About Us


Arabian Packaging was established in Dubai in 1982. In 2004, we built a world-class manufacturing facility, which has been our headquarters ever since, in the Jebel Ali Industrial Area 2. The facility we operate is the largest, most technically advanced corrugated packaging plant in the Middle East.

We have a strong and proud history of corrugated manufacturing since 1982, and remain at the forefront of technological development and supply chain management. We operate from a world class state-of-the-art ISO accredited facility in Dubai, with fully integrated manufacturing and logistics facilities. Our experience and understanding of the market demands provides our customers with a dynamic service to suit their business demands ensuring packaging is available in the timescales you require.

We create corrugated packaging solutions for companies throughout the United Arab Emirates, no matter the size of the company or its requirements. We export to major packaging consumers in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and various African Countries as well.

Corporate profile

Arabian Packaging is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Al Ghurair Group (www.alghurair.com), one of the UAE’s most prominent and respected business Groups.

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-development BurJuman Centre in Bur Dubai.

Arabian Packaging is one of three packaging companies owned by the Group, the others being metal packaging manufacturer Arabian Can Industries and flexible plastics converter Arabian Flexible Packaging.
