Zamil Steel Industries expands export boundaries to Iceland
Zamil Steel Industries has added Iceland to its list of international export markets following the recent completion of a €1.2 million contract to supply nine Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings (PEBs) to the northwestern European nation.
Zamil Steel Industries' scope of work in this project included structurally designing the steel buildings to meet Iceland's environmental climate, local building codes and specifications; detailing and manufacturing the buildings within only five weeks from the date of signing the contract and then shipping them to the Icelandic port of Reydarf Jordur.
"This project was secured by our sales office in Athens for an important repeat client of ours in Italy to deliver the buildings to an end user in Iceland," said Zamil Steel Industries' Area Manager in Athens, Ziad Yamak. "In order to accommodate the strict delivery schedule for this 725 metric ton project, which is approximately 6,000 square meters in area, our operations in Saudi, Egypt and India collaborated closely, each taking part of the work load which would fit into their ongoing busy operations schedules.”
The structural design of the buildings was completed by Zamil Steel Industries' Engineering Group in Saudi Arabia, detailing work on the buildings was undertaken by Zamil Steel Industries' Engineering Group in India and production took place at Zamil Steel Industries' factories in Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Zamil Steel Industries' engineering and production operations in three countries dovetailed their respective activities to accelerate the delivery cycle time by using Zamil Steel Industries' internal technology systems.
The PEB unit is the oldest and largest of four business units at Zamil Steel Industries, which also includes the Structural Steel Unit, which is an acknowledged leader in the fabrication of high rise steel buildings, air and gas ducting and other support structures, the Towers & Galvanising Unit, which produces premium galvanized steel towers for electrical transmission and telecommunications projects and other specialized lattice steel structures and Canam Asia, a joint venture between Zamil Industrial Investment Company (ZIIC) and Steel Plus, a subsidiary of Canam Manac Group Canada, which produces open web steel joists and floor decking.
Zamil Steel Industries is one of three sector businesses of Zamil Industrial Investment Company (ZIIC). Founded in 1977, Saudi Arabia’s Zamil Steel Industries is a manufacturer of pre-engineered steel buildings, supplier of steel structures, transmission and telecommunications towers, open web steel joists and floor decking.
