Saudi Production ... Global Expertise
Global Gypsum Company Ltd. (3G) was founded in 2005 as a joint venture between Lafarge Gypsum International, the world’s largest manufacturer of building materials, and a group of prominent Saudi investors that includes Zahid Group Holding.
With a capacity to manufacture 300,000 tons of high-quality gypsum powder (stucco) and 300,000 m2 of plaster ceiling tiles, the Company supplies the growing market of building materials and construction in Saudi Arabia and the GCC.
Having a strict zero tolerance policy regarding safety and a proactive policy towards protecting the environment, 3G has created a healthy, productive working atmosphere. In fact, the Royal Commission in Yanbu considers 3G a model company in caring for the neighborhood, and the Company has conducted seminars, assisted by experts from Lafarge, in Safety and Health programs.
There is also a stringent training program in Saudi Arabia and at Lafarge facilities around the world. Employees, distribution partners and end users are invited to take advantage of the modern plant’s training center in Yanbu Light Industry Park. Although courses focus on applications of Gypsum, the training center and the well-equipped laboratory are involved in research and development in the plastering field, continuously leading the market with innovative products.
