The roots of the ANTAKI Holding GPPK were firmly planted in 1947, when the family business founder, Gabriel S. Antaki, officially registered his company in his name.
The company was initially set up as a sole proprietorship dealing mainly in the photographic field of business; in addition to have enjoyed a slow but continuous growth until the break of the Civil War in 1975 in Lebanon.
In 1975, Selim and Farid Antaki joined the firm and continued in their father’s footsteps by reinforcing the family business; and establishing a number of companies in the years to come. Expansion came when they acquired the sole distributorship of a number of brands in the sectors of electronics, communication and home appliances.
Fast forward to 2006, Selim Antaki established his own holding ANTAKI GPPK S.A.L aimed to handle different operations. The name ANTAKI GPPK came from the initials of Selim Antaki’s own children, Gaby, Pamela, Paola and Karl Antaki who are contributing assets to the company today and work for its continuous growth.
Today, the Holding manages and finances several companies who boast a distinguished portfolio of brands in different sectors. The companies are recognized for their strong and established network of distribution, retail, market, manufacturing and services knowledge.
