✔ When Galaxy Group was founded? Who are the founders?
Our corporate history traces back to 1999, from which point on the Galaxy Group of Companies of today has been formed step by step, overcoming multitudes of challenges along the way. In a 22-year span, we have managed to expand and diversify our business portfolio, establish brands beloved by customers, enter and innovate a variety of industries. Our companies have become leaders in their respective industries, setting new benchmarks and standards for others to follow suit, whilst maintaining the characteristics unique to them.
While Galaxy Group serves as one of the biggest conglomerates in Eastern Europe, behind the image of a multi-industry, successful corporation hides the journey of hard work, trials and tribulations, failures that are masked by the eventual outcome. Before forming Galaxy Group of Companies, Gurgen and Artyom Khachatryans and their cousin Aram Khachatryan were just young brothers who aspired to be entrepreneurs. They tried their hands at starting multiple small businesses in their youth. Worked hard, had successful cases, failures too, but those success cases defined all that we have known today as Galaxy.
However, among the many feats we have accomplished over the years, what we take the most pride in is the fact that Galaxy Group of Companies is formed with a capital of mainly Armenian origin. Our primary objective with each company that we establish is to contribute to the development of Armenia’s economy and to improve the quality of life of our community. It is our belief that the wellbeing and prosperity of our company is directly correlated with that of our country—therefore, in this mutually symbiotic relationship, we have to ensure that we hold our end of the deal and do our part in developing Armenia.
