Our Foundation

The story of Abdul Latif Jameel begins 70 years ago when the small trading business was based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. In 1955, the company was appointed as the first distributor of Toyota vehicles in the country and today, some 60 years later, this strong relationship with Toyota Motor Corporation still stands.

With this solid foundation, Abdul Latif Jameel began exploring new markets, territories and business opportunities, and today has a presence in 30 countries, across five continents, with operations in seven major industry sectors, including Land and Real Estate.

While the initial focus was on developing and delivering our own corporate real estate projects and to support business growth and expansion, its experience in successfully developing and delivering corporate real estate projects that supported business growth and expansion led to the official formation of Abdul Latif Jameel Land, which formally stepped into Saudi Arabia’s commercial real estate market in 2012.
