Omeir Bin youssef Group
A Long History of Corporate Excellence
About the Company
Established in 1956 by two brothers keen to leave their impact on the Emirati market, Omeir Bin Youssef Group first started out as Khalifa and Omeir Travel Agency and was home to a modest four employees. The company’s first business forays spanned the travel industry with services such as booking, airline representation, cargo handling and airport ground-handling services. By 1967, the company had already set on its path to expansion, acquiring British Petroleum and becoming sole distributors of brands such as Rothmans, Palmolive and Colgate.
In 1971, Mr. Khalifa Bin Youssef passed away and Omeir Bin Youssef Group was officially founded. While the circumstances were unfortunate, the group had a new energy to it and by 1976, OBY had over 100 employees under their helm. Over the course of the next few years, OBY would go on to successfully venture into automotive services and real estate. Currently, the company counts commercial and residential real estate development as one of its most prolific specialties. In parallel, the company continues to sponsor internationally-acclaimed companies in Abu Dhabi such as ABB.
Over the years, the company’s financial success and independence has enabled it to stay true to its vision and values. Founded on the noble pillars of passion, reliability, credibility and charity, the group continues to look for those same values in its employees, partners and collaborators, privileging the founders’ morals first and foremost. By building on its growth and seeking investment opportunities, the company continues to expand and grow its portfolio, inviting partnerships and improving its own efficiency and productivity.
The group has been granted a number of awards and accolades and has crossed many milestones along the way. Today, Omeir Bin Youssef group has become one of the most renowned groups on the UAE market, with a long history of success in the sector, and has recently launched offices in the USA and China. With sights set far on the future, Omeir Bin Youssef Group is already looking forward to more successful ventures, expansion opportunities and community service.
