The formation of the Federation uniting, for the first time, the various Emirates of the Arabian Peninsular into one nation inspired Mr. Khalaf Al Habtoor to establish Al Habtoor Engineering Enterprise, to undertake turnkey construction projects throughout the new country.
The Group was asked to built some of the first hospitals in the UAE, including Rashid Hospital, Al Wasl hospital and the New Dubai Hospital for the Government of Dubai as well as hospitals on the East Coast, for the Federal Government.
During the 1970′s, through prudent planning the company, under the leadership of Mr. Khalaf Al Habtoor, began to diversify. At first concentrating on ventures to support its core business, such as marble and building equipment. Later the company turned to other sectors that it is now well known for, including real estate, hotels, catering, leisure, motor vehicles and quality education.
In the last few years, the AI Habtoor Group has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in developing new projects and will continue to do so in the future.
