Our Businesses

Addis Ayele


ADAG was born in the mind and heart of the founder and owner of Addis Ayele and his spouse Hiwot Asnake. The starting point was the so-called Simple Business Ideas in the Mind, a historical initial stage for implementing potential project ideas with the aim of creating the business opportunity in Nazareth and the nearby society as a whole.

Businessman Addis Ayele was awarded the opportunity from his living God to commence small business activities with the support of immediate family in cooperation with the local Government. So, he acquired or started up enormous business activities in order to carry out both in and outside of Nazareth.

To create a suitable structure to bring together all these different operations, Addis Ayele formed the ADAG International PLC in 2005 with the help of his life partner and major shareholder of Hiwot Asnake. The strategy was to let each business unit develop according to its own potential, but also to work with each other as much as possible to create synergy effects. Each business unit has the goal to become best in their own industry while at the same time being a natural part of the ADAG Business Group in the coming years.

The strategy has been a success because today ADAG is a leading player with operations in various cities of the country and earns an annual turnover of over 200 million Ethiopian Birr. All these well-established and highly organized business units were brought together in an integral and mutually constructive alliance.


ADAG is headed by a dynamic, motivated and efficient team currently led by the Manager, Mr Addis Ayele. He is assisted by Mr. Moti Irana (Assistant Operational Manager) and Mrs Meron (Marketing Manager) and the permanent staff 50 and Temporary staff 100.  ADAG believes in a hands-on approach on all trading, manufacturing and others business activities.
