Western Bainoona Group (WBG) has integrated plans, processes, people, equipment and world-class capabilities to reliably deliver projects from concept to handover, with its reputation for quality workmanship and customer satisfaction deriving from a management style designed for on-schedule, on-budget project completion.
First opening its doors for business in 1990, WBG began with just two trailers and has evolved into a company with 300 trailers that is today recognised as a leading contractor for roads and infrastructure works, plus the production, supply and delivery of all types of rocks, aggregates and sand.
Employing approximately 4,500 personnel, WBG realises that there are multiple approaches to the development, design and construction of any one particular project, with each presenting a unique set of challenges that need to be analysed and balanced together with the owner’s objectives to reach the very best solution.
This forward-looking way of thinking has permitted WBG to work on some of the GCC’s most important and prestigious projects, including UAE Road Connection (Road Works and Infrastructure – Main Contractor); Etihad Rail (Earthworks – Sub-Contractor); Abu Dhabi International Airport (Road Works – Sub-Contractor); Barakah Nuclear Power Plant (Earthworks and Road Works – Sub-Contractor); 902 Villas Akoya Oxygen, Phase 1 (RoadWorks and Infrastructure – Sub-Contractor) and Oil and Gas Projects (Roads, Asphalt, Infrastructure, projects’ Main and Sub-Contractor).
WBG offers a broad portfolio of specialist services, with an aggressive approach that provides for immediate participation of personnel, products, resources and procedures.
WBG has earned the reputation for providing only the finest quality and customer service.
Each project is carefully planned and managed to guarantee quality, safety and on-time completion, with WBG having carried out several large road and utility projects, rendering it one of the largest contractors within the UAE.
The rapid growth and development of science and technology, together with the continuous introduction of new materials and construction techniques, calls for robust and extensive experience, as well as enlightened leadership.
Road and Infrastructure Works
WBG has executed numerous road and utility projects, attaining noteworthy experience in this specialized field. WBG also uses its own Asphalt and Wet-Mix plants, which are located strategically throughout the Emirates.
WBG is a full service environmental remediation and earthwork contractor and specialises in all types of earthworks, land grading to reconfigure the topography of a site or to stabilise slopes, surface or sub-surface earthwork, and site development.
Quarries and Crushers
WBG is major supplier of quarry materials; specifically limestone and gabbro, offering a huge selection of products that include rocks, sub base and road base, washed sand, beach sand, white or beige gravel and all sizes of aggregates. The firm has invested in fully equipped crushers in Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah and Oman. WBG is a primary supplier of aggregates not just in the UAE, but also in overseas markets such as Bahrain, Kuwait and India.
Drive just about anywhere in the UAE and you will probably see vehicles with the WBG logo. This young, modern and magnificently maintained transportation fleet is managed by sophisticated information systems (Fleet Board) to help deliver material punctually.
The truth is, WBG insists on the very latest equipment right across the board. It is, for instance, looking at how the Connected Fleet Management solution can optimise routes, reduce asset downtime, and enhance maintenance procedures for more than 1,300 trucks and pieces of equipment.
WBG Service Centres
The WBG fleet, which consists of various kinds of heavy construction machinery and vehicles, is taken care of through the company’s own in-house Service Centres, located at Musaffah, Abu Dhabi, Al Faya, Dubai and Fujairah. They are managed by a fully certified service team to make sure that all of the machinery and vehicles are available to meet projects and client demands.

Its ambitions and core values are starting points that help to clearly determine what the company is, as well as what it represents.
