And from year 1959 I started putting the goals and plans that the
establishment should follow. An essential goal was to provide the good,
the new, and the excellent service for consumers in the transportation
and fuel which the Saudi market lacked at that time.
After that, the establishment was directed into separating the
activities into divisions. In the early eighties the divisions were
transformed into specialized establishments and in late eighties they
were transformed into companies and AL-TAS’HELAT , by Allah’s willing

different fields and various activities keeping pace with the economic
development and industrial boom in our lovely kingdom.
The truthful help and the care of the government of the Custodian of the
Two Holy Mosques to the merchants and to commerce had a great effect in
the success of AL-TAS’HELAT Group and its development.
