Since the seventies, the UAE has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame and the world no longer looks at the region as an oil and gas hub only. Today the UAE is a reputable exporter of world-class products and services ranging from everyday necessities to highly specialised items.
At the forefront of this economic revolution lies The Kanoo Group as one of the largest independent, family-owned groups of companies in the Gulf region with products and services ranging from shipping, travel, machinery, logistics, property, oil and gas, power, chemicals, engineering, trainings, among others.
The family business first made its name in the shipping industry. Kanoo Shipping has evolved from a shipping agent specialising in liner business to being the region's premier tanker agent and offshore service provider. Similarly, Kanoo Travel has evolved to be one of the largest travel management companies in the Middle East, providing a sophisticated array of travel services specialising in corporate travel, airline representation and marine travel; while Kanoo Machinery has moved forward as one of the leading materials handling equipment distributors and solutions providers, giving the market a wide range of product offering from sales, parts, rentals and aftermarket services.
Today, there are over 1,200 people working for The Kanoo Group in the UAE & Oman, with pioneering leaders each working towards the company's common goal of being an innovative leader in the Gulf market and beyond.
