Israel's Top 25: Leviev Ranks No.1 Despite 20% Drop in Diamond Exports

20 january 2009

Lev Leviev Diamonds was again Israel’s largest exporter of polished diamonds in 2008 despite a 20 percent decline in the company’s exports, RAPAPORT reported. According to Israel’s Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor, LLD Diamonds exported $417 million worth of polished in 2008, compared with $522 million in 2007.
The ministry on Monday published its list of Israel’s top 25 diamond exporters which sent a combined $2.567 billion worth of polished out of the country during 2008. The top 25 companies on the 2007 list exported $3 billion worth of goods. The list did not include 17 companies which requested not to publish their figures and which had total net exports of $797 million. Most notably absent from the 2008 list was Moshe Namdar and Co., which placed in third position in 2007 with exports of $199 million.
The leading 25 companies accounted for 41 percent of Israel’s total exports, which fell 12 percent to $6.24 billion in 2008. Following LLD to complete the top five in 2008 were Leo Schachter with exports of $352 million, A. Dalumi Diamonds ($182 million), Yahalomei Espeka International ($159 million), and Yerushalmi Bros. Diamonds ($150 million).
The big movers on the list were PDD Diamonds which did not rank in 2007 but listed at No. 7 for 2008 with exports of $121 million. A. Dalumi moved from fifth to third position, and Arabov Group jumped from No. 29 to No. 16 with exports of $56 million.
