Al Qaryan Holding, a leading metal recycling, processing, and trading company, announced it is driving innovation in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)’s USD 6 billion (SAR 23 billion) recycling market with its digital transformation partnership with global technology company SAP.

One of MENA’s larger recycling companies, Al Qaryan has 27 facilities for a total of more than one million tons per year. The company’s activities include metal and WEEE recycling, logistics and treatment of reuse materials and equipment, waste management services, dismantling and demolition.

According to the statement, Al Qaryan Holding is the first recycling company in the Middle East and North Africa to digitally transform with SAP intelligent solutions, which will enable the group to innovate, optimise its operations, better product costing, and do data-driven decision-making for its regional expansion plans in the near future. Al Qaryan and SAP leadership also agreed to join hands for future sustainability initiatives.

“As the GCC’s demand for end-to-end recycling grows, Al Qaryan Holding needed real-time insights to deliver operational excellence across our occupational health and safety, facilities, people, fleet, and maintenance,” said Mohammed Al Qaryan, Chairman, Al Qaryan Holding. “Our digital transformation with SAP will enable us to deliver the highest quality services, products, enhance customer satisfaction, and better working environment.”

In terms of solutions, the company is set to adopt RISE with SAP, along with the SAP S/4HANA real-time business suite, the SAP SuccessFactors human experience management suite for talent development for its 1,500+ employees, and the SAP Analytics Cloud.

“Al Qaryan Holding shows how Saudi Arabia’s organisations can digitally transform on the cloud into Intelligent Enterprises,” said Ahmed Al-Faifi, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, SAP Middle East North. “Al Qaryan Holding can optimize its operations and materials trading, customer and employee experiences, and support the region’s circular economy and sustainability goals.”
