One day in 1980 four entrepreneurs, young and close relatives gentlemen named: Mohammed Suliman Al Yahya, Othman Abdulrahman Al Hosaini, Abdullah Suliman Al Yahya and Hamad Abdulrahman Al Hosaini, met to discuss the possibilities of starting their own business. They dreamed to put their mark on the growth of their country.
Thinking was based on having a project which help in food security, where the Saudi government seeks to develop agriculture sector at that time. These entrepreneurs agreed to participate in the national agricultural development project. So, they decided to develop the first brick for this project by starting their farm project in Sajir city.
To realize the dream that was created in the imagination of each one of them, they faced the problem of choosing a unique name for this edifice. The name was chosen (AKEL), the old name of the city of Ashikar, the ancient city in the Al Washm area, located 200 km in the north-west of Riyadh city. Since then, the glory of that city from which the name was chosen, the bricks continued to be built on top of each other, diversifying the business into a company that develops from the agricultural field to intervene in the field of construction sector such as low voltage panels, pumps and boosters.
