History

INDEX Machine Since 1928

In 1928, when Dubai was a small fishing, pearl diving and trading village, the late Sheikh Shafei Al Madani and his son, Sheikh Hanafi, started a family business of tailoring and textile trading in Deira Old Souq, the largest market in the region. Throughout the years, Sheikh Hanafi’s son, Abdul Salam, worked closely and tirelessly with him to learn the family business that resulted in the establishment of INDEX Trading & Investment in 1983.

The journey has not stopped there, as in 2006, Abdul Salam Al Madani established INDEX Holding in the most prominent and promising cities in the world, with a seal of commitment to be one of the leading corporate companies in the region focusing on healthcare, business management, investment and trading. Since then, INDEX’s vision and mission worked in harmony to be one of the most active contributors to the growth of the national economy.

Over the past years, INDEX has expanded its list of companies and partnered with the leaders of the world to serve clients with high professionalism, greater enthusiasm and innovative & revolutionary services thereby offering them “a memorable experience”.
