The company traces its proud history back to 1968 when the late Ahmed Abdulla Al-Sharhan was first granted a license to produce aerosol products under the trade name of AL-Sharhan Aerosol Manufacturing Establishment.

Very much a visionary, and a man with an acute sense of business, he devoted himself to the project and in March 1969 began the production of Insecticides and Air fresheners under the brand name of KWIK. A few months later he was Granted the Liquid Detergent Manufacturing License to produce the LULU brand. This swiftly became the most popular household brand on the market and even today the people of Kuwait still refer to any dishwashing liquid as LULU – the Trust mark of success for any brand.

In 1976, the factory was upgraded and a new facility was opened with the latest Aerosol production line from Pamasol. This replaced the old Aero fill machine which not only handled the increasing demand for KWIK aerosol products but also ensured that customer orders are consistently met on time – a standard of service that the company had become known for.

In 1994 this thriving operation developed further and was transformed into a company with limited liability, now owned by the heirs of the late Ahmed Abdullah Al Sharhan.

In 1996, Al Sharhan Industries took another great step forward when it moved to a multimillion-dollar investment facility. This new site, boasting 20,000 square meter perimeter area, ideally located in the Industrial Area of Shuaiba, Kuwait. The state-of-the-art facility was equipped with 10 modern production lines allowing Al Sharhan to meet ever-increasing demand for its products and services.

For the future, Al Sharhan continues to grow, developing new products and services with the same spirit of hard work and vision that has seen it succeed for almost five decades. Whatever the future holds, we know it will be good – and we warmly invite you to join us in writing the next chapter...
