The development of OGER INTERNATIONAL

Oger International is a French construction engineering company, formed in 1978, and with international subsidiaries.

1950

OGER, launched in 1950 by Marcel OGER, was one of the flagship general companies in France.

1968

Bought in 1968 by the CAMPENON BERNARD group, OGER had specialised in the construction of high-rise buildings. OGER’s activities were strongly affected by the building recession, as a result of the 1973 oil crisis.

1977

1977 marked a turning point: OGER embarked on the construction, within nine months, of a luxury hotel in Saudi Arabia. This operation was a complete success, and enabled OGER to establish its reputation in the Middle East.

1979

On July 31, 1979, Rafic HARIRI bought into OGER, with particular interest in the company’s operations in Saudi Arabia.

This purchase created two companies :
OGER INTERNATIONAL, a French engineering company ;
SAUDI OGER, a general company in Saudi Arabia.
