Shaikh Muktar is a first generation entrepreneur, who has carved a niche for him self with his dynamism and success. What began in Shaikh Muktars fathers shop in 1978 laid the ground for this revolutionary man. Displaying exceptional vision, Shaikh Muktar bought his first piece of equipment– a wheel loader while still in high school. Reinvesting the profits from its rental and use, he rapidly built up a fleet of trucks and then heavy equipment, which led to his diversification into mining, infrastructure and construction.

That vision statement to deliver happiness to the world has drawn new and repeat customers to the company. He wanted to run his own business and be in control of his own destiny.

Any crusade requires optimism and the ambition to aim high. SM Group tell the story of how Shaikh Muktar armed with his creativity and passion but no business training built an empire. The only asset he had was his own determination that would help him going until he became so embroiled that quitting was no longer a possibility.

Today the SM Group under the stewardship of Shaikh Muktar as the Chairman and Managing Director of the group has interest in Mining, Infrastructure, Construction, Automobile, Logistics and Hospitality services with operations that span the globe.
