Y.K. Almoayyed & Sons, one of the most admired business enterprises in the Kingdom of Bahrain today, began in 1940 when its founder Yousuf Khalil Almoayyed opened his first shop at Tijjar Road by selling imported electrical goods and trading in sugar, tea, coffee and sandalwood beams for roofing. Soon after the company was the provisions supplier to the Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO), the British Navy and Royal Air Force due to a reputation built on honesty and goodwill.
The company began representing prestigious international brands in 1946 after securing agency agreements for General Electric Company (GEC) and Lister Blackstone. The brands grew over the years to include Nissan, Infiniti, Ford, Renault, Toshiba, Hitachi, Komatsu, Iveco, UD Trucks, Palfinger, Grohe, Twyford, Jaquar, Sony, Bose, Nikon, Kodak, just to name a few, thus resulting in the exponential growth and expansion of the company.
The company’s commitment to social responsibility is equally matched by its belief in Bahrain’s economic potential. Investments in myriad industries and services continue to create jobs, spur business activities and help develop the Kingdom’s economy.
Yousuf Khalil Almoayyed will always be remembered as a visionary and pioneer of industry whose strong faith in God, commitment to excellence, desire to succeed, trust in his country and empathy to his fellowmen touched the lives of many people. His legacy lives on through his children and grandchildren who are today managing the continued success of the Y.K. Almoayyed & Sons Group. His life journey is an inspiration to the future generation of Bahrainis to dream, believe and achieve a better quality of life.
