WAM – Emirates Global Aluminium, EGA, will join industry professionals from around the world at ALUMINIUM Middle East 2015, which takes place from 14th to 16th April at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
As a participant in the exhibition since it was launched in 2009, formerly through its core operating subsidiaries Dubai Aluminium, DUBAL, and Emirates Aluminium, EMAL, the EGA will leverage ALUMINIUM Middle East 2015 to showcase the company’s regional and global leadership.
The event will gather 3,000 industry professionals from 70 countries around the world and will highlight the Middle East’s future role as the world’s powerhouse in aluminium production. ALUMINIUM Middle East 2015 will also facilitate discussions on uplifting the downstream sectors to support the phenomenal growth that has been achieved in upstream industries. EGA will have a significant presence at the event with a spacious exhibition stand that will provide insight into EGA’s product range, its corporate values and latest technological innovations.
Walid Al Attar, Chief Marketing Officer at EGA, said, "EGA’s high quality, high performance products (high purity and foundry re-melt products, rolled products and billets) are shipped to more than 350 customers in at least 68 countries – predominantly in Asia, Europe, the MENA region and the Americas. Approximately 88 percent of annual production is exported, the remaining 11.5 percent being sold to the downstream industry in the UAE."
He added, "This event gives us an opportunity to reflect our achievements and highlight the opportunity for further opportunities for downstream semis and finished aluminium products in the UAE."
With an annual production capacity of 2.4 million tonnes, EGA is the largest primary aluminium producer in the GCC region – accounting for almost 50 percent of total regional production in 2014 – and one of the five largest primary aluminium producers in the world. A proudly Emirati company, EGA uses advanced proprietary in-house developed technologies that rank among best-in-class for the industry.
