Afifi Group

Our Road
to the Top

It began in 1927 when the Afifi family farmed their lands next to the village of Sepphoris, near Nazareth. As agricultural production grew, the family bought a truck to transport their goods more efficiently and quickly to the large port cities of Haifa and Jaffa. Many of the other farmers sent their produce on the truck too. Very soon, the villagers realized it was more comfortable and faster to use the vehicle to travel to neighboring cities and markets, and they were happy to pay for the ride.

Responding to the growing demand, the family installed benches in the back of the truck.
By 1932, the family had purchased its first bus – a turning point that laid the foundations for the development of their business into the fields of transportation, travel and tourism.
Then, as today, customer service was our guiding principle – one that dictates the Afifi Group's business philosophy. What began as a modest family initiative evolved over the years into the robust and prosperous Afifi Group, which encompasses over 20 companies engaged in transportation, tourism, hotels, information technology, investments, real estate and international trade.
The group owns more than 900 buses, two hotels and many real estate properties, and has around 2,000 employees who identify with the organization and feel a sense of belonging and pride.
The Group's long accumulation of experience in these various fields enables us to offer unique products and a variety of services at the very highest level. But we are not about to rest on our laurels.
We challenge ourselves every day, searching for new methods and technologies, to ensure we remain our customers' first choice.

A Message from
our Chairman

 

One man with a truck and a dream in 1927 has developed decades later into a large conglomerate that encompasses over 20 companies operating with great success in the fields of transport, tourism, hospitality, trade, information technology, investments and real estate, both in Israel and abroad. Today, the Afifi Group owns more than 900 buses and has around two thousand employees. It is a privately owned business proudly managed by the family's third and fourth generations.

The Afifi Group has overcome the many challenges it faced along the way, and the results speak for themselves – both in the group’s expanding range of activities and in its rapid growth, especially over the past decade.
As a family business, we have always shown the highest levels of commitment and loyalty to our staff. We cherish them as our ultimate resource, helping them to develop their skills and become active and positive members of society. In this way, we hope to instill in them a strong belief in the company’s business values.

I wish to thank our business associates, who have believed in us and shared the journey with us, and our customers, who rely on our services and trust us to be there for them.
We look forward to the many challenges ahead and the dreams we have yet to realize. As the third-generation Chairman Of the Board, I invite you to consider partnering with us in business ventures in the fields of transport, tourism, trade, real estate investments and IT developments related to transportation and tourism. We have a wealth of experience and a proven track record, and the opportunities are substantial.

Sincerely,
Ahmed Afifi,
Chairman,
