After acquiring several years of experience, he established Stankoimport of Iran around 50 years ago in 1967. His great entrepreneurial spirit was the result of a 1,000 year old business tradition running in our family, since the time our ancestors owned caravans trading on the silk road.
Stankoimport of Iran is proud to have established three major subsidiaries by the names of: Mokarar Airlines, Kish Vitamin, and Iran Cash and Carry. Our heritage is one of innovation and disruption of the status quo in many industries. We put the customer first by bringing quality products to the market and never cutting corners when it comes to customer satisfaction.
