GARMCO was the first fully dedicated downstream facility in the Middle East for rolling, cutting and fabricating aluminium when it was formed in 1981 by the governments of Bahrain, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Today with an annual production capacity of over 165,000 tonnes, it ranks as one of the largest manufacturers of high quality flat rolled aluminium products in the region.
From its headquarters in Bahrain, GARMCO has grown to be a truly global organisation with a network of offices located in Australia, Europe, Singapore Thailand, USA and Vietnam. GARMCO employs over 600 people worldwide, and has an annual turnover exceeding US$ 450 million.
GARMCO’s products are made using the Direct Chill Casting method since it assures better service quality when it comes to the manufacturing of high-quality alloys, sheets and coils available in various gauges, sizes and tempers. What has set GARMCO apart is the relentless pursuit of the highest international standards in the production process, and as a result, the company has won various global awards and accreditations. These include, ISO 9001:2015 quality management system; ISO 45001:2018 occupational health and safety assessment series; ISO 14001:2015 environmental management system; ISO 27001:2013 business continuity management system; and ISO 22301:2012 information security management system, and others.
GARMCO continues to make huge strides as a champion for eco-friendly causes, and the GARMCO Green Initiative provides a tangible expression of this commitment. These efforts received recognition when the company received the ISO 14021:2016 certification for environmental labels and other self-declared environmental claims.
GARMCO leads the way in contributing to a more sustainable future.
