About Achim Rachma
Achim Rachma is a shipping and infrastructure company with over 45 years of reputation in the field. Established in 1974 by the late Shlomo Rachma and his two brothers, the late Zamir Rachma and Emil Rachma, Achim Rachma is one of the largest leading companies in the sector. Before establishing the company, Shlomo worked as a worker and manager in a large dirt work and shipping company where he acquired the knowledge and experience used to establish the company later on. It is mostly deemed as a family company, considering that Omri Rachma, the CEO, works alongside his two cousins - Roey Rachma and Itai Rachma, and their uncle, Emil.

Its first works were mostly constructing street pavements and asphalt underneath buildings in Rehovot, Ness Ziona and the environment. Later on, the company began entering bigger and bigger works and buying large and advanced engineering-mechanical equipment.
