With customers and partners in EMEA as well as growing interest from APAC we are uniquely placed to offer first mover advantage to international partners. For those seeking to work with and invest in a local partner with a track record for ethical and sustainable business, look no further than HGC.

Our Vision

Our Vision

“Ethical and fair business, with prosperity for all stakeholders”

– Hufan Group of Companies

At Hufan Group of Companies (HGC) our vision is to ethically and sustainably incorporate innovative and cutting-edge products and services in traditionally low-tech sectors often exploited due to lack of security and international awareness. We are actively combating this by engaging transparently with reputable national and international partners.

Recently Somalia has been experiencing improved security & stability, economic growth, increased employment opportunities and enhanced quality of life. HGC is committed to further contributing to and stimulating the competitive market place. Which in turn leads to an increase in wealth creation and social prosperity for all. We will conscientiously uphold national interest, maintain equal opportunities, and preserve corporate responsibility on solid ethical business practices.

We are dedicated to the development and well-being of our employees as well as strict abidance to the rules and regulations of the land.

  3. Minerals Oil & Gas

  4. Construction & Energy
