Our Foundation

Gulf International Trading Group was founded by one of the UAE's most prominent and innovative legacies. Mr. Khalid Ibrahim Mohammad Al Midfa's foresight to offer the region a resource for ecologically friendly building solutions was driven by generations of innovators and leaders from the Al Midfa family. The Al Midfa family's origins are deeply rooted in the Gulf Region, accrediting them as the most famous traders in Sharjah, one of the UAE's largest emirates. Known for their distribution of goods that included exotic fruits, dates, rice, and perfumes throughout Asia and Africa, the Al Midfa family proudly celebrates its family tree comprised with some of the UAE's most prominent social, cultural, political, and economic figures. Gulf International Trading Group's Chairman embraced the visions, successes, relationships, and values set forth by his family to drive his entrepreneurial spirit. Both his grandfather, HE Ibrahim Bin Muhamed Al Midfaa, and his father, Mr. Mohammad bin Ibrahim Al Midfaa, enjoyed many successes that would fuel Mr. Khalid Al Midfa's vision for the future of the region.


The Al Midfa Legacy

HE Ibrahim Bin Muhamed Al Midfaa is famous for having started the UAE's first newspaper as well as a private library that stands today as an icon in the UAE for cultural and national awareness, notable for its wind tower that remains a symbol to the region. HE Ibrahim Bin Muhamed Al Midfaa quickly became a trusted member of society, serving as the senior advisor for Sheikh Sultan Bin Saqr Al Qassimi, Saqr Bin Sultan al Qassimi and was selected to serve as a private consultant for Sheikh Khalid Bin Mohamed Al Qassimi and sheikh Doctor Sultan Bin Mohammad al Qassimi. Mr. Mohammad Bin Ibrahim Al Midfaa followed in his father's footsteps, appointed by H.H. Sheikh Khalid Bin Mohammad Al Qassimi as the Ruler Representative of the Eastern Portion of Sharjah at the young age of 22. He also served as Director General of Civil Defense of Sharjah. Mr. Khalid Al Midfa leads a legacy that nurtures trust, honor, ambition, and deeply rooted relationships with the regions leaders and scholars. These values have been an inspiring and motivating force in the continual success of Gulf International Trading Group, made possible by Mr. Khalid Mohammad Ibrahim Al Midfa's desire to continue setting milestones and making history as a member of the Al Midfa family.

From a young age, Mr. Khalid Al Midfa began to envision a world of sustainable development, particularly for his region which was rapidly evolving into the lucrative and promising market that it is today. Years of research would help him target and capitalize on the most important issues plaguing the Middle East.
