For over a century, the Kanoo family has been one of Bahrain’s foremost merchant dynasties.

Ziebart At the time of Ebrahim Khalil Kanoo’s birth in 1920, there were only two cars on the island of Bahrain, both owned by the Ruling family. Within a decade this had increased seventy-fold with the demands of oil exploration, despite the ravages of the Great Depression. In the years following World War II, Ebrahim established himself as a leading importer of automobiles and parts, securing in 1966 the sole authorized distributorship in Bahrain of Toyota automobiles, industrial vehicles and related services.

Today, with more than 60 years of commitment to service excellence, E.K. Kanoo is universally acknowledged as one of the island’s automotive pioneers, developing and exceeding expectations in the automotive business. The next generation of the Kanoo family are now fully involved in the business and are building their careers, and the business, in the founder’s footsteps.
