Emirates Global Aluminium is the world’s largest ‘premium aluminium’ producer and the biggest industrial company in the United Arab Emirates outside oil and gas.
We operate aluminium smelters in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, an alumina refinery in Abu Dhabi, and a bauxite mine and associated export facilities in the Republic of Guinea.
Aluminium is among the world’s most versatile metals, and our global customers transform it into products that make modern life possible – from smartphones and building materials to food packaging and car parts.
Our aluminium is the biggest made-in-the-UAE export after oil and gas, bringing in billions of dollars of export revenue each year contributing to the diversification of the national economy.
Four per cent of the world’s aluminium production or almost half of the aluminium produced in the Gulf Cooperation Council, is made by us. That means approximately one in every 25 tonnes of aluminium is UAE-made.
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 homegrown technology enables us to be cost competitive and environmentally responsible while meeting our customers’ and society’s needs.
EGA is owned equally by Mubadala Investment Company of Abu Dhabi and Investment Corporation of Dubai. It is the largest company jointly owned by the two Emirates.
