Emirates Global Aluminium carries the heritage of two aluminium pioneers. We have been developing our business for decades.
Our history stretches back to the 1970s, when we were founded as Dubai Aluminium (DUBAL). As the United Arab Emirates' stature has grown, so EGA has developed to become a leader in the global aluminium industry and an industrial champion for the nation.
