AmCham Bahrain tours GARMCO plant

The American Chamber of Commerce in Bahrain (AmCham Bahrain) members were hosted for a tour of the Gulf Aluminum Rolling Mill Company (GARMCO) plant in northern Sitra.

Mr. Mohamed Essa Ebrahim, GARMCO Acting Chief Executive Officer, provided an overview of GARMCO, its growth, future plans, and how the U.S.-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement (FTA) opened the U.S. market.  Mr. Ebrahim stated “GARMCO is pleased to showcase our plant and its contribution to Bahrain’s economy and US-Bahrain bilateral trade.  Our new soon to be fully operational re-melt plant will increase our production while saving us energy and resources.”  Mr. Ebrahim continued “The U.S. is an important market for GARMCO and we are pleased to have AmCham members representing a wide range of sectors with us today to learn about Bahrain’s aluminum industry and GARMCO’s very successful FTA story.

Mr. H. Delano Roosevelt, AmCham Vice President stated “AmCham is honored to have this unique opportunity to meet the executive leadership team at GARMCO and learn about an important industry in Bahrain.  Mr. Roosevelt continued “The purpose of AmCham’s plant tours is to better know and understand the industries in Bahrain and the related business opportunities both in Bahrain and in the U.S.  AmCham is committed to supporting businesses, large and small, in using and benefiting from the FTA.”

The U.S. is GARMCO’s largest export market outside of the MENA region, currently receiving about 40% of GARMCO’s manufactured products.  GARMCO strategically locates stocks of core products from the Bahrain mills in Baltimore Maryland, Houston Texas, and Long Beach California, facilitating convenient just-in-time delivery to customers.  For innovation, GARMCO partners with a U.S. university for research and development.

Aluminum is the top export from Bahrain to the U.S.  In 2016, $406M worth of aluminum was exported to the U.S., up from $293M in 2015.  GARMCO’s rolled aluminum coils are a significant part of this increasing and important export.
