Engineer Ziad Al Manaseer Speech on Labor Day

Dear Manaseer Group Colleagues,

Twenty years have passed since we laid the cornerstone of Manaseer Group and steadily emerged as a true contributor to the socioeconomic advancement of our beloved country; Jordan. On this special occasion, I would like to take the opportunity to look back together at some of the most notable milestones we have reached, none of which would have been possible without your unwavering support, dedication and devotion.

We embarked on our journey in 1999 with the launch of our first enterprise; Manaseer Trade. Today, two decades later, we have expanded our operations to encompass over twenty subsidiaries within various strategic and vital sectors - such as construction, infrastructure, mining, energy, business solutions, food, services and chemicals - with total investments of nearly USD 2.5 billion. These achievements would not have been possible without the invaluable support of His Majesty King Abdullah II ibn Al Hussein, who since assuming the throne, has been determined to prompt an era of comprehensive economic growth and resume the journey of reform and development to ultimately position Jordan among the ranks of the most highly advanced countries in our region.

Through these investments, we were able to generate more than 10,000 sustainable job opportunities for ambitious, qualified and highly experienced local youth, while delivering premium products and services to consumers - a longstanding approach and vision we adopted years ago that underlines our firm belief that Jordanian citizens deserve nothing but the best.

Because unity is power, Manaseer Group established a series of strategic partnerships with distinguished companies and organizations that share our values, namely: Arab Towers Contracting Company, a leader across Jordan and the region; Mediterranean and Gulf Cooperative Insurance Company, a pioneer throughout the Arab World; and Luminus Education, which comprises Luminus Technical University College, an acclaimed institution recognized for offering distinct majors that are aligned with today’s evolving labor market requirements.

During the past 20 years - and as part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) - we also extended our support to several civil society entities, charities and individuals in order to help enhance the living standards of our fellow Jordanian brothers and sisters. Furthermore - and recognizing the importance of elevating the local sports scene - we continue to sponsor different Jordanian football championships on the national, regional and international levels, as well as advocate a multitude of diverse events and activities.

This month, as the world commemorates Labor Day, I would like to express my pride in and gratitude towards your loyalty and perseverance, which have enabled us to cement our standing as one of the largest business powerhouses in the region. You are the driving force behind our success. For this reason. I pledge to you that we resume our growth and continue to create tangible positive impact on the social, economic and development fronts, once again renewing our commitment to building Jordan for the benefit of future generations.

 

Manaseer Group… Our success story!

 

Your Brother,

Ziad Al Manaseer
