Mohamed Hareb Al Otaiba started a trading company back in 1946, at a time when oil had not been discovered yet and trading was still the lifeline of the region’s economy. It was the vision of Mohamed Hareb Al Otaiba which saw the birth of one of the ﬁrst business houses in the UAE. However, the trading history of the Al Otaiba family goes back much further, as the family were master pearl traders in the Arabian Gulf.
From the days of pearl trading and the origins of the Al Otaiba family through to the modern day MHAO trading of high-end goods and equipment, quality has always been and still remains our priority. Today our portfolio includes some of the leading names in domestic appliances, kitchen equipment and home goods.
