A market leader in today’s construction trading industry in the Middle East and Africa, Sehnaoui Plant Group of Companies built its competencies and brand from a humble construction yard in Lebanon almost twenty years ago.
Founded in 1994 under the name Sehnaoui Plant, the company joined forces with Uteco and Syrun, two 35-year-old companies established in Lebanon and Syria in 1998.
In 2000, Sehnaoui Plant was restructured to transform its Lebanese operations into a headquarters center, enabling it to springboard into the international market through a series of regional ventures.
The company began with Iraq in 2000, Nigeria in 2001, and Qatar in 2003, followed by a joint venture with the Al Sraiya Group to establish Tawrid Qatar. 2006 saw entries into the UAE and Omani markets.
Also that year, IMER Middle East was established as a strategic joint venture between Sehnaoui Plant and the IMER Group, an Italian manufacturer of concrete plants and truck mixers.
In 2007, SPBF Offshore was established through a joint venture with the Al Baladi Group. In 2009, our entry into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was completed with the establishment of IMER Middle East Saudi.
In 2011, the various subsidiaries and ventures were consolidated under the umbrella of the Sehnaoui Plant Group of Companies.
In 2012, the Group began a major overhaul effort to ensure it could effectively endure the continued economic crisis in the construction industry, and be well-positioned to enjoy the economic uplift to come.
This strategic effort focused on promoting a new corporate culture, further professionalizing our business development and expansion into new markets, and empowering its teams with strong talent management and socially-aware causes.
