Participation in Indian trade events and the winning of awards and accolades this year from authorities in Vietnam and the UAE have ramped up Saudi-based Zamil Steel’s appeal overseas.

Hundreds of visitors had a look at Zamil Steel’s offerings at the Roof India Exhibition, Asia’s largest roofing and allied products event, which took place in Mumbai, and the India Warehousing Show 2013, the largest event for India’s logistics industry, held in New Delhi. 

Roof India, endorsed by several international and national associations, featured more than 150 exhibitors from the roofing and allied products industries of India and other countries. Approximately 500 people visited the Zamil Steel India display booth to learn more about the innovative products and services presented there.

The India Warehousing Show 2013 was conducted by Reed Manch Exhibitions. The total exhibition area spanned more than 8,900 sq m and hosted more than 170 exhibitors, including participants from India and companies from China, Italy, Germany, Japan, the Middle East, Taiwan and the US, as well as thousands of trade visitors from all over the world. Nearly 400 visitors frequented the Zamil Steel India exhibition booth, and the show provided company representatives with ample opportunities to network with many influential logistics experts and warehousing developers. Sessions at a warehousing conference linked to the show enabled participants to share information about best managerial practices, operational standards and cost reduction methods.

Projects that Zamil Steel has completed in India include factory buildings for Thermax Babcok Wilcox Energy Solutions, Shimuzu Corporation, JK Paper and McNally Sayaji Engineering.

Zamil Steel has a factory in the western Indian city of Pune that produces pre-engineered steel buildings. Among five other PEB producing plants of Zamil Steel overall, the main plant is in Dammam, where the company has its global headquarters. Two plants are located in Vietnam and one each operate in Egypt and Ras Al Khaimah (UAE). The combined production capacity of these factories exceeds 10 million sq m per year. Since its inception in 1977 in Saudi Arabia, Zamil Steel has supplied more than 65,000 buildings to over 90 countries worldwide.

Zamil Steel Vietnam was presented at a ceremony earlier this year with the Corporate Social Responsibility Award 2012 (CRS Award 2012), from the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) in the category of Environment. The CSR Awards recognise the contributions made by businesses operating in Vietnam to the improvement of working conditions, protection of workers’ rights, and the implementation of cutting edge and environmentally friendly technologies into their production activities.

At another event, Zamil Steel Vietnam Co received the prestigious Golden Dragon Award for the 10th consecutive year. The 2013 Awards Ceremony, themed “Crossing Waves,” was presented by the Vietnam Economic Times in coordination with Vietnam Television at Hanoi Opera House.

Zamil Steel’s Vietnam projects include Pmb Phu My Cold Roll Mill, PEB Indo China Ltd, Obayashi Co and Hoya Glass Disk Factory.

Zamil Steel Ras Al Khaimah was presented with the Environmental Performance Certificate (EPC) by the UAE Ministry of Environment and Water in recognition of its outstanding efforts to comply with environmental protection standards and regulations to assure environmental sustainability during 2012.

The company was required to meet a series of stringent environmental standards and conditions in order to achieve the certification. In the UAE, Zamil Steel has been involved with a number of projects including ones supplied by the Ras Al Khaimah plant.
