Mr. Hajibaba Message
Union is Strength!
Directors, investors, and entrepreneurs in the private sector are recommended to seek collaboration and law in business. Individualistic behavior in business without consulting the competent authority is doomed to failure. Do always abide by the Rule of Law.

All companies established and operated by Mr. Hajibaba in Iran are the first of their kind, and similar companies were established later on their example. A perfect example is Iran Ferrosilice Company, which was established in Semnan in 1982 as the first private-sector producer of ferrosilicon in Iran. In its wake, 16 more ferrosilicon factories have been established thus far.
