Beirut, June 19, 2017: Fattal Group, a leading distributor operating in the MENA, celebrated its 120-year anniversary by organizing a gala dinner at Hilton Habtoor Grand Hotel in Sin El Fil. The event hosted exclusively the company’s workforce whose members are “the main drivers of its success, and without whom nothing would have been possible”, said Mr. Hubert Fattal, CEO of Fattal Group.
2017 marks an important milestone for the Group who spent the past 12 decades developing its activities first in Syria, then Lebanon and the MENA region. On its 120-year anniversary, the company wished to pay tribute to the past, determined to conquer the future confidently.
