3G specializes in producing quality plasters, with an annual capacity to manufacture 300,000 tons for the construction and industrial sectors. As a result, the company continuously meets the demands of the vibrant and growing construction market in Saudi Arabia and neighboring countries.

With strong safety standards and a proactive policy towards protecting the environment, the Royal Commission in Yanbu considers 3G a model company in caring for the community. The company has even conducted seminars, assisted by experts from Lafarge, in Safety and Health programs.
