1960's 1970’s 1980's 2000’s Present
Al-Ansari Bhasin Trading Company was founded in 1954 by Mr. Mohan Lal Bhasin, who came by ship from Bombay in 1950 and got his first job at the National Bank of Kuwait in 1953. Al-Ansari Bhasin Trading Company was first named Al-Garami Trading, a small shop in Kuwait City that sold products such as clothing, towels, bedsheets, fabrics, etc. When the company changed its name to Moon Store in the 1960s, it progressed into a tailoring shop, and we included tailoring materials as one of our featured products. With this, the company then started to engage in government contracts, we were successful in landing our first contract with the Ministry of the Interior for the provision of their uniforms. This resulted in the provision of made-to-order or ready-made uniforms to government employees working in the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Interior, and Kuwait Oil Company.
In the 1970s, we finally changed the company's name to Al Ansari Bhasin Trading Company. It started to become more popular in the market and gained the confidence of numerous customers that were working in various ministries throughout Kuwait. We entered military wear, selling equipment from head wear to boots, while also expanding our product line to include school uniforms, sports-wear and industrial-wear. Additionally, we opened our doors to servicing and accommodating walk-in consumers at our second location, Hawally.
Our willpower and passion growing, the 1990s saw the opening of a walk-in one-stop shop in our third location, Riggae. While the expansion of our retail took place, we also secured various government contracts. The company had now assisted and supplied The National Guards, Army Special Forces, Police Special Forces, Ruler Guards with a new camouflage color pattern and design. With the dedication of our loyal team, the business was approaching its full potential and establishing itself both nationally and internationally.
In the early 2000s, Al Ansari and Bhasin Co. had now gained the reputation as one of the leading suppliers of uniform, gear and accessories to numerous government departments in Kuwait. As the government contracts increased, we needed to expand our retail operations to provide an after-sales support system for this. Two additional stores were opened in Kuwait, where tactical clothing wear and accessories were introduced as a new product line. In addition, we acquired several exclusive brand relationships with companies like Condor, Cytac, Reebok, Helikon-Tex and Pentagon. In 2012, we launched "Resistant Tactical Gear," our first in house brand, which introduced a line of high-end outdoor gear, apparel, and equipment. This was made possible by our loyal relationships we had built with several suppliers across the world.
Our perseverance and ongoing dedication has been demonstrated in our long yet fulfilling journey. From a small garment shop in the old market in Kuwait City, it is now the well-renowned Al Ansari Bhasin Trading Co. Our four retail stores (Hawally, Mangaf, Riggae, and Jahra) are selling over 3,500 items, As a business, we have developed over time, and we will continue to do so. With technology advancing, we are excited to announce the launch of our new e-commerce website.
