The Heart of AA LAQUIS

Taking Good Care Of Caribbean People
Has Always Been at the forefront of the AA LAQUIS business.

We are one of the largest indigenous companies that enhance the quality of lives within our regional community. Started in 1948 as a haberdashery store by Anthony Abraham Laquis Snr, it was later expanded by his eldest son Abraham A. Laquis.

The organization is now managed by the third generation of the Laquis family and has since evolved into a diversified business model encompassing several companies in the Medical, Food and Consumer, Pharmaceutical, Emergency, as well as Retail sectors.

Our strong heritage over the last 67 years has been rooted in traditional family values, providing a solid foundation built on stability, integrity and reliability.

Who are we?

We are a distribution company that cares not just about the products we sell but about the lives of the people who use them.

The people who work to provide them to our customers, shoppers and consumers as well as those in the communities in which we operate our businesses.

As a result, we commit ourselves to selling only products or services that we will personally use for our own families – it’s not always about profit.

We realize that our business can be a force for good in making people’s lives a little bit better and we take that responsibility very seriously.

This has shaped our corporate priorities and values, influencing every aspect of our commercial operations.

We believe that our job is not just to meet the needs of our stakeholders, but to provide them with such exceptional service that they are left in amazement at the quality of the experience.
