Ashbee is a leading provider of premium architectural aluminium solutions in Bahrain.
In the business for nearly 30 years, façades of numerous homes and commercial spaces across the cityscape bear the stamp of Ashbee workmanship.
Upcoming projects include Waterbay by Bin Faqeeh at Bahrain Bay, and Symphony Tower by Al Tijaria opposite the Diplomatic Area.
Ashbee is the only Bahrain-based company in the industry to invest in a multi-million dollar aluminium fabrication and powder-coating plant in India.
The plant itself is a landmark structure for those driving along the Mumbai-Bangalore highway.
The 5,000 square metre facility allows the company to cater production for complex
and large-scale projects and the plant’s strategic location enables easy flow of materials for pan-India supply.
As an Indian-owned family business, Ashbee made a commitment to elevate the Indian market.
A decade ago in India, well-made aluminium window and curtain walling systems were a rarity.
Homeowners depended on carpenters to make expensive, high-maintenance traditional wooden windows or the local kach-wala to cut up thin, uncoated aluminium sections on-site.
Commercial developments, no matter how ambitious ended up with steel or wooden façades due to the absence of aluminium and glass fabricators offering international systems.
When these products finally entered the market, large projects still suffered because fabrication was done on-site instead of at a facility.
Since 2010, Ashbee India has executed over 100,000 square metres of unitised glazing in Delhi and Mumbai.
From IT parks in Mumbai to five-star hotels and the corporate headquarters of Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and the Max Group, Ashbee has helped buildings earn Leed Gold and Platinum ratings.
The company has also earned
industry awards for achieving international standards of quality.
The first visit of an Indian Prime Minister to Bahrain is a promising event and the company said it was privileged to share business practices and
industry benchmarks built here in the kingdom with the Indian market.
Company officials said they are hopeful the visit will direct and cultivate means of entrepreneurship between both the countries.
