In the past, we held franchises from a number of international companies.

This decision proved extremely successful given the brilliant growth we have witnessed since. We have developed partnerships with a number of internationally renowned suppliers in order to remain ahead in terms of the technology we use, as well as the quality of our products.

What is Ugarit

Ugarit, the kingdom that had a golden past in administration, education, diplomacy, law, religion and economics between 16th and 13th centuries BC. It is located 16 km to the north of Lattakia, which is still Syria's principal port. It has been described as "probably the first great international port in history". From this site in ancient times, a good deal of the Eastern Mediterranean's trade with Mesopotamia was conducted; and much of the later Phoenician commercial and cultural expansion took its inspiration, not least through the development of the alphabet. Ugarit is the kingdom that gave humanity the first alphabet in the world. Experts have confirmed the connection between this alphabet and other alphabets in common use nowadays. This alphabet is still preserved on a clay tablet at the National Museum in Damascus. Our name, Ugarit, was inspired by this great ancient city most famous for trading.
