In 1967, The firm was the first to introduce
color TV's in the market by locally modifying the existing Grundig Pal
sets into Pal/Secam (CCIR 625 Lines)
to comply with the Lebanese color system.
Aside from its main Business in the Electronic and Home appliances,
the firm was very active in many other specialized fields, to name a
few: Boulos Freres & Co. sal participated and won many tenders in the
area of telecommunication. The Lebanese Navy was supplied with DECCA
RADAR equipment and the first Radio-Taxi
company in the Middle East was established as a subsidiary of Boulos
Freres & Co. sal sal in the early sixties.
In 1963, Boulos Freres & Co. sal won the tender for the Central Bank
and consequently supplied "Banque Du Liban"
with complete american-made DIEBOLD
alarm and physical security products.
In 1965, Boulos Freres & Co. sal became the major shareholder of "La
Compagnie Libanaise du Telepherique et d'expansion touristique",
the first and unique aerial ropeway "cable car" in Lebanon and the Middle
East. It also includes restaurants and entertainment centers. This project
was executed by the german PHB company.
The firm was also involved in real estate
activities on its own account and as well within the framework of a
leading firm in this field, namely SODECO,
where Boulos Freres & Co. sal was a member of the board of Directors
for many years.
In 1974, Boulos Freres & Co. sal started local assembly of Grundig Televisions
with plans of constructing a 20,000 square- meter manufacturing plant
in the Daroun-Harissa region. In 1975, war in Lebanon broke up and the
plans for the manufacturing plant were dropped in 1980.
From 1993 until present:
For the last few years and following the start up of the re-construction
plan set by our Lebanese government Boulos Freres & Co. sal has expanded
their effort to the Hotel sector
for two main reasons:
1- Over the years, Boulos Freres & Co sal has been highly recognized
in the local market for its perfect service and solid experience in
the electronics field. The hotels which were the first industrial sector
to re-structure, were looking for a partner which can provide them with
both excellent products and service. Boulos Freres & Co sal was there
to meet that need and is of course committed to do so in the future.
2- Grundig developed in the early 90's a revolutionary interactive system
which was successfully introduced to many hotels worldwide; today, with
over 300,000 TV hotel rooms equipped with Grundig TV's. Boulos Freres
& Co. sal have installed over 90% of the hotels in Lebanon since 1993
please check the reference list for more details. Boulos Frères and
Co. once again proved that it sets forth new standards in the hotel
In 1998, Boulos Freres & Co. sal won the tender for the new extension
of Central Bank and consequently supplied once more "Banque
Du Liban" with complete american-made DIEBOLD
physical security products. This tender was mainly won because of thirty
five years of satisfaction (in the old building), the confidence in
Boulos Freres & Co.'s service and maintenance team and of course the
quality of the products and the competetive price. The significance
of the number and the caliber of the vault doors installed in the new
building is unique in the Middle East and the world: Ten (10) Class
3 (the toughest security UL label) Vault doors of 5,000 Kg each have
been successfully installed in one single building.
