Soon, with Qatar witnessing unprecedented heights of economic growth, the company diversified into a spectrum of industrial activities, including contracting, building, imports and general trading of international products, in oil & gas, manufacturing, travel & tourism as well as the hospitality industry. This led to the birth of Darwish Trading Company, under the able guidance and management and ownership of Kassem Darwish Fakhro.
