Family History

The Zarnegin family’s patriarch, Mr. R.S. Zarnegin, began his business career at a very young age, when he first opened a consumer electronics sales and repair shop in his native Iran. By the age of 17, Mr. Zarnegin expanded his business to include ownership of several consumer electronics shops, as well as the manufacturing, importing and wholesale distribution of a multitude of consumer electronic product lines.

In the early 1940’s, Mr. Zarnegin established the family’s mining business by purchasing the rights to three mining operations in Iran. The mines, with over 2,500 employees, were in the business of exploring, extracting, processing and distributing lead, zinc, and silver ores.

The Zarnegin family’s mining companies provided free housing, food, medical care, education and other basic necessities to all of its employees and their immediate families, for over 35 years.

Until his passing, Mr. R.S. Zarnegin continued his tireless efforts in providing support and guidance to his family, as well as providing caring support to many of his favorite charitable and philanthropic causes.
