We have used our own technology in every smelter expansion since the 1990s and retrofitted our older production lines. In 2016 we became the first UAE industrial company to licence our core process technology internationally.
Continuous improvement involves everyone at EGA and is an integral part of our corporate culture.
Our employee Suggestion Scheme has operated since 1981, based on our belief that the people closest to a work process are in an ideal position to identify what improvements are required and create the best solution. EGA employees have submitted more than half-a-million suggestions since it started.
EGA’s Tamayaz programme brings together cross-functional teams led by middle-managers and supported by our lean manufacturing experts, to find potential solutions to overlooked problems through structured, scientific analysis.
At EGA, we have a bold aspiration to innovate the future of aluminium production. For the decades ahead, we intend to act as technology pathfinder for our industry, expanding our position as technology supplier of choice, and establishing a thriving manufacturing innovation ecosystem in the UAE.
