The history of Binladin begins in 1931 During the Kingdom’s early years, under the reign of King Abdul Aziz Al Saud, my late father , Mohammed Binladin founded the Mohammad Binladin Organization as a general contracting company. Binladin’s history and growth intertwined with that of the kingdom’s ever since. As Saudia Arabia prospered, developed and became active on the international front, Binladin evolved simultaneously. Under the leadership of my late brother, Salem M. Binladin, the company’s activities expanded from road works and constructions to diversified activities with numerous offshoots worldwide. To prepare for an ambitious and more active international role, the Saudi Binladin Group (SBG) was set up to incorporate various Binladin companies under a single association.
