Ever since the company's establishment in 1922, the Kettaneh Group has sought to provide true satisfaction to its customers and potential clients.
Francis the eldest of the four Kettaneh brothers first established the company alone but was later joined by his brother Alfred, and afterwards by Charles and Désiré. Four determined men working hard, hand in hand, to start out what later expanded into the Kettaneh Frères ventures.
From the early beginnings, the Kettaneh brothers developed and were responsible of a transport and trade venture which worked between Beirut, Damascus, Baghdad and Tehran. They accordingly named the venture BDBT. During World War II however, times were tough and the company weathered hardships, but Kettaneh never gave up.
Francis Kettaneh left Lebanon in the mid forty's to settle in New York.
Expansion came when they became sole distributors of a number of US brands in the region. This was the push they needed to conduct what was to be a long productive and diversified business development.
A little less than a century later, Kettaneh has been divided into two categories trade and heavy civil contracting with more than 5,000 employees with branches in Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, AbuDhabi, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Palestine as well as other places such as Europe.
A professional entrepreneurial spirit, and commitment to family values, as well as the personal development of Kettaneh's employees are the foundation on which the Group's entire operation is based. Today, the Francis and Charles Kettaneh families own the Group and as always Kettaneh since 1922 is, committed to serving you.
