OUR HISTORY

OUR FIRST STEPS ON THE MARKET

Discovery Group history dates back to 1982 when Mr. Abdulrahim Janahi created the Abderahim Mohamed Ali Janahi establishment in Manama, Bahrain. Firstly, located in the heart of Manama market, Mr. Janahi rented a 45 square traditional shop where most of the trade was occurring. Trading exclusively wholesales deals by importing goods from East Asia, the reputation of the company started to rise. Gradually having to respond more to the market demand, the volume of import increased between the establishment and its suppliers. Always being a family business, the founder children’s started to participate in the corporate growth.

CONTINUOUS DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH

By the time, Mr. Abdulrahim Janahi opened his second shop in Riffa; the company name was changed to Discovery. A year later, in 2003, the Group was strengthened by the launch of the Real Estate division. In 2007, a new partnership was created by the launch of our architecture offices, Fourth Dimension Engineering, directed by Mr. Anwar Al Rayyes. The Construction & Property management was launched as a third business pillar in 2008, which aligns to the corporate vision: To be one of the most inspiring group and have a significant impact on people’s lifestyles. Simultaneously, the Aluminum division of the group was launched.
