DUBAI - Zamil Steel Industries, a leading manufacture of pre-engineered steel buildings and a premier supplier of steel structures, has added Iceland to its list of international export markets following the recent completion of a 1.2 million Euro contract to supply nine Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings (PEBs) to the north-western 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 undertaking truly demonstrates one of the competitive advantages that we possess in being present globally with multi-source operations, without which we would not have been able to meet our customer's requirements," says Ziad Yamak, Zamil Steel Industries' Area Manager in Athens.

"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," adds Yamak. "In order to accommodate the strict delivery schedule for this 725 metric tonne project, which is approximately 6,000 square metres 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. Since our internal engineering and production systems are so flexible, it didn't really matter which Zamil Steel Industries operation would do the design, the detailing or the fabrication of the buildings."

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.

The Saudi-based company's products are marketed in more than 70 countries through a network of 50 sales offices, 59 certified builders and 27 agents and distributors.

Its main factories are located in Dammam First and Second Industrial Cities, with additional factories located in Egypt and Vietnam. More than 400 engineers are employed in its engineering departments in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Vietnam and India.
