Al Khayyat Investments

"AKI is a partner with a lot of passion and focus on building brands."

Fouad Kadamani, Sales Manager – Gulf and Middle East, Arc International Cookware

Our organisational structure is a simple one. The Board of Directors defines the company's vision and its business development strategy. The Business Unit subsidiaries operate under their respective divisional heads. They share an infrastructure that is the backbone of the company.

Al Khayyat Investments' shared infrastructure provides its services to all the operating units. It ensures the same high professional standards are applied across all parts of the company. It has been achieved by substantial ongoing investment in physical facilities for Warehousing, Distribution and Logistics, based at Dubai Investment Park and in Abu Dhabi, and support services, in Finance, IT, Human Resources and Administration.

The strategic location at DIP gives us swift access to Jebel Ali Port & Free Zone, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman and all parts of the UAE. The temperature controlled warehouse, operating on the highest Quality Assurance levels, extends to over 300,000 sq.ft., storing more than 15,000 pallet positions.  It is equipped with a fire sprinkler system, and fire warning communications linked to the Civil Defence.  Security personnel and CCTV monitor the site 24/7.

A skilled and well-trained multinational staff totalling almost 250 in the Logistics section handles 150-175 incoming shipments (65% 20' and 40' FCL, 35% LCL) per month.

The facility operates over 100 vehicles equipped with GPS monitoring systems, delivering an average of 400 orders per day. We are currently achieving an on-time delivery rate of 96%.

With stock and inventory managed on Oracle's ERP system, each month we pick and deliver 1.5 million units from a range of 16,500 lines, to a customer base of 2500-3000, across the Middle East.
