(June 14, 2018) – The Iftar gathering brought together all the executive staff and factory workers of Emirates Glass and Lumi Glass Industries, who enjoyed the ritual of breaking the fast together, nourishing body and soul with delicious food and excellent company. More than 400 people, their significant others and families joined their colleagues in attending the traditional Iftar Dinner. Far away from work and projects, staff and factory workers reconnected during this special time, sharing personal news, as well as perspectives on the business environment, and rekindling memories of working together.

He addressed the crowd with an interesting insight about how fasting in Ramadan benefits the human body and saves it from numerous life threatening diseases. Mr. Rizwan also emphasized about the real essence of fasting which is way beyond abstaining from eating and drinking– but from lying, bad morals and behaviors. He said, “Fasting is supposed to make you a better person for yourself and the people around you. It has to train you for controlling your whims/desires and basic needs, with a strength, willpower and determination to do it, or to change. Fasting is a balance between the body and soul”.
“We are very appreciative of all Emirates Glass and Lumi Glass employees and want to commemorate the Year of Zayed by announcing year-end bonuses to all employees. Our employees are “our family”, they are the main shareholders of the company and we felt it appropriate to provide a more direct recognition of their importance to Emirates Glass success. The bonuses are possible due to the company’s robust financial performance in 2017 and strong confidence in the growing economy.
