Her Excellency Sarah bint Yousif Al Amiri, Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology, visited the Bin Ghalib Group’s facilities recently, meeting with executive-level stakeholders, to discuss how the group deploys advanced technologies, automation, innovation, and digitalization to enhance its operations.
Bin Ghalib is a leading name in the electrical engineering industry within the UAE, providing complete solutions in switchgear, engineering, trading, and services. Since its founding it has evolved into a group of 16 independent companies.
Her Excellency was welcomed by Mohammed Binghalib, CEO of Bin Ghalib Group of Companies; Uzma Qureshi, Director, Corporate Strategy of Bin Ghalib Group of Companies; and Omar Bin Ghalib, Chief Operating Officer of Bin Ghalib Group of Companies. Her Excellency was briefed on the group’s pioneering model in panel manufacturing and R&D.
The visit included a demonstration by Binghalib subsidiary VBG Intech, a manufacturer of control valves, of its digital twin technology. Her Excellency was then introduced to the LV switchgear department to see how AI will play a role in the future of manufacturing, and was able to discuss how other industry challenges could be solved through digitalization, automation and technology.
HE Sarah bint Yousif Al Amiri, UAE Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology, said:
“In line with the objectives of Operation 300bn, Industry 4.0, and the Technology Transformation Program, we are working to boost the competitiveness and sustainability of the industrial sector as well as increase its production capacity and quality to support the UAE’s position as a global manufacturing hub and attractive investment destination. We value innovative companies within the UAE, such as Bin Ghalib, and the contribution they make to advancing different areas of manufacturing.
She added: “We are continuously working with our partners to empower these companies and to support their digital transformation. We encourage these businesses to adopt advanced technology and shift to cleaner and more sustainable methods of manufacturing. This work ultimately strengthens the UAE’s industrial and technological capabilities and positions the country as a knowledge-based investment hub in line with our national objectives to digitize and automate the industrial sector.”
She added: “Bin Ghalib Group is a valued company within the UAE, and one of our most prized innovators. It has led the way in so many different areas of manufacturing and is now poised to help set the bar for the future.
Mohammed Binghalib, CEO of Bin Ghalib Group of Companies, said: “Digital technologies and 4IR solutions such as automation are continually evolving. We are increasingly investing in innovations and research and development, leveraging our dedicated internal resources to deliver advanced solutions and products. This includes, deploying artificial intelligence and launching more satellites in line with the UAE’s vision.”
The Bin Ghalib Group of Companies plots its course for the future on the back of many recent successes. Earlier this year, one of its subsidiaries, Binghalib Technology, received a certificate of appreciation from Dubai South, based on its skills as a service provider. And another of its subsidiaries, Marshall Intech, helped to develop the UAE’s Ghalib satellite, launched into space last year, used to track falcon migration in the emirates.
The group has also exhibited at such events as ADIPEC 2022, and the WETEX and Dubai Solar Show Exhibition 2022, showcasing the work of Tamco, a window and door manufacturer; Roll International, makers of fly screens, blinds and accessories; Syscom, offering solutions for industrial automation; and BMS Btech, with its building management systems.
By drawing on its experience, the Bin Ghalib Group of Companies supports the UAE’s commitment to energy transition, as well as the digitalization and automation of its industries. Through innovation, Bin Ghalib will transform its own facilities, and those of other companies.
