Metals was KEF Holding’s first business vertical. Established in 1995, Al Ahamadi General Trading (AGT) company became the stepping stone for KEF’s business future. The company was formed to tap into the vast business opportunities in the reclaimed metal industry, specifically for the recycling of metals.

A Global Leader

AGT is now one of the largest ferrous and non-ferrous metal recycling companies in the Middle East with the biggest scrap metal sourcing operations in the world. It is one of the few scrap metal trading companies in the UAE that has its own stockyard which accommodates up to 10,000 metric tons of scrap metal. The company ranks among the top five companies in the metal recycling industry in the UAE.

Wide Scale of Operations

With a yearly tonnage of 120,000 metric tons, we are meeting the growing demands for scrap metal across various industries especially in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent. The wide scale of operations enables us to gain the best possible prices directly from mills and smelters, which in turn enables us to provide customers with the best possible value. AGT’s vast experience of serving world-renowned steel casting foundries enables us to deliver quality material with the right chemical composition at the right price. Supported by a vast fleet of dedicated vehicles, we achieve logistical efficiency for delivering globally, within tight timescales – by rail, containers or vessels. Together with our financial and logistical partners, AGT has currently set ambitious and aggressive expansion plans to capture the global market potential.
