Asalamoalikum Wa Rehmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Shafi Brothers website.

We began our journey in 1972, and have come a long way in building our Name to be one of the most trusted and reputable businesses in the market. We owe our success to the strong foundations and principals laid by our Fathers, for which we are ever thankful.

The Retail market is more than ever competitive and we at Shafi Brothers are adapting ourselves to new challenges every day.

To meet the challenges ahead and fulfill all our stakeholders’ expectations, we have restructured the company’s strategic initiatives embracing sustainable business practices, focusing on enhancing customer experience, operational efficiency and people development.

Shafi Brothers is a success story that would not be possible without the contribution of our customers and dedicated employees who have shared our incredible journey thus far. We look forward to continuing to serve and engage with them as well as other stakeholders in the future. We appreciate the ongoing support received from those who are interested in our activities and pledge to continue in our efforts to exceed expectations.

Asalamoalikum Wa Rehmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

After spending the past 41 years in the Distribution Business, I feel very privileged to be writing this message. We began our journey in 1972, and have spent the past decade continuing to build our brand, which has now become synonymous with our commitment to helping our clients share knowledge and create innovation.

As a company, we have seen much change over the past 40 years. For example:

  • We have nearly quadrupled our workforce and have embraced diversity.
  • We have doubled our number of brands
  • We have doubled our fleet of cars
  • We have continuously increased our market share.
  • We have expanded our presence all over UAE and also to the re-export market.

 It is also important to note what has not changed at Shafi Brothers, namely our commitments to providing exceptional client service and to living our core values: Excellence in Everything, Leadership by Example, Integrity and Transparency, Focus on the Client and Employee Centered.

Looking ahead, we are focused on accelerating the execution of our growth strategy while continuing to build on the strength of our brand—in helping our clients share knowledge and create innovation and in bringing positive change to the communities in which we work and live. I am incredibly excited about this journey and truly believe the best of Shafi Brothers is yet to come.

I welcome you to explore Shafi Brothers website. This is a small initiative to reach to our customers and stakeholders.
