Ministry of Economy heads to the Big 5
Sharjah-based Mulk a UAE construction success story
The UAE’s Ministry for Economy deputy manager, Yousuf Ali Hassan, yesterday visited the stand of the UAE-based aluminium composites company Mulk Holdings, where he discussed finance, the role of government in encouraging industry and the wider construction sector with Mulk Holdings’ CEO Saadullah Khan.
The visit capped a successful Big 5 show for Mulk Holdings after, earlier in the week, the company signed a contract to form a JV that will see Mulk aluminium composite panels manufactured and distributed throughout India.
“Even during a difficult year, India recorded a 7% growth and we want to capitalize on that. We aim to become the number one brand in India and, after aluminium, we’ll also introduce our other interests,” said Khan.
Companies from more than 50 countries are exhibiting at the Big 5, but Hassan’s visit to Mulk Holdings’ stand reaffirms the company’s status as a UAE success story, supplying products to 44 countries around the world from its Sharjah HQ.
“We’re aiming to take that number up to 65 very shortly,” added media relations manager Ismail Hassan. “That will make us the biggest manufacturer of aluminium composite in the world.”
