FAMCORP was founded by Mr. Faisal Al Matrook and has been in business since 1975.
The company initially engaged in concrete manufacturing, building materials, the hire of heavy earth moving equipment, and catering equipment and accessories for the airline catering industry. By 1977, it had branched out into the manufacturing of plastics.
The company continued expanding in Bahrain by taking the late Mr. Ali Al Matrook’s real estate development business, continuing to this day, 40 years on.
In 1987, the company extended its operations to Dubai, broadening the reach and range of its activities to concrete manufacturing, civil and MEP contracting, and high integrity industrial gases as a distributor for Air Products Inc.
1995 saw FAMCORP securing contracts from Dubai Aluminium to manufacture the first regionally produced superstructures, potshells, anode stems, buzzbars, and associated components.
The Millennium added a new facility of over 1,000,000 ft2 for the expansion of its precast companies in the UAE, manufacturing hollowcore, pre-stressed and various other precast elements.
Within this decade the group established its holding company and investment arm to consolidate its interests. In 2013 the holding company was renamed FAMCORP and now has major stakes internationally in various companies with multiple disciplines.
