In the 70 years since MHAO was established, the world has changed a great deal. As an organisation, we have changed with it – and will continue to do so, now and in the future. But while our business may evolve over the years along with the marketplace we inhabit, our vision, mission and values continue to shine through.
As it has been since the day Mohamed Hareb Al Otaiba founded MHAO in 1946, our vision remains to be the UAE’s premier trading organisation – providing high-quality goods and working with only the finest brands. We continue to build on the solid foundations of the past to create a more visible company, penetrating the market with more quality products – making MHAO a household name in the region.
This primary vision – which runs through the history of our company as well as the Al Otaiba family – sits alongside our mission. The mission to change the face of trading in the UAE and beyond through exceptionally high standards, world-class project execution and gold-standard customer service.
Finally, everything we do at MHAO is underpinned by our core values: quality, commitment and integrity. That means MHAO will only ever be associated with the finest brands on the market. MHAO will forever remain committed to high standards, and committed to the needs of our clients, our customers and of course our staff.
And finally, MHAO will continue to conduct its business in an efficient, professional and meticulous manner – building on the principles put in place by our founder Mohamed Hareb Al Otaiba.
