The program, a newly established government agency, is leading the development of five fast-growing, export-oriented industrial sectors in Saudi Arabia:

  • Automotive
  • Minerals and Metal Processing
  • Solar Energy products
  • Plastics and Packaging
  • Home Appliances

These carefully chosen industries share two main characteristics: firstly, they all use and can make the most of Saudi Arabia’s abundant natural resources, raw materials and energy; and secondly, they all have huge potential. Our role is to support you in making your industrial investment a reality in Saudi Arabia. To do this, we have a team of experts in the industries we are developing, and extensive knowledge of local conditions.

Ma’aden was formed by Royal decree in 1997 to facilitate the development of Saudi Arabia’s mineral resources and was originally wholly owned by the Saudi Government before 50% of its shares were floated on the Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul) in 2008.

Initially Ma’aden’s activities focused on expanding its active gold business which now includes five mines and over 11 million ounces of JORC compliant gold resources at operational and exploration sites.

The National Industrialization Company (TASNEE) was established in 1985, as the first joint-stock industrial company fully owned by the private sector. The company pursued the path of industrialization as one of the best options for diversification of the economic base and boosting of the overall growth in Saudi Arabia. It endeavoured to translate its clear vision to be a leading industrial company which is committed towards its shareholders and related parties worldwide. The secret of the Company’s strength is its wide experience and skilled-labour, state–of-the art technologies and products and innovative solutions which add value to its products and services locally and offshore.

The Company has grown to become the second largest industrial Saudi Company and the second largest producer of titanium dioxide in the world.
