“The Ma’aden Aluminum division deployed this solution last year with IHS and we knew from the success of that project that IHS was a trusted partner committed to our success and to continuing to expand their presence to the Middle East, “ said Ahmed Ajabnoor Director, Corporate Sustainability Assurance (CSA), Ma’aden. “That project set the benchmark for our corporate objectives. We are excited to find a single vendor who has the breadth of offerings to support and underpin our entire EHS1 initiative.”
