Letter From CEO.
For over a century, the Abou Ghazaleh family legacy in the construction business has been a success story in the making. And today, AG Vision Construction is a living testimony to this success, which has been achieved thanks to the solid relationships we continue to maintain and develop with our team, clients, and partners across the value chain. Four generations ago, Daher Abou Ghazaleh envisioned providing unique construction services by pioneering the import of cement to his homeland, Lebanon; and this vision for innovation is as eminent in our business model today as it was then. So we continue to seek uniqueness in all of our ventures through AG Vision’s expansive operations, which span a diverse line of construction, engineering, and consultancy services across a number of markets in the Middle East and Africa. With a long track record in Nigeria, one of our major focus markets, we have successfully and sustainably secured the financial and technical backing of multiple international players, from contractors to other bespoke service providers, who have in turn allowed us to take the lead on large-scale infrastructure projects including roads, bridges, dams, industrial parks, etc. As such, we share and support the Federal Government’s vision to develop the nation, open it up to the possibilities of reaching its full economic potential, and hence empower its people to achieve better living standards. Moreover, this is a vision we aim to bring to life in every market where AG Vision Construction operates, and in every market we aspire to enter over the longer term. Furthermore, for the purpose of concretizing our commitment to sustainability, AG Vision Co aims to be soon launching a Sustainability Program in order to support and assess the company’s practices with respect to its mission. This Program shall help us implement a number of practices throughout our operations that embrace sustainability while supporting the business in delivering outstanding results to our clients, emphasizing safety across all levels of service execution, and maintaining solid financial performance. These practices include – but are not limited to – the strict abidance to jobsite safety measures which eventually allow us to reduce the degree of cost pass-through to our clients, the initiation of voluntary recycling programs in our administrative and operational facilities, and the promotion of technologies that raise our clients’ awareness towards saving water and energy. Today, it is our promise to all of our contributors, as well as to the community, that we shall strive to uphold these core values at the forefront of every endeavor; and this will evidently materialize since all of us at AG Vision Construction have taken an active, enthusiastic role towards making it happen. Thank you for your continuous support. Faithfully yours, Tony Abou Ghazaleh President & CEO
