The company has also partnered with German-based aluminium producer Alcoa Group for the delivery of its Kawneer architectural system within the factory.

The move is in line with the manufacturer's aim to leverage the demand for aluminium building systems amidst the UAE's booming real estate sector, which is currently witnessing the construction of $700 billion worth of property developments.

Upon its completion in May, the factory will be equipped with the latest production technology and a production capacity of 360,000m2 per year, which includes two production lines dedicated for Unitised Curtain walls. In addition, the company's strategic agreement with Alcoa will augment the company's aggressive expansion strategy, which is currently being supported by its long-standing partnerships with Belgium-based Sapa RC Systems and French
company Technal.

Belgium Aluminium and Glass Industries is part of the Al Fara'a Construction Group.
