How everything has started

The Foundation

Established in 1985 by Founder Mr. Manohar Lahori, Palmon Group is one of the longest-standing manufacturing, retail and logistics companies in the UAE. Mixing their knowledge of the Middle East with their expertise in specific industries, over the last 30 years Palmon Group has gained numerous awards, recognition, and certificates of appreciation for its role in the growth of the garment industry in the UAE.

After meeting with Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem in 1984 when stopping off in Dubai’s Jebel Ali, Mr. Manohar Lahori decided to open a factory in the UAE. Mr. Sulayem had been charged by the late Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, with the task to launch a selection of companies around the Jebel Ali manmade harbour area, that would then fuel great trade links with other countries.

Setting up the Palmon Group in Dubai the following year, the company has since gone from strength to strength, with Mr. Lohari has been recognized with various esteemed awards, including being on the Forbes List for Top Indian Leaders in the Arab World, Arabian Business Top Leaders, Indian Power List and Top Indian Businessmen in the GCC. Branching out to much more than its original core business of clothes manufacturing, the group now has over 1000 employees across 12 companies.
