GMA Garnet Middle East FZE (GMAME) was established in the Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai in 1999.
The company markets and distributes quality garnet abrasives and provides service support to customers in the UAE, the Middle East as well as the Caspian Region. Prior to the establishment of GMAME, GMA has been distributing garnet abrasives in these markets since 1988.
In 2004, the company upgraded its facility into a fully integrated bulk handling & garnet processing facility with a capacity of 50,000 metric tonnes per annum. The company also pioneered the construction of the largest bulk handling depot within the Jebel Ali Free Zone – Dubai.
GMA Garnet Middle East and sister company Garnet Arabia Company in Saudi Arabia are the major abrasive suppliers to offer garnet abrasive and garnet recycling services in the entire GULF and Middle East region. Garnet recycling provides an environmentally responsible option for companies to dispose their used garnet.
In 2012, a new pre-treatment facility was established to increase efficiency and output of the quality of processed garnet produced from used garnet that is being treated in the company’s garnet recycling facility in Jebel Ali. GMAME’s garnet products are also exported to Europe and USA.
