The products Aralux clear and Aralux LG are sold all over the globe in 80 countries. This is a testament that their products meets global quality specifications and demonstrates a deep commitment of providing quality products and excellent customer service.

Continuous Improvement & New Developments Manager at AUFGC, Madhu Kuttanchery Madhavan said:"AUFGC is a part of a large industrial park in Yanbu. Light & heavy industries coexist here and are interdependent for energy, utility gases and water though self reliant in their own operation. Therefore we recognise our part in an overall commitment to alleviate environmental impact. It is very important to understand an environmental footprint to find our position and possibly to track down the effect of initiatives already taken. The carbon footprint assessment by Carbon-Expert will definitely help us with this and also inspire us to discover untapped dimensions."

“This continued desire to improve production processes in all respects is indicative of the appetite for technological improvement not just in Saudi Arabia, but right across the MENA region” says Derek Burston, Exhibiton Director, Gulf Glass 2013 (www.glassinthegulf.com).

“It is because of this increasing demand that next year’s Gulf Glass event is already strongly subscribed, and is set to be far larger than any previous exhibition” he adds. “This is not only because Dubai presents itself as an attractive, central location for the entire MENA region, but it also serves as a global meeting place, with many visitors able to pass through Dubai from Europe and the Americas to the Far East and vice-versa” he adds.
