Emirates Extrusion adds 6,000 tonnes to capacity
Dubai Investments unit signs deal with Cometal Engineering Group
Emirates Extrusion Factory (EEF) has signed a deal with the Cometal Engineering Group for the establishment of a new extrusion line to increase its annual production capacity by 6,000 tons.
The new Italian-designed and engineering line at the factory will bring an additional press capacity of 18.7 MN, and is being manufactured by Foshan Cometal Industrial Machinery at its facility in China.
Emirates Extrusion currently operates three presses with a combined rated capacity of 18,000 tonnes a year. The cost of the additional installation project is valued at $2.7m.
Khalfan Al Suwaidi, EEF, said: “We have witnessed a significant upturn in demand over the last year, thanks largely to the revival of the real estate sector. This additional extrusion line will allow us to meet the rising demand, as well as add value to our factory in Dubai.”
“We look forward to working with Foshan Cometal, and believe that they will undoubtedly enhance our position as a leader in the competitive market for architectural profiles in this region.”
Cometal has previously installed two complete extrusion lines with the same EEF team at the White Aluminium Extrusion factory in Abu Dhabi raising capacity from 24,000 to 36,000 tonnes a year.
