In Persian, “Yekom” means “The First”, and this was adopted as the name of the firm because it was among the first private companies that started working in the field of economic planning in Iran. Yekom was founded in October 1973 as a private joint-stock company in Tehran, Iran. Few months later, the engineering department of Yekom was established and the name of the company changed to “Yekom Consulting Engineers”.
