Being in the aluminium market for more than 40 years allowed us to build a growth mindset, and improve coping, and adaption policies to the fast and rapid changes happening in the market especially nowadays.

We always try to stay up to date with the new trends. For us, capacity planning is a priority. Having a capacity planning strategy is a great way to get ahead of the challenges that are sure to arise as well as helps us address possible future issues, take advantage of the benefits that come with planning, improve team performance, and streamline our business tasks for increased efficiency and reduce workflow complexity. Maintaining adequate cash flow helps us maintain financial stability, manage risk, and make decisions based on accurate financial data.

Also, regarding the current market situation, a surplus stock was a must, this is why we have decided to expand our storage which was very beneficial to avoid delays in current projects.

How do you see the current trends for your products in the façade industry in your region?

I guess the coming trends in the façade industry will shape a new future for aluminium solutions. Like merging different components like GRB with curtain walls and glazing instead of ACP or using tensioned fabrics. It gives variety and makes the design more elevated and textured. Also, glazed screens and solar glass are coming strongly to the field.

AMACO stay ahead of the curve in terms of technology

What are the major challenges you find in the industry? How do you overcome those?

The current market situation is causing deprivation of imports and a severe shortage of foreign currency liquidity, a challenge every business faces nowadays. We see that exporting, opening new markets, learning, and developing are the solutions. I believe that these kinds of challenges open new dimensions for business expansion.

What is your vision for the company in the next 5-6 years?

Our vision is to approach international markets. We see promising markets in Libya and Oman but at the moment Saudi Arabia is at the top of our list. We aim to establish our new branch there and cover 30% of facades and aluminium solutions development in 2024. We intend to balance exporting and importing rates by increasing the production of high-quality products that can compete internationally. Opening a training center to enhance our expertise.
