Heritage

150 years of
transforming Oman

By embracing innovation and change, our purpose has been to unlock the potential of people, businesses, and the country. As we continue to evolve and expand, we remain committed to this 150-year-old purpose.

In 1870, a father and son set out on a voyage that they had made before. Merchants by profession, the duo would often sail from their hometown of Mandvi in Kutch on the Indian western seaboard to Zanzibar and from there to Muscat, Oman. They would sell and barter the goods they brought in at each port, which would then be sold at their next destination. However, this 1870 voyage was different.

Before setting sail, the father and son had decided the son would stay back at one of the ports where trade had been profitable, and hospitality had been gracious. The father was Ramdas Thackersay, the son was Khimji Ramdas, and the port was Oman. Little did they know that this decision would change the course of the simple trading that they practiced at the time to something far, far beyond.
