As chairman of Dubai-based Al Ghurair Group, Abdul Rahman Saif Al Ghurair’s reach extends far beyond the construction sector, with operations in the fields of petrochemicals, industrial, retail, and finance. That said, construction runs through the core of Al Ghurair Group’s activities; the firm’s business portfolio includes outfits specialising in piling and foundations, readymix concrete, and building materials, to name but a few. With regards the latter, Gulf Extrusions forms part of Al Ghurair Group. The firm operates a 60,000-tonne capacity aluminium extrusion plant in Jebel Ali, Dubai. In addition to the GCC, it exports to a selection of global markets.
