Welcome to Sabahi Group
Sabahi Group is a multi-industry corporate group headquartered in Tehran, the Islamic Republic of Iran. Through its member companies, Sabahi Group engages in trade, manufacturing, and engineering in a variety of economic and industrial sectors, operating as a conglomerate where the members of the Group engage in entirely different business activities under the umbrella of the same corporate parent. Chairman and founder of the Group, Mr. Nasser Sabahi, established its first company in 1980 as Sabahi Enterprises, which has been operating as a service company representing some of the most reputable global suppliers of raw materials to gain access to the Iranian food industry, chemical industry, packing equipment and peripheral components.
In 1985, the management of Sabahi Group established a factory, Micronized Powders Company of Iran in the city of Takistan in Qazvin province (approximately 200 km west of Tehran), with the objective of manufacturing calcium carbonate powders, pigment, and black and white masterbatch.
Having realized the need for an independent technical and engineering unit, Sabahi Group in 2005 established its third member under the name of Sabahi Engineering Tehran Company, which has been serving as its technical arm. The intention was to reinforce and expand the Group's capabilities in order to venture into new and different sectors of industry and trade, as micro/macro policies of the Iranian government demanded. This completed the Group's circle of trade, manufacturing, and engineering.
Acknowledging the importance of globalization, Sabahi Group officially became internationalized with the establishment of Sabahi Foreign Trade Co. Ltd. (Sabahi Dis Tic) in 2012 in Istanbul, Turkey. Sabahi Dis Tic engages in exclusive representation of foreign companies, trading, and engineering in the Turkish market.
Our quality is your solution
Message of Chairman
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Sabahi Group’s website, where you will learn about our business, morals, ethics, and working standards, along with the array of high quality products and services we provide to our clients.
Islamic Republic of Iran (Iran) is a giant importing destination for many varieties of products. Sitting on one of the largest oil and gas reserves in the world, Iran earns vast amount of money through the sale of these commodities, enabling it to finance its great importation needs. Industrialization of Iran, which began in 1949, and brought with it numerous foreign investors principally interested in the oil industry, has only magnified that need. Since then, the rapidly expanding economy of Iran has been in dire need of high level support and services that are scarce. In this environment, Sabahi Group has succeeded in establishing itself as a leading provider of technology, machinery, and raw materials that continue to fuel the growth of the economy.
I was raised in a family of merchants in the mid-20th Century, encouraged by my father to pursue a professional career and live as a technocrat. My upbringing positioned me perfectly to gain exposure to the world of merchants in the Iran market as well as to pursue multiple graduate degrees in fields of business and engineering and mathematics from some of the most renowned educational institutions. During my education in the United States, however, I always kept an eye on the Tehran Bazar. Upon my return to Iran in 1977, I established Sabahi Enterprises and expanded the family business of exporting dried fruits, which my father had established in 1935. My active presence in the Iran market enabled me to recognize the growing needs of the market, which led to the transition of my business form exporting dried fruits to exclusively representing manufacturers and producers of technology and raw materials.
Sabahi Enterprises initially concentrated its operations on providing raw materials for the Pharmaceutical, Food, Tire, and Hygiene industries. The company soon grew in the market to become an established brand, recognizable by its exceptional service and high-grade raw materials. In time, Sabahi Enterprises evolved to provide more products and services to the above mentioned industries, beginning with the introduction of packaging and other industry specific machinery. The vast success and popularity of Sabahi Enterprises provided the funds and a great leeway for me to start a manufacturing unit, Micronzed Powders Company of Iran (MPC), whose objective was to support Sabahi Enterprises’ mechanizing and representative activities. MPC produces micronized carbonate calcium, black pigments, black masterbatch, as well as white masterbatch. It sells these products in both international and national markets. My operations further grewin 2002 with the establishment of Sabahi Engineering Tehran Company. This company provides clients with services to build factories on a turnkey basis and also on defined partial participation agreements. SENG provides knowledgeable expertise, technology, and after-sale services to customers.
We have experienced a steady growth due to employment of well-designed strategies and policies. We continuously invest in our research for new markets and products to satisfy our customers. We seek to discover our customers needs and work endlessly to fulfill those needs. Transparency is the key to our relations with our customers. Transparency has been the main element of trust and success between our markets and us. Thanks to my brilliant and hardworking staff, we have become one of the most trusted and prominent companies in modern Iran.
