From its coveted position as a leading Middle Eastern manufacturer of structural cement to the regional dominance of Gulf Pharmaceuticals, RAK's industry has come into its own under the direction of Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi. Nowhere is this newfound economic strength more palpable than in the ongoing success of RAK Ceramics. PowerPoint Presentation: His Highness: Overseeing 20 Years of Quality and Growth Like many successful companies, RAK Ceramics has overcome seemingly formidable obstacles to achieve its present dominance within its industry. Founded in the late 1980s by Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, the company began its life as a relatively small concern that manufactured about one million square meters of tile per year and sold most of its production to domestic companies and end-users. PowerPoint Presentation: This is no longer the case. With the establishment of a massive facility in the desert near the city of Ras Al Khaimah, RAK Ceramics now produces over 20 hectares of high-quality tile per day. This translates to a production capacity of nearly 120 million square meters per year. The construction of several new showrooms within the region will enable the company to expand production even further. PowerPoint Presentation: An International Partnership in the Arabian Desert Although it began by focusing on satisfying the UAE's domestic demand for ceramics, RAK Ceramics has outgrown its home market. With Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi at the helm, the company has forged a staggeringly successful partnership with Italy-based Sacmi. Thank You!: Thank You!
