At Sheik Lisha Ltd. quality and customer satisfaction is top priority. The Company continues to go the extra mile in ensuring that customers get value for money and has recently restructured its sales by marketing work force as it plans to expand further into the new product lines and foreign market.The company recognizes that a huge part of their success is attributed to its employees, who continue to be committed and dedicated in a fast paced environment.

Although the company is successful, it has some challenges. For example, a constant labour force. A key factor is the recruitment of the right individuals to perform productively on a daily basis and to ensure we only retain performance at their best. Another issue of great importance is the shortage of foreign currency from time to time. Access to the most basic trading commodity is a necessity for growth in any business.

Throughout its 65 years of establishment, Sheik Lisha Ltd. has built a reputation amongst the industry and has always strived to uphold its history by continuing to provide our customers with quality products, competitive prices and excellent service.
