On 12 November 1979, aluminium production in the United Arab Emirates began. The first metal was produced at our Jebel Ali site. Our founder, the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, had signed a decree establishing Dubai Aluminium in 1975 as part of a vision to diversify the economy and create opportunity for people. For the past 40 years, we have turned that vision into reality.

EGA was the world’s largest ‘premium aluminium’ producer in 2018. The development of EGA since the 1970s has taken the UAE from no aluminium production to the fifth largest aluminium-producing country in the world.

Our lives would be very different without aluminium. It is thanks to the metal of the future that we live in great cities, can make instant connections and more. At Emirates Global Aluminium, we produce one in every 25 tonnes of aluminium made worldwide.
