Company Overview

Al-Majeed for Plastic Industries Co. was established on October 11th 1995. It is specialized in the production of plastic containers and covers. These containers are used in food production (dairy, in particular) and in the production of oils and cosmetics.
Al-Majeed for Plastic Industries Co. started its first business using one injection machine. In 1996, the Company dealt with the Petroleum refinery Company and produced the seals used on gas cylinders. The tender included the supply of around 18 million pieces.
Between 1996 and 1997, the demand was increased to 52 million pieces, a matter which required the Company to buy two more injection machines to satisfy the growing demand. Knowing that such tenders are normally limited, and there are greater chances to produce other products, the Company started to conduct studies and researches to create new products that serve the dairy industry. At that stage, the Company began to invest its profits to serve that end.
The production started with buying two new blowing machines. Due to the high quality of its products, the Company increased its market share in this field, a matter which increased the annual growth of the Company by 25%.
In order to meet the growing demands on its products, the Company continued to invest its wealth in buying new machines. Currently, the Company owns blowing machines, injection machines (PP+ Pe), injection machines type (Pet), and a blowing machine type (Pet), which produced a large set of products that satisfy the needs of the local market, and the surplus was exported.
The Company plans to expand its business by incorporating new machines, including (PE) blowing machines, (Pet) blowing machines, (PP+Pe) injection machines, and (Pet)...
