2009-12-16

Dubai – December 14, 2009 — For the ninth year in a row, Arabian Business Magazine and ITP organised the Arabian Business Awards on Monday, June 14, 2009 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Dubai, UAE. The Arabian Business Awards are designed to recognize excellence across all sectors of business in the Arab world.

Al Jaber Group won the Construction Company of the Year Award at this prestigious event. Her Excellency Fatima Obaid Al Jaber, COO of Al Jaber Group received the award on behalf of the Group.

The selection of Al Jaber Group was based on a number of factors that put the Group far from competition. As explained by ITP and Arabian Business Magazine, Al Jaber Group has over 45 companies under its umbrella and an asset base of AED10 billion. This is the 39th year of operations, and against a tough backdrop it has continued to perform strongly with an incredible 50,000 employees on the payroll. The Group has built many of the Gulf’s major road networks, and it is also one of the region’s major earth moving and infrastructure contractors with a huge range of equipment at its disposal.

The awards were selected by a special panel of judges comprising directors of ITP, and editors of Arabian Business.
