Our Story


ABOUT US

Founded in 1898, Overseas AST was a major construction company based in Europe. In 1959 Overseas AST established operations in Dubai and in 1964 the business was officially incorporated by a Ruler’s Decree.

In 1983, two prominent UAE businessmen, Khalifa Juma Al Nabooda of Dubai and Abdulla Mohammed Al Mazrouei of Abu Dhabi, acquired a 51% share in the business. They acquired the remaining shareholding from the parent company in 2003.

Since the successful completion of the landmark Al Maktoum bridge in Dubai 1962, Overseas AST now operates as a proudly UAE owned company with its Head Office in Dubai and branch offices in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.
