UAE Al Ghurair achieves flat steel production milestone
KWK Steel Co.,Ltd.  Time:2013-10-10
Al Ghurair Iron & Steel LLC (AGIS), Abu Dhabi has produced 1 Million tons of flat steel products in the last 5 years. Achieving this milestone on its Continuous Galvanising Line on 9th October, the UAE based complex has, within a record time, produced a Million ton each in its Pickling line, Cold Rolling Mill and Galvanising Line. Production at the greenfield Abu Dhabi facility began in September, 2008 and the lines have been in continuous production since.

Mr. Abu Bucker Husain, CEO attributes this performance to the strong economies of the region and excellent support by the ZonesCorp and Abu Dhabi Government to non-oil based industries. “Despite starting our operations at the peak of the global economic crisis, we managed to do well on the strength of the quality of our products. In the very first year we reached 100% capacity utilization of the plant. Currently, we are producing a little over the installed capacity. UAE has been able to rebound better than most other economies after the economic crisis and the construction industry is buoyant after the latest announcements of various developmental projects.?

Al Ghurair Iron & Steel LLC (AGIS) - the first and the only flat steel cold rolling & galvanising complex in the UAE, is a joint venture of the Al Ghurair Group, UAE and Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation (NSSMC), Japan. New equipment has been ordered to expand the production capacities at the existing location and the commissioning is scheduled for early 2015. Tenders for Civil Works have been floated and work on the ground is scheduled to commence before the end of this year.

“In addition to commissioning a new Continuous Galvanising Line to increase the total production capacity, a Skin Pass Mill is also being added to the existing line in order to increase the product basket. AGIS plans to provide the substrate steel sheets to the Prepainting & Colour Coating lines in the region?said Mr. Husain.
