ABT Group

The nineteen seventies was an important era in the history of Saudi Arabian economy. The Kingdom witnessed unprecedented growth in its infrastructure, building and associated industries.

It was a time of great challenge and opportunity for businesses with entrepreneurial spirit and ambition. One such enterprise was ARABIAN BULK TRADE LIMITED founded in the year 1977 within the Xenel Group to meet the rapidly growing demand for cement in the Kingdom’s booming construction industry. The company was responsible for introducing the “Bulk Handling” concept to Saudi Arabia. It was an innovative concept which offered substantial economies of scale by reducing port congestion, eliminating wastage and significantly providing huge savings for the national economy of the Kingdom. The company thus established an excellent reputation in the process.

From a single company ABT has grown into a powerful group of companies operating successfully across a broad spectrum of markets. ABT Group companies currently include cement, bulk handling, transportation, international operations, shipping, building materials, scaffolding, construction and agricultural chemicals, grains and fertilizers.

The companies and their activities within the ABT Group are bonded by the symbol of the JAGUAR, a symbol that has become synonymous with strength, efficiency and reliability.
