Al Qaryan Holding, a leading metal recycling, processing, and trading company, announced today (September 21) it is driving innovation in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)’s $6 billion (SR23 billion) recycling market, thanks to a digital transformation partnership with global technology company SAP.
One of the Middle East and North Africa's (Mena’s) larger recycling companies, Al Qaryan Holding has 27 facilities for a total of more than 1 million tonnes per year. Al Qaryan Holding’s activities include metal and WEEE recycling, logistics and treatment of reuse materials and equipment, waste management services, dismantling and demolition.
Under the Saudi Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia continues to advance its circular economy initiatives to align globally, with the potential to reach 90 per cent rate of recycling metal that is seen in more developed circular economies. With these huge efforts in circular economy Saudi Arabia is primed to support environmental sustainability.
Further leading innovation in the region’s recycling market, Al Qaryan Holding is the first recycling company in Mena to digitally transform with SAP intelligent solutions, which will enable Al Qaryan Holding to innovate, optimize its operations, better product costing, and do data-driven decision-making for its regional expansion plans of near future. Al Qaryan Holding and SAP leadership also agreed to join hand for future sustainability initiatives.
“As the GCC’s demand for end-to-end recycling grows, Al Qaryan Holding needed real-time insights to deliver operational excellence across our occupational health and safety, facilities, people, fleet, and maintenance,” said Mohammed Al Qaryan, Chairman, Al Qaryan Holding. “Our digital transformation with SAP will enable us to deliver the highest quality services, products, enhance customer satisfaction, and better working environment.
