Techmo is a producer of high-end mobile and stationary equipment for the aluminium and metal production sector and enjoys a long-standing commercial relationship with Alba.
Alba took part in a high-level Bahraini delegation to Italy organised by the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB) and led by the kingdom’s Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander, and First Deputy Prime Minister, HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, according to the state run Bahrain News Agency.
Commenting on the occasion, Shaikh Daij said: “Through these signed agreements, Alba aims to further strengthen its relationship with Fluorsid S.p.A., FATA S.p.A., and Techmo Car S.P.C. as well as explore more avenues for future collaboration.”
