Who are Abdul Latif Jameel

From One Man’s Vision . . . to a Modern Powerhouse

Some 70 years ago, the late Abdul Latif Jameel opened a small trading business in the Red Sea town of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and being a pioneering entrepreneur, he approached Toyota Motor Corporation to import, initially, just four, of the company’s early all-terrain vehicles. The increasing popularity of these vehicles led to our appointment as the first Toyota distributor in Saudi Arabia in 1955, a role we are still honored and privileged to hold today. Fast forward seven decades later, and we are now a globally respected business and a committed social entrepreneur. Positioned as the trusted investment partner for some of the world’s leading brands seeking to participate in our region’s potential.
