From his side, Imad Al Ghafri, Founder and General Manager of Al Zahi Al Shamilah said, “We are pleased with the inauguration of this brand new unit, which is a major step in the company's journey towards expansion. Our humble beginnings began in 2017, with the first phase hosting a production line with a capacity not exceeding 45 square meters per day, which was raised to 95 square meters in 2018. Today, thanks to the completely new production line, our washing capacity will reach 1,000 square meters per day. Furthermore, with the addition of the automatic line and its drying room, we will be able to dry the carpets in around 8-12 hours. This will enable us to deliver the product to the customer within a maximum of 48 hours, which is exceptional in comparison to the services currently available in the market.”
