Mabani Steel aims to grow its business and help customers complete their projects on time and budget.
With the mega-event of the decade coming to Dubai’s sunny shores, it’s safe to assume the UAE can anticipate rapid growth in the construction sector as it gears up for Expo 2020. The future of construction already looks bright in the country, if projects announced in recent months are anything to go by.
This expected increase in construction will not be restricted to the UAE alone. Cumulative growth in the industry in the MENA region is set to reach 80% over the next decade, surpassing a global industry growth rate of 67%.
It’s almost impossible to imagine construction without steel, and the UAE is no exception. The country produced 2.9 million tonnes of steel in 2013, according to the World Steel Association.
Enter Mabani Steel, a UAE-based designer, fabricator, erector and supplier of Steel Buildings Structures. The company, wholly owned by Al Rajhi Holding Group, has its head office and factory located in Ras Al Khaimah.
Mabani Steel’s factory boasts a production capacity of 72,000MT per year of pre-engineered buildings and 48,000MT per year of Hot Rolled Structural Steel.
The firm has worked on more than 2,000 projects so far, with a track record of supplying steel buildings to over 43 countries in the Arabian Gulf, Africa, South Asia and Far East.
Closer to home, Mabani Steel was recently appointed to supply to the upcoming Dragon City Mall in Bahrain. It also currently has projects underway in Saudi Arabia, including the Jeddah Airport and the Aquat Food Factory, also in Jeddah.
In line with renewed growth in the construction sector regionally, Mabani Steel maintains that its performance in 2014 has been the best ever since the company’s establishment in 2006.
Not content to rest on its laurels, the company aims to grow its business and help customers complete their projects on time and budget. The UAE and KSA markets are of particular interest to Mabani Steel, where it hopes to secure signature projects and repeat business.
With the global spotlight on safety and sustainability in the construction sector, Mabani Steel has ensured compliance with ISO guidelines.
Work standards at the company comply with several ISO certificates, such as: ISO9001-Quality Management Systems, Mabani ISO 14001-Quality Environmental and ISO 18001-Health & Safety.
In 2012, the Mabani Steel factory was also awarded the Environmental Performance Certificate by the UAE Ministry of Environment and Water, in recognition of efforts to comply with environmental production standards.
