The reputation acquired by Afridar is based on decades of successful activity, and the delivery of thousands of residential units and office and commercial space.

The company enjoys the financial strength and close and constructive cooperation with the banking system in Israel, as well as with additional sources of capital, all of which enable it to raise the capital required to develop and lead the urban development in Israel.
Afridar was founded in 1950 by a group of Zionist immigrants from South Africa in order to build and develop the city of Ashkelon. A few years later, the company moved to state ownership and became a government company that dealt mainly with the development of the city of Ashkelon. Afridar acquired land reserves in the city during the 1950’s-1970’s and built the Afridar and Barnea neighborhoods, which it continued to develop over the years. In 2001, the company was privatized and acquired by the Elezra Group. Since then, it has built thousands of residential units, offices and commercial spaces countrywide.
During these years, the company accumulated vast experience and knowledge pertaining to urban renewal project construction, in addition to initiating and developing projects.
