Dorsel has been operating in the yielding real estate sector in Israel and internationally for nearly 30 years. Established in 1995 as a private company, it has evolved into a publicly-traded entity with holdings in commercial real estate for industry, trade, and high-tech in Israel and Europe. Over the years, Dorsel has been proactive in construction and property acquisition, managing its assets through its in-house team, and enjoyed a substantial increase in the asset volume over the last years.
Dorsel was founded by Gabi Boganim, an entrepreneur and businessman in the real estate industry, who currently serves as the CEO of Dorsel. In addition to maintaining a controlling stake in the company, Boganim is also the principal owner of SYNEL MLL PayWay Ltd., a public company specializing in human resources. His expertise in business management and property development has been instrumental in shaping Dorsel into the robust and successful entity it is today, managing dozens of profitable commercial properties in Israel and Europe. Boganim’s children, Eyal Boganim and Gilat Elgar, also hold senior management positions in the company, with the family collectively steering the company toward success in the real estate industry.
At Dorsel, we have adhered to managerial values that emphasize insight and sensibility, enabling the steady and solid advancement of the company. As we continue to preserve our familial and personal orientation from the day of its establishment, a majority of our clients and suppliers have become true friends. Dorsel is not just another real estate company; it plants its roots in every area it operates, continually striving to improve its surroundings.
Dorsel actively initiates and undertakes construction projects across Israel. We are entrepreneurs at heart; it’s in our nature and the foundation for establishing our company. Over the years, Dorsel has operated judiciously and responsibly, leading to a steady and thriving entrepreneurial business activity. This approach has led Dorsel to initiate the construction of numerous industrial and high-tech buildings in Israel, including areas not initially perceived as suitable for the high-tech sector.
At Dorsel, we are not afraid to blaze our own trails, paving the way for the Israeli industry. We were among the first developers to recognize the potential of the Yokneam Science Park, where we initiated the construction of several buildings that today house leading companies in the high-tech industry.
Dorsel manages a variety of income-generating assets comprising industrial, commercial, and office buildings in industrial areas across Israel, as well as in England and Cyprus. Dorsel’s strategy for asset management focuses on maintaining a low number of high-quality, stable tenants while upholding precise, efficient, and lean management, which maximizes profit margins. Over the years, we have meticulously chosen our tenants following a thorough selection process. As a result, Dorsel’s assets have consistently maintained full or near-full occupancy over the years, providing the company with the stability necessary to continue expanding and managing additional assets.
Dorsel holds industrial, logistics, and business properties across Israel: in Yokneam, Yavne, Tirat Carmel, Haifa, Ashdod, Petah Tikva, and Raanana. Additionally, Dorsel owns income-generating real estate properties in England, leased to stable anchor tenants. In partnership with Ari Real Estate, Dorsel has also acquired the MyMall in Limassol, Cyprus, one of the fastest-growing locations in Europe for commerce and tourism.
Dorsel’s diverse portfolio of both local and international assets, spanning various business sectors, allows the company to maintain business stability even during periods of uncertainty.
Dorsel shares are traded on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and the company operates as a stable, value-oriented, and family-run business. We promote principles that are close to our hearts, and all Dorsel’s buildings are constructed according to the highest standards of sustainability, environmental quality, and energy efficiency. We also maintain uncompromising quality in the construction and management of the properties. In addition, we make sure to give back to the Israeli society that has shown us kindness and trust over the years.
At Dorsel, we see ourselves as a lighthouse of the Israeli real estate sector: we have been careful over the years to show economic responsibility and to invest significantly in the business and strategic planning of the projects we initiate and acquire. Dorsel’s business activity demonstrates that it is possible to exhibit stable, measured, and responsible growth in commercial real estate for nearly 30 years now.
