It was our Chairman Mr. Farouk Y Almoayyed’s business enterprising skills, acumen and loyalty towards his customers that brought in 1980 an Engineering and Management professional C.V. Ramana Murthy (CV) to join the group and deliver his entrepreneurial skills for the group that was ONE year old and embark on a remarkable journey that has spanned over three decades. In 1989, CV, as he is popularly known, seized the opportunity presented to him to demonstrate his technocratic skills to focus Almoayyed International Group (AIG) into a “customer oriented” enterprise backed with strong commercial expertise. AIG started as a technology company with its core activities in Information technology. It has since expanded into other supportive divisions in Office Equipment and Automation Systems, Infrastructure Provisioning and Fire & Safety divisions to address Bahrain’s growing demands. CV tasked himself in identifying leading international product suppliers and quality professionals to deliver on AIG’s promises.

Back in the '90s, as "The Internet and the mobile phone technology changed everything" AIG’s operations have moved into individual profit centers, staffed with long-term professional teams leading and maintaining AIG’s growth into a new millennium as a strong force to be reckoned with. It has been CV’s foresight to expand AIG divisions as regionally focused groups that lead AIG into its GCC expansion drive, offering its expertise and drawing strength from AIG Bahrain 25 year heritage.
In 2005 CV rolled out a new vision for Industrial Automation activities to meet the broader trends towards industrial segments in Bahrain and UAE simultaneously.
