Garant Holding, formerly ZQAN Holding, is composed of 33 companies with business in every sector from telecommunications to construction. Headquartered in Baku, but with offices in Geneva, Dubai and London, Garant Holding is working to create a brighter future for the young country of Azerbaijan. They have begun this process with the creation of 7,200 jobs, an attention to best business practices and the nurturing of a socially responsible business atmosphere. Their commitment is, first and foremost, to the Azeri people. This corporation’s mission is to make use of its country’s human resources as much as possible.
Founded by Azeri businessman, Anar Mammadov, in 2005, Garant Holding has become an international leader in trade. Azerbaijan is still a very new country and its economy is a work in progress. With that in mind, Garant Holding’s mission is to grow as a world leader in commerce. With its broad focus and many holdings, the corporation is bringing many industries to Azerbaijan. Garant Holding is providing jobs, training and social aid to its citizens through its continually developing and flourishing business ventures. The company, its holdings and their employees are striving to take the lead in a variety of business sectors with the admirable goal of economic freedom for all Azeri people and their proud nation.
They are working toward this goal by creating jobs and working to be as culturally and socially responsible as possible with attention to ethics, integrity and honesty in all aspects of their business. In January 2014, the company received the ISO 9001: 2008 International Quality Certificate, which is awarded by the International Certification Organisation and only after a thorough investigation of the activity of the company and its practices. It is clear that this is a corporation with a true commitment to integrity and ethical business practices.
It is easy for large companies to become detached from the citizens of their countries, but Garant Holding works hard to stay connected to the Azeri people. An example of this is the Iftar event held last year. Employees of 9 of the corporation’s holdings participated in the Ramadan celebration by passing out water and meals and sharing the celebration and joy of this religious and cultural holiday with citizens from a variety of backgrounds. Garant Holding is a corporation with a heart, and in its heart it holds a great love and loyalty to the people of Azerbaijan.
