eruption. At the beginning of 1991, events were erupting in the Gulf following
the Iraqi Invasion to the State of Kuwait. A state of maximum alert was declared
in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to liberate Kuwait. Consequently, all business in
the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia came to standing still as the situation was obscure
and risky. However, under such expediting circumstances, friendship brought together two ambitious youth who don’t acknowledged impossible and who could foresight the opportunity even under the worst circumstances. Based on such spirit, they decided to incorporate major contracting company specialist in the field of Electrical Works and they started at the eastern region of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia due to its proximity to the sources of Oil in the Kingdom and its unique position among other gulf states.
The teamwork at that time was small but effective and had major experiences in the contracting fields.

At that time, the teamwork was no more than one Engineer, Mohammed Ezzat.
