Commonly known as the largest private company operating in Libya.


HB Group was founded in 1952 by Ibrahim Husni Bey, primarily as a logistics company. The company diversified rapidly over the years, gradually modifying and subsequently developing its core businesses over a number of sectors.

The HB Group is formed of a number of independent yet associated entities in which Husni Bey family members have a significant stake, operating across multiple industrial sectors including:

  • Fast Moving Consumer Goods
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Real Estate & Construction
  • Shipping & Logistics
  • Oil Services
  • Travel & Tourism
  • Financial Services  

Operations are predominantly based in Libya, typically in cooperation with international partners, but an increasing proportion of activities exist and are developing in Europe, Middle East and wider North Africa.

HB Group’s strategy has always been to develop large, sustainable companies in chosen sectors and geographies. This strategy remains unchanged and underpins the continued development of the Group.
