Al Masaood Group
The Al Masaood Group was established more than fifty years ago by the late Mohammed Bin Masaood and has remained prominent in the United Arab Emirates ever since. Over the years, the business has grown from being a small trading house, to one of the largest trading and commercial organizations in the Middle East with a heavy emphasis on the power industry. Today the Group has an annual turnover of US$1.8 Billion.
Al Masaood's involvement with the gas turbine industry stretches as far back as 1969 acting as agent for John Brown Engineering when the first gas turbine was installed in the UAE. The customer was the Abu Dhabi Government. Since then Al Masaood formed Masaood John Brown together with John Brown Engineering to support the first fleet of gas turbines installed in the Gulf Cooperation Council ("GCC").
The Al Masaood Group is one of the most respected names in the Middle East and presently operates through 73 individual business units spanning 18 diverse market segments in association with many of the world's leading companies.
