O.D.Debbas & SONS was founded in Beirut in 1892 as a modest purchasing office to serve the needs of people immigrating to the New World, it has since developed into an organization handling all the services related to travel, freight, and insurance both in the Middle East and throughout the world.

O. D. Debbas and Sons is the oldest moving company in Lebanon.

During the 60s and 70s oil boom in the Middle East, O. D. Debbas and Sons handled most of the major companies' needs for moving employees, their families, and furniture to and from Lebanon, to booking tickets and flight reservations.
