As part of the Garmco’s expansion project, Fives has been awarded an EPC contract for the construction of a new re-melt & casting facility in Bahrain.


Garmco’s Bahrain-based international aluminum rolling mill is one of the largest downstream aluminum facilities in the Middle East. This project includes the building of a new cast house to enable Garmco to develop its metal recycling capability and lower the cost of producing cast aluminium slabs for rolling.

As the EPC (Engineering, Procurement & Construction) contractor, Fives will be fully responsible for the timely and successful execution of the contract. The re-melt facility will be capable of producing 120,000 metric tonnes per year of cast slab product to stringent industrial expectations of metal and casting quality for a varied production campaign of alloys and slab sizes


Fives has a long experience in process integration, project management and execution combined with in-house multi-discipline engineering expertise. Over the past 15 years, Fives has executed several lump sum turnkey contracts in the Middle East while supplying more than 50 furnaces since 2003 including integrated casthouse solutions. Fives has also demonstrated excellent safety records thanks to its strong and effective HSE policy implemented throughout the Group ’s companies.
