Ten years ago, a trust-based partnership was forged between Soud Al Mana and KRG Pillai with a vision to provide services with professionalism, integrity and an undiluted focus on customer’s needs in Qatar’s booming economy. Thus was born Progressive with a mission to provide exceptional, high-quality service for Projects, Catering and Trading to businesses in order to help them achieve success in their core business.
Progressive opened its doors in May 2008 with 30 employees in a 100 sq.ft office on Salawa road, with initial services in Catering and CampSupport.
At the heart of maintaining a motivated work-force is good, nutritious food. Guided by this philosophy, Progressive Catering began serving a wonderful culinary experience to its clients with a wide array of world cuisine including Arabic, Indian, Filipino, African and Continental.
Today, our catering division serves not only the industrial sector, remote sites and conferences, but also provides outdoor and event catering, and continues to excel in its culinary offerings. With an aim to support our clients in managing their operations efficiently, Progressive has been a dependable provider of camp support services such as laundry and housekeeping.
Within a year of launching, Progressive expanded into 2 more verticals: Building Materials Trading, Manpower & Project Support Services.
Launched in 2010, our Trading Division dealt with products related to Civil Construction, MEP, Structural Fabrication and Interior Decorations. Over the years Progressive Trading has steadily grown into a one-stop shop for our exclusive in-house brands, as well as more than 4000 quality products sourced from India, China, UK, Germany, Taiwan, Thailand, Pakistan, Singapore.

In 2017, Progressive responded to Qatar Government’s clarion call for self-sufficiency in food products following the siege. With the launch of our Food Trading Division, we are well-placed to provide high-quality staple food products.
