As managing director of Ahmadiah Contracting & Trading Company, Antoine Najjar is responsible for one of Kuwait’s oldest construction companies.

Established in 1954, the contractor has played a significant role in the development of the country, with experience on projects ranging from military facilities to utilities infrastructure.

Ahmadiah boasts a 5,600-strong workforce and a raft of subsidiaries, including real estate arm Al Raed International Trading Company; geotechnical contractor Edrasis Middle East; roads and bridges specialist Barco; and facilities management outfit ECovert FM.

Ahmadiah’s historic projects include the $40m (KWD12.1m) Bayan Palace, constructed between 1984 and 1985; the $102m (KWD30.8m) Amiri Diwan, built between 1993 and 1996; and Kuwait’s Ministry of Interior, completed in 2003. Najjar and his colleagues also worked on Al Hamra Firdous Tower, Kuwait’s tallest man-made structure.

The closed shareholding company has $40m (KWD12m) of paid-up capital, Ahmadiah officials told Construction Week.
