November 15, 2020
Green Rubber Recycling Co. (GRRC), the green arm of AlMailem Group and the pioneer in introducing waste tire recycling to Kuwait, is now an ISO-certified company. GRRC was started by AlMailem Group, with active support and encouragement from EPA (Environment Public Authority) and PAI (Public Authority for Industry), for promoting environmental sustainability within the automotive industry. The company has a state-of-the-art recycling plant in Amghara equipped with the latest European machinery.
In a presentation ceremony organized in the factory on Wednesday 11th Nov, GRRC received certifications for compliance with ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management), ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management) and ISO 45001:2018 (Occupational Health & Safety) standards. The certificates were handed over by Mr. Ramez Riad, GM, RoyalCert International Registrars to GRRC management in the gracious presence of various dignitaries, ISO auditors, key customers and media persons.
“We ensure that the tires sold by us are not only provided a safer and cleaner alternative of disposal”, said Mr. Kuldeep S. Lamba, MD of AlMailem Group while delivering the keynote address, “but are in fact given a new lease of life, be it on playgrounds and gyms, or as fuel and flooring. Our vision is to make Kuwait a leader in producing innovative green products from recycled tire waste.” Elaborating on the subject Mr. Mishari AlMailem, Joint MD said “AlMailem Group has always been strongly committed to delivering excellence in quality. ISO certification is a step in this direction which ensures that each & every stage in the factory is completely aligned with relevant international standards, so that consumers can be assured of reliability & quality-consistency of all our products”.
Getting ISO certification is not GRRC’s destination, rather it is a milestone in its continuing journey towards excellence in quality. Finally, thanking the attendees, Mr. Lamba expressed his heartfelt gratitude to EPA & PAI, stakeholders, valued customers and the dedicated company staff for their unwavering commitment for this green endeavor.
