Our Story

Jean-Charles Hameau

SV Companies was founded in the United Arab Emirates in 2005.  A rapidly-growing pet population created a demand for premium pet nutrition, veterinary equipment and pharmaceuticals. Today, SV Companies has become one of the GCC’s leading distributors, supplying more than 9000 products across the region. Expansion has led to offices and warehouse facilities in the UAE, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain.

From humble beginnings (a 3000 sqft warehouse facility, single van and 3-men operation), we now have state-of-the-art logistics solutions to distribute an extensive portfolio throughout the Gulf countries.  We move 8,000 tons of goods annually through our 100,000 sqft warehouses.  Our facilities include a range of temperature controlled areas for chilled and frozen food storage and separate dedicated stores for pharmaceutical products. These facilities have the capacity to hold over 10,000 pallets effectively managed by our Warehouse Management System. Currently, our 75 vehicle-strong fleet guarantees smooth day-to-day operations.

One of our core strengths is our high service level (over 95%).  We pride ourselves on our reputation in the market for reliability, fair pricing, knowledge and efficiency.  Our compliance team ensures our business and imports meet the registration requirements with the government regulation bodies in all our operational regions/countries.

At SV Companies our greatest investment is in our team, uniting expertise across multiple industries. With 25 languages spoken across our organization, our dedicated team members endeavor to deliver outstanding service and lead the field in customer care and scientific education. In return, continued professional development and excellent staff retention set us apart from our competitors. 

As industry leaders, our veterinary professionals conduct regular seminars and workshops to train our customers and partners in the latest innovations.

We serve a broad customer base which includes specialized pet-shops, veterinary clinics, boarding kennels, garden centers, breeders, zoos, private wildlife collections, supermarkets and hypermarkets. In addition to these, we work closely with government institutions such as the canine police force and army.  Our client list extends to Royal Palaces and public aquariums, taking our number of B2B accounts upwards of 600.

We are always seeking out new products and services worldwide to enhance our assortment.  Meeting the needs of our veterinary partners and pet owners remains our top priority.  Nutritional, pharmaceutical and technological advances mean the veterinary landscape is constantly developing : our role is to ensure we can offer our animals the care they deserve.

Knowledge is Our Strength, Excellence is Our Motto.
