About Emirates Global Aluminium PJSC

Emirates Global Aluminium (“EGA”) is a jointly-held, equal-ownership company formed by Mubadala Development Company of Abu Dhabi and the Investment Corporation of Dubai by combining their respective aluminium industry interests.

EGA’s heritage stretches back to the 1970s and it is the largest industrial company in the UAE outside oil and gas.

EGA’s core operating assets are two smelting operations located in Dubai and Abu Dhabi whose combined production capacity of 2.4 million tonnes per annum.

EGA also owns Guinea Alumina Corporation (“GAC”), a strategic bauxite mine and alumina refinery development project in West Africa; and is currently developing an alumina refinery in the UAE.

EGA makes high quality primary aluminium products in three main categories: high purity and foundry re-melt products (for electronics,aerospace and automotive applications respectively); rolled products (for packaging, lithographic sheets and the automotive industry); and billets for extrusion and forging (for construction, industrial, transportation and automotive purposes). EGA has over 300 customers in over 60 countries.

EGA has focused on innovation for decades, to continually improve the performance and sustainability of its aluminium smelting process. Last year EGA became the first UAE industrial company to licence its core industrial technology internationally, in an agreement with Alba of Bahrain.

We have spent decades at EGA continuously improving to build a business that is financially, environmentally and socially sustainable. Joining ASI will help us on the next stage of this journey, and we hope to share some of what we have learned along the way with our industry.
