In May 2011, Senaat entered in a joint venture with Gulf Extrusions Co. (LLC), part of Al Ghurair Group of Companies to establish Taweelah Aluminium Extrusion Company (TALEX) LLC.

TALEX was set up to develop and build a 50,000 metric tonne per annum capacity, state-of-the-art Aluminium Extrusion plant based at Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD). It is considered to be the first aluminium downstream project to be established in KIZAD.

TALEX’s plant will be built on a 200,000 sqm plot of land adjacent to Emirates Aluminium (EMAL) aluminium smelter, and will hence be the first project on the Hot Metal Road to receive liquid metal from EMAL. The total expected investment is approximately US$ 200 million.
