In an interview with KUNA, he said that he regarded the local manufacturing
of building materials, to be the driving force behind real estate
trade in Kuwait.
He also said that demand on the companies' products was high and
that the company was focused mainly on the government sector and
larger projects with the private sector. Another market that benefits
regularly from the companies' products is the Iraqi market, which
will be the turning point for a more regional, thus global expansion.
On being environmentally conscious, Al-Nouri said that the company
worked in compliance to standards set by Kuwait's Environment Public
Authority and the Public Authority for Industry. The company's waste
undergoes a careful method of disposal and is discarded in an assigned
area, with strict environmental standards also, applied on staff.
Kuwait Industries Union was originally a concept by a group of people
back in 1984 previously called the "Union of Building Material Manufacturers,"
which later developed into
its modern-day name.
