The Al Zubair Family


The success of The Zubair Corporation is largely based on the vision of His Excellency Mohammad Al Zubair, whose values, traditions and entrepreneurial spirit were influenced by his grandfather Sheikh Ali bin Jumah, close advisor to three sultans, and his father Sheikh Al Zubair bin Ali, who served under three Sultans and was Al Katib Al Awwal (First Clerk) to His Majesty Sultan Faisal bin Turki.

After his first job at Petroleum Development Oman, His Excellency established Oman’s first registered company in 1967. Since then, his company Muscat Trading Company has developed into one of the leading business conglomerates in the region, changing names to The Zubair Corporation in 1973.

Today, His Excellency’s seven children are the shareholders of The Zubair Corporation, heading six divisions comprising of nearly 60 companies. Together, they continue driving the business forward, ensuring The Corporation remains a well-established name not only in Oman but throughout the region and internationally.
