International Traders (Middle East) Ltd. Is the first company in Dubai to receive a decree of incorporation from His Highness Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, regarded as the Father of Modern Dubai.
The Decree was issued five years after the company was founded in 1953 in Dubai, deriving growth impetus from the open-hearted approach of His Highness Sheikh Rashid to new enterprises.
Founded when Dubai was part of the Trucial States, ITL Group built its business-base from humble beginnings. Initially, textiles were the principal trade of the company. With the oil boom and the socio-economic prosperity that accompanied, ITL Group moved into consumer electronics- one of the first companies in the region to do so. Thus was born the Cosmos era- a new chapter in the retail sector of Dubai.
Since then, ITL Cosmos Group has consolidated its pole position in consumer electronics, IT and PC products, telecommunications, home and kitchen appliances, photographic products, business equipment, data and storage products, clocks and watches, personal grooming products, household products, office stationery, textiles, linen and luggage, food and personal banking
Today the group is active in manufacture, distribution, retail and financial services remaining at the forefront of the marketplace bringing the latest products and services to the customer. The Group’s success is a story of strife and reward, and the company’s growth is a direct result of the growth of the Emirates itself.
ITL Cosmos Group is synonymous with fair business practices, ethics quality service and commitment to society.
