Electrical Metallic Tubes shortly known in the industry as “EMT” is the sole product being manufactured by Tabalsa-Arabia, a member of ETE Group of Companies in Saudi Arabia. Though it comes in various types however, it  is mainly used for protecting and routing of electrical wiring commonly applied in commercial & industrial buildings.

Driven by stronger business foresights , ETE Group embarked on a joint-venture business with a major Spanish company TABALSA-TALLERES BALCELLS, S.A. , engaged into production of EMT across Europe, forming a new independent entity known as, Tabalsa- Arabia. This idea came about as anticipating move,  after  ETE Group’s top management team had sensed a positive stimulus  in the construction industry-  characterize by a massive socio-economic projects being planned everywhere in the region- that would  likely trigger a high demand for EMT in the next few years.  Armed with positive outlook and determination to grasp every opportunity that comes in the way, it didn’t take so much long until the mid of 2009 when the first batch of EMT were successfully produced by Tabalsa-Arabia through  a state-of-the-art production facility located at Dammam Second Industrial Area.

However, just like any other field of business endeavor, while on the process of obtaining International Certificates & Recognition, normal barriers were also encountered.  Finally, hard work and perseverance bear its fruits when Underwriters Laboratories ( UL ) an American-based independent safety and quality certification organization, has granted approval on Tabalsa-Arabia’s EMT products, that is of course after going through a tedious & grueling scientific procedures. 
Having been bestowed with this prestigious honor and certification gives Tabalsa-Arabia a competitive edge in the stiff market competition since it could automatically translates to big boost on sales as it lays the foundation on customers’ trust on product quality.

Shortly following the UL approval, Al Fozan Building Materials- a long-established & highly reputed company whose core business is  importation of building materials,  immediately came forward to forge  a major agreement with Tabalsa-Arabia to be the exclusive EMT products distributor. Thus, the formal contract signing session followed  on February 19, 2012 & was held at ETE Head Office. Al Fozan Co. Ltd. was  represented by  Mr. Ali Al Fozan ( General Manager) and Mr. Ahmed Kabech ( Sales and Marketing Manager ) whereas Tabalsa-Arabia was represented by Eng. Morhaf Bu-Khamsin ( ETE Group – Vice President for Business Development ), Eng. Ahmed Bu-Khamsin ( ETE Group-Vice President for Operation ), and Eng. Hossam Bu-Khamsin ( ETE Group-Vice President ) .

The stamped agreement denotes a significant milestone for Tabalsa-Arabia as it revitalizes its mission to capture a large chunk of EMT market consumption not just in Saudi Arabia but also in the GCC emerging markets.
