One of the distinguishing factors of the AIMS Group is its commitment to a high level of quality and service to its customers. This approach, together with our vision to provide exceptional value to customers whilst upholding our values and principles, is in keeping with the investments we make in this sector. For example, the construction development in the Kingdom and the demand for building materials prompted us to establish the United Building Materials Factory, the manufacturing arm of AIMS Industrial.
ALIF Industrial Company is involved in two distinct activities - Trading and Manufacturing.
Trading in high performance chemical resistance coatings and manufacturers of nails, rivets, spring steel wire and springs for mattresses, the underlying strength of ALIF is its use of the best quality raw material and the latest cost effective technology. These high standards not only enable ALIFs ' products to compete with similar imported ones, but also gain international recognition and to export its products overseas.
A further example is our investment in the Madinah Carpet Factory (MCF). Established in 1996, MCF products are characterized by their quality and variety, which makes it one of the leading national factories producing prayer carpet & Ihram in the Saudi market. The factory is located in Al Madinah Al Munawarah and this gives it a competitive advantage during Ramadan and the Hajj season. Due to the significant increase in demand, MCF has expanded its distribution network by establishing branches in many cities in the Kingdom, with a major presence in the Western and Central areas. The factory's objective is to match the current and future demand on such products in both the domestic and international markets.
In addition, the Group has established a modern carpet factory, where its production is competing the other similar imported products.
This is our manufacturing unit, which was established in 1999 to cater to the booming construction sector by manufacturing nails, rivets and expanded metal products. The factory has expanded rapidly to keep up with the growing market and has added new products including the following:
Nails and Expanded Metal Mesh for construction industry:

All our products are manufactured using the best quality raw materials and the latest cost-effective technology to ensure an impeccable end product and competitive rates. The factory follows ISO 9001:2008 for its quality system. In addition, all products pass a variety of quality checks during and after the manufacturing process to ensure adherence to the related international standards.
