How does Khalid Ali Alkharafi & Bros Co. guarantee its competitive edge in the market and increase its market share?

Khalid Ali Alkharafi & Bros Co. has been in the market since 1975 and has built a brand name within the local and regional markets as a result of its consistency, hard work, product quality, timing, and competitive prices.

Recruitment is based on talent, and all our employees are highly valued since they actively contribute to the organic growth and strength of the company.

How is Khalid Al Kharafi & Bros increasing its cost efficiency while increasing its production and quality levels?

Execution time is the main index for any project or production. Our management monitors this through weekly reports from our projects control department. Our R&D Department has significant weight in the company to help achieve these goals, and the rest of the company takes its reports into consideration and works on them. Our HR Department conducts an annual employee evaluation based on certain KPIs. Our numerous incentives also help our workforce be more efficient. We also conduct regular maintenance on our machinery and equipment within the applicable time constraints.

Which of your activities will experience the most significant growth in the coming year?

Our goal is to grow as a whole, given that we are one structure. We have the ability to design, supply, and build in terms of construction, as well as design, supply, and erect in terms of steel fabrication and space frames manufacturing. In addition, as part of the services we provide, we have our own galvanization plant. Therefore, predicting a significant growth in any of our sectors will depend on demand and the project pipeline in Kuwait.
