It all started in 1910 by the late Georges N. Chammas, a successful young entrepreneur who left a huge impact in the fuel industry.
We proudly carry his legacy with an uninterrupted record of growth, continuity and profitability.
Georges N. Chammas was 13 years old when he found his calling. He was looking to deep dive into a successful career as his entrepreneurial spirit was constantly boiling with ideas. He found the perfect product! “one that you continuously need, which you can’t return or exchange: OIL!” Georges founded ETS. Georges N. Chammas in 1910.
Shortly after its inception, it became the largest importer and marketer of coal in the Middle East, at a time when coal was the major source of energy. Eventually, Ets. GNC made the transition to petroleum activities and was the first in 1924 to import bulk refined products into the area.
Today’s, the Chammas Corporate Group’s activities are in import, export, storage, trading, marketing, transportation and distribution of a full range of petroleum products in Lebanon. In addition, we actively promote, sell, support and distribute goods and services from major international manufacturers in the petroleum, computer, electronic, electrical equipment and retail industries.
