In 1984, two brothers, Mohamed Thowfeequ and Abdul Samad, started a small business under the name of ‘BRIGHT BROTHERS’, with the objective of servicing and repairing refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment in the Maldives.

What started as a small business has now grown and evolved to include the supermarket chain AGORA, which provides quality and affordable food and consumer products.

In the recent years, ARGO was established to provide fisheries, marine, and fuel services for fishermen and local communities.
