History

Tecnalco ‘Aluminium Technical Engineering Company’ first commenced operations towards the end of 1981.

In those early days the company, a partnership set up by Mr. Ibrahim Saeed Alghas and Mr. Adul Salam Mohammed Al Zoorooni, two enterprising and hardworking young U.A.E locals from the Emirate of Umm Al Quwain set about the task of fabricating doors, windows, kitchen cabinets and fixed partitions etc, to supply the growing demand arising from construction. Tecnalco was one of the first companies in the U.A.E to manufacture these products and though enjoying some success in this segment, the decision was made in 1984 to switch operations to the fabrication of central A/C grilles, diffusers and door grilles etc.

The product list grew along with the company’s expertise to include many new items which were then grouped into the nine chapters of our product catalogue.

The company has continued to grow and flourish with the expanding market of the U.A.E for almost three decades, ever increasing its technical knowhow. Tecnalco’s product range has grown to the now 17 chapters its catalogue makes up, including products such as: volume control dampers, sound attenuators, fire dampers, jet diffusers, air louvers, exhaust valves and perforated diffusers.

In June 1999 the company was bought out fully by Mr. Ibrahim Alghas after Mr. Abdul Salam decided to pursue other business interests. Tecnalco has continued to be successful under the sole leadership of Mr. Ibrahim, reinforcing its name as a market leader in the industry.

In 2008 the decision was made to change the title from company to factory reiterating the fact that we are indeed manufactures and not only traders in the industry. In 2009 Mr. Ibrahim appointed his son Mr. Ahmed Alghas, a graduate of Kingston University in the U.K, to take over future development of Tecnalco, who immediately began a systematic updation of processes, removing any outdated systems or practices while building on Tecnalco’s strengths. A website was created along with many other technological improvements that help smooth day to day operations, offering more information, quicker response times and allowing Tecnalco to better meet the needs of its customers.

Today Tecnalco is just one of Mr. Ibrahim Alghas group of successful businesses, each of which is a leader in its respective field and including: Arabian Extrusions Factory, Al Falaj Water, A1 Plast, and Emirates Plastics.
