Founded in 2000 and located in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Industrial Zone, Arabian Can Industries forms part of the Al Ghurair Group, one of the most prominent family business groups in the United Arab Emirates.

Active in pearl diving and trading since the early decades of the 20th century, the Al Ghurair family formalized its business activities with the creation of Al Ghurair Group in 1960. At that time Dubai was undergoing great economic and commercial growth. This development was spearheaded by the Rulers of Dubai, the Al Maktoum Family, and supported by the trading skills of Dubai’s prominent business families. Amongst these was the Al Ghurair family.

The Group entered many different fields of activity, creating Dubai’s first cement plant (National Cement), first shopping mall (Al Ghurair Centre) and one of its oldest banks (Mashreq).

Today, the Group owns a diverse range of businesses in manufacturing, real estate and financial investments and has operations on five continents. Among its prominent businesses are Taghleef Industries, a global leader in flexible packaging, Gulf Extrusions, a major regional player in aluminium extrusion, and the shopping mall and mixed used-developent BurJuman Centre in Bur Dubai.

Arabian Can Industries is one of three packaging companies owned by the Group, the others being corrugated manufacturer Arabian Packaging and flexible plastics converter Arabian Flexible Packaging.
ACI has over recent years expanded into new markets and product lines to better serve our customers.  We owe our success to the leadership and vision of our Managing Director, Mr. Majid Saif Al Ghurair, who has helped to build ACI into one of the region’s leaders in quality metal packaging.
