United Andalusia Trading Inc. (UAT) was established in 2009 by two American educated Jordanian friends and schoolmates who each had almost two decades of intensive work experience with 10 businesses that are owned and managed at one point of time in the Middle East.


Being third generation businessmen in the Middle East brings a vast network, knowledge and experience in getting things done in this part of the world. We are on the ground, and have been for years; we speak the language and understand the mentality. Our huge network spreads in all different sectors and agencies in the region. These are all resources that can immediately become part of our team whenever needed.
