Fala Group, a leading multinational family business, celebrated a decade of successful operations and accelerated growth in Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ).

Founded in 1997 by Ihsan Kerbaj, Fala Group started its business journey in the UAE and swiftly expanded across Syria and Canada. Over the past decade, Fala Group’s operations in Ras Al Khaimah, supported by its strong leadership and robust operational strategies, have witnessed exceptional growth.

In 2012, Fala Group set up with RAKEZ and made a strategic investment of over AED 200 million in a 40,000 m2 facility in Al Ghail. Within a few years, the Group developed an asphalt plant, labour accommodations, offices, and a large fleet of trucks and heavy equipment, including a full in-house garage for their maintenance.

This strategic location allowed Fala Group to significantly expand its operations and competitiveness across the northern emirates. Since 2012, Fala Group’s infrastructure division’s workforce has doubled to nearly 2,000 employees across the UAE alone, successfully contributing to some mega projects such as the extension of Emirates Road, Mebreh mountain road, Yabsa truck Road, and the upgrading of Etihad Road.

Fala’s Chairman, reflected on his company’s journey, “I landed in the UAE in 1982 with just AED 50 in my pocket, and a dream to build my own company one day. Through honesty, pure clean intentions, hard work, and consistency, we have grown beyond what I could have imagined. This is the ethos that drives Fala Group today.” Kerbaj added, “As we celebrate this milestone, we also acknowledge and appreciate RAKEZ’s unwavering support since 2012. We are eager to strengthen this relationship further in the pursuit of new growth opportunities and operational excellence.”
