Ajlan & Bros Group started as a small shop in the center of the Deira market in Riyadh and has grown to a diverse family of companies capable of delivering its products to many countries worldwide. The Group was founded in 1979 by four brothers: Ajlan, Saad, Mohamed, and Fahad. Today, the Group is considered one of the most reputable Saudi companies in the world of textiles and garments, and one of the largest investors in real estate development. Currently one of the most reputable conglomerates in MENA, and growing globally, Ajlan & Bros Group have invested in many sectors, such as Water, Power, Environment, Oil & Gas, Healthcare, Food Security, Facility Management, Tourism, Logistics, Blockchain, Industrial Manufacturing, Real Estate, Textiles, Technology, Mining and Minerals, FMCG, Events & Entertainment, Gaming, Financial Services, Fintech and Hospitality.
Ajlan bin Abdulaziz Alajlan grew up in a trading house. His father, Sheikh Abdulaziz Alajlan, had been trading foods and fabrics since 1955 in the Deira market in Riyadh. During the seventies, Ajlan and his brothers established a small shop in the Deira market. Years of hard work and expansion led to the establishment of ‘Ajlan & Bros’ group in 1979. During this period, Ajlan and his brothers were learning the fundamentals of trading until they grew aware of the methodologies of purchasing, selling, and the ability to engage the public and market with complete honesty and commitment.
Since day one, Ajlan and his brothers focused on textiles and fabrics. In the eighties, their business flourished due to continuous hard work and devotion, aligning with the start of the televised advertisement era when the four brothers founded their trademark in 1990.
At that time, new brands and trademarks, including those established by Ajlan & Bros, filled the market, and they were motivated and keen to make a name for themselves. The brands launched in the local market in 1990 gained the trust and confidence of the company's customers across broad public segments. These brands began to expand and spread vastly. In the late 1990s Ajlan & Bros decided to take their business to the next level by starting to manufacture their products, aiming to meet the demand of the Saudi market; this comes at a time when the Group's sales increased and achieved very significant growth.
Ajlan & Bros Group focused on its production and manufacturing in England, Japan, and South Korea. However, the Group eventually settled on China as a base for their factories due to increasing production cost in other countries. The factories in China started production at the beginning of the new millennium, employing around 12,000 workers.
When did Ajlan & Bros start exporting ?
Ajlan & Bros focused on the Saudi market from the eighties up to the nineties to meet the increasing demand in the local market. However, with the commencing of the industrial production process, and the growing needs of many markets, the exporting journey began by entering the Gulf regional markets. The new millennium witnessed the company reaching many markets in the Middle East. Nowadays, our products can be found in many countries worldwide.
Ajlan & Bros Investments
Ajlan & Bros may have started as a textiles and fabrics business, yet the Group was successful in expanding its investments in several vital sectors such as real estate, energy, water, food, tourism, entertainment, industrial security, and logistics. A special department for international investment was established to invest in the stock market in the Kingdom and worldwide. Nowadays, the Group invests in many multinational companies in several countries. Ajlan & Bros Group is today one of the largest companies in the Middle East, with investments exceeding $ 15 billion.
