In 2014, the Distribution & Marketing Company Limited (DMC) was created as a legal entity in Saudi Arabia. However, since 2006, the concept behind DMC, known as the Commercial Group (CG), was part of Ali Zaid Al Quraishi & Brothers' (AZAQ's) internal organizational structure. CG was formed after a strategic decision to bring all of AZAQ's commercially driven companies under one management. This year AZAQ decided to take that model a step further and in setting up DMC, show a clear distinction between AZAQ's governance and its commercial operations.
DMC consists of the following companies: Distribution & Marketing Company - Operations, Distribution and Marketing Company – Retail, Al Quraishi Marketing Company, Al Sabah Trading & Contracting Company, Office Work Solutions, Al Shula General Trading Company, UAE, and Al Quraishi Trading Company, Kuwait.
DMC's creation has resulted in the streamlining of all support functions for AZAQ's commercial operations in order to create synergies and efficiencies, while eliminating redundancies. Consequently, continually updated best practices are standard throughout all companies managed within DMC, enhancing customer service, controlling costs and encouraging targeted growth. Look for further expansion and acquisitions as part of DMC's ongoing development.
