We look forward to this venture ushering in a new era of capabilities and efficiency in metal processing.”

Vahid Fouladkar, CEO, Metal Park said: "Our partnership with Galva Hub marks a groundbreaking moment for Metal Park and the entire metal processing industry in the UAE. We're not just creating the country's largest galvanising pool; we're setting a new benchmark for excellence and innovation. This venture is just the beginning, and we enthusiastically encourage other industry leaders to join us in this exciting journey. Together, we will redefine the possibilities of metal processing and pave the way for a future where efficiency, sustainability, and quality lead the charge."

Shadi Nemeh, CEO, Galva Hub said: "We anticipate becoming the Hub for galvanisation excellence. Having the largest galvanising pool in the UAE, we aim to spark a transformative shift in the metal industry, envisioning a future where innovation and sustainability harmoniously propel us towards positive change.”
