Khatam al-Anbia Construction Base Headquarters is controlled by the Islamic Revolution’s Guards Corps (IRGC).
Established during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war, the company is one of the Iran’s largest contractors in industrial and development projects.
After Mahmoud Ahmadinejad got elected as country’s president in 2009, the base started getting involved in major oil and gas projects as well.
It controls over 812 registered companies inside and outside Iran. Some 10 percent of the company’s employees are the IRGC members and the rest are contractors.
In 2011, then a commander of the base, Rostam Qasemi said that the base has completed “more than 10,000 various construction projects” around the country.
Late in September, Akbar Torkan, a senior official in the President Hassan Rouhani administration criticized the firm for negligence and delay in completing the undertaken projects.
Torkan who is secretary of the Council of Cooperation of Special and Free Zones said that the headquarters is “strong” and the administration cannot overpower it.
