History of Al Bawardi Enterprises

Al Bawardi Enterprises has truly followed the footsteps of UAE with regards to strategy and growth in various industry sectors. Looking back, in the year 1979, Al Bawardi Enterprises started with a very humble setup and a dedicated but loyal micro team under its flagship company Al Bawardi Oil and Gas (Now Emdad). Over the decades, it ventured and establish growth from one industry sector to the other. Be it Information Technology, Advertisement and Marketing, Manpower and Recruitment, Management System Consultancy and Training or as robust as Real Estate. Over the last four decades, the leadership team has established its presence in Abu Dhabi, UAE and the region.

Emdad is an example of strong vision. The small trading company established in the initial years, successfully secured representation from the world’s most prestigious brand names in the Oil& Gas Industry. However knowing the market expectations and client requirements it did not limit itself to trading only. It went further venturing into value-added services such as cementing, whipstock, shutdown maintenance, valve fabrication, OBM Operations and Cathodic Protection. Accordingly EMDAD developed into a group of companies with daughter companies such as Emjel, Prezioso, InterGulf Contracting, Emdad Services etc.

Al Bawardi Enterprises has adopted and embraced new challenges and technologies as and when the time was ready for it. In the mid-eighties when the PC revolution changed the business practices, Al Bawardi Computers (now ITQAN) were the first to offer emerging technologies that extended from basic hardware to enterprise-wide applications and later web-based solutions. Al Bawardi Enterprises has been the pioneer to invest in an IT-related business since then. ASPGulf is one such example o which has been the market leader in providing state of the art IT solutions from its beginning, and has recently developed into a managed solutions provider.

In the nineties, in tune with the global trend, AE moved into new segments such as Medical Equipment, Interior Design and Office Furniture, Telecommunications, e-business, e-commerce, marketing and advertising and niche contracting.

After the year 2000, Al Bawardi Enterprises evolved further thereby renaming/relaunching it’s brand names: Tatweer, Emdad, ITQAN, Tahjeez, Furnicon, Grafik International were well thought-of visions which started producing major strides in the market.

The year after 2010 brought in new business activities such as Masader in Manpower and Recruitmenting, Darl Al Khebrat in Property and Maintenance, Emjel for Cementing and various other new business activities.
