azzam as a Construction company. The company has since become known for its high quality in the construction of commercial & industrial buildings. Since then, we have shaped our future with an indomitable spirit, developing many innovative construction projects. We have undertaken all the type of contracting works such as Civil, Electro-mechanical, steel fabrication & erection, Concrete precast elements, drilling & blasting, manpower rental etc. We started to undertake projects Kingdome-wide.
To ensure a rapid response to market requirements, we did decentralization of area. We have established facilities in Riyadh, Jubail, Al-Khobar, Tabuk, Shoaiba & Yanbu. Due to availability of large equipment inventory and a wide range of highly skilled workforce Azzam, is largely self-reliant and thereby able to undertake & to coordinate projects within its own organization and resources.
In 1989: Marine Division
During these periods, the Kingdome was in worst stage of developing its shore side for commercial purposes. To comply with the advantage of Marine Construction, after a worldwide study, we found SF MARINA SYSTEMS AB, SWEDEN as an innovative & advanced manufacture of Concrete floating docks & accessories. A Production license agreement has been made with SF MARINA SYSTEMS with a territory of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, & Yemen and Azzam started producing the Concrete Floating Pontoons since that time in our Jeddah yard.
In 1998: Labor Camp/ Senior staff accommodation at Yanbu
In this period, a lot of projects were going on at Yanbu area and felt many problems to find out a proper accommodation for our employees. So, our Management has decided to construct an accommodation area at Yanbu. We constructed accommodation for labors & another Villa accommodation camp for senior staffs. We used to rent out this accommodation facilities.
In 2010: Bahrain Branch
To cover the wide Marine Construction field of Bahrain & other GCC Country, we formed a branch office at Manama, Bahrain. Our staffs are working independently for marketing Azzam marina products & services with in the area of Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar & Yemen.
