BUILDING FOR EGYPT’S FUTURE
April 29, 2011
One of Egypt's leading experts in structural glazing and modern architectural projects, Nile Aluminium & Metals Company, is preparing to play a major role in the building of Egypt's economic future.
The new government, led by PM Essam Sharaf, is in the news encouraging economic growth and investment from UAE, the US and the European Community. Finance Minister Samir Radwan has been reported to be promoting technology exchange and investment with France, and ground-breaking projects like the erection of a 1000 Megawatt wind-generated power station project steered by Dr. Hassan Younis, the Minister for Energy, and an advanced photovoltaic energy plant in the Aswan region, are typical examples of the country's determination to forge ahead with growth and innovation and vision for a prosperous future.
Nile Aluminium & Metals Company (AluNile) is right there in the forefront, showing commitment and vision for the future by expanding and investing right now, preparing for the inevitable economic upturn in this important region.
Managing Director Eng. Seif Eissa summarised;
"AluNile was founded in 1999 as a continuation of Napco, the leading Aluminium fabricator in Egypt from 1977 until 1989. AluNile is specialized in Architectural Aluminium systems such as Structural Glazing, Curtain walls, Skylights, Metal Claddings, Doors and Windows.
We have become one of the leaders in this field in Egypt. In 2008 we built our first glass factory that includes a flat and bent tempering system, a flat laminating line, and automated IG line, as well as a cutting line and the latest waterjet cutting system.
We are currently further developing our capabilities by adding an automated arrissing line by Ashton Industrial and the latest tempering, cutting and IG lines by Tamglass and Lisec. By completion of this major upgrade we shall be one of the biggest and most advanced architectural glass processors in the Middle East."
The modern factory in Mohandessin, Giza will receive it's SEAMMAX-X PRO top-of-the-range glass arrissing line from Ashton Industrial in the third quarter of this year, fully automatically processing panels of glass of random sizes at an average rate of one piece every 12 seconds. The glass is subsequently heated and tempered to high quality safety glass, utilised in sealed double glazing for modern energy-efficient buildings and architectural projects like the recently completed Nile University (pic).
Steve Ashton, managing Director of Ashton:
"We are so proud to have AluNile on our list of prestigious customers. Their investment and expansion will underline their presence as one of the most modern facilities in the region and reinforce their reputation as a leading force in the Middle East"
