Ofek-Shely’s “I Believe”
“The customer is our top priority, and the partner-customer satisfaction is of utmost importance to us. Ofek-Shely stresses creativity and professionalism, and we build with transparency and in partnership with our customers while ensuring the highest standards of professional work, and maximum customer service with full value for money.”
Ofek-Shely is cited for its use of high-quality materials, a high level of finishing and maintenance, thinking and planning down to the smallest of details, luxurious technical specifications, and design by leading architects in the field.
Supporting the Customer – all Along the Way
The fact that Ofek-Shely is both an independent entrepreneur and a developer that builds both housing units and commercial centers – is of great importance to its customers. Combining these forces gives customers the peace of mind they so desperately need, in a deal that is sometimes their deal of a lifetime. This way, they can be sure that Ofek-Shely’s representatives will guide them throughout the process, from the planning and the sales stage, through the on-site construction, to the finishing levels, the key delivery and the comprehensive test, all to their complete satisfaction.
A Guarantee for Success – Skilled Personnel and Advanced Equipment
Ofek-Shely has a pool of high-quality and skilled personnel, who have been carefully selected. Along with its human resources, the Company has state-of-the-art equipment that enables it to carry out large-scale projects, while adhering to excellent quality and essential deadlines. The equipment available includes, inter alia, a state-of-the-art logistics center and engineering equipment, along with state-of-the-art cranes, building molds for high-rise towers (using the Baranovich method which is the most widely accepted construction method in Israel for exterior cladding in high-rise homes and residential towers), etc. All equipment is operated by a skilled team of engineers, project managers, and construction workers.
Ofek–Shely holds the “C5” contractors classification for unlimited projects. The advanced engineering and technological knowledge gained during its years of activity enable it to deal with specialized and complex projects, which it carries out under the supervision of an experienced management and professional team.
A Company With Financial Strength
In early 2019, 50% of the Company’s shares were sold to David Ben Zaken, an American businessman. David Ben Zaken has extensive financial expertise, and the change in the shareholder mix, has contributed significantly to strengthening the Company’s capital structure and future growth possibilities. One of the most significant changes following the acquisition process was the concentration of the control and management of the Company in the reins of Ra’anan Halili. Since assuming the position of Chief Executive Officer, he has led the Company safely towards achieving its goals.
Main Areas of Activity and Primary Customers
Ofek-Shely’s “fingerprints” are clearly evident in 18 communities across the country, where the Company operates in the residential, commercial, and office sectors.
Among its most prominent projects are:
Residential Construction: The Company has undertaken thousands of residential housing construction projects for the largest companies in the industry.
Infrastructure and construction projects for commerce and services: The Company has many years of experience in complex projects for the private and public sectors, including government institutions, local authorities, and private sector entities.

The Company is the Main Contractor for the Menorah Mivtahim Project
