Unicoil develops thin gauge, pre-painted galvanized steel

Unicoil reports that it has developed thin gauge galvanized steel and pre-painted galvanized steel, described as the first of its kind in Middle East.
Till date the minimum thickness for galvanized steel manufactured in the region was 0.27 mm and the minimum thickness for pre-painted galvanized steel was 0.30 mm, “only by Unicoil.”
Along with its vision of continual developments of innovative products and business solution to cater various industrial needs, Unicoil succeeded to bring down the thickness for galvanized steel to 0.20 mm and for pre-painted galvanized steel to 0.22 mm, aimed at indoor ceiling (acoustic and non-acoustic) panel industry, electrical cable tape industry and many more light weight applications, which will provide diversified solutions to various industries and can lead to import substitution.
With this achievement, Unicoil, claimed as the market leader of galvanized and pre-painted galvanized steel in Middle East, says it thus surpasses its own record of being the only the national company providing thin gauge requirements to the industry.
Unicoil launched in the past smart products for energy savings and antibacterial application for enhanced hygiene requirements of the industry aside from developing eco-friendly chrome free pre-painted products.
Unicoil says it is committed to continuously improve and enhance its product portfolio by providing complete solutions to multifarious market requirements under one umbrella.

The MoU will allow Mashroat to examine and evaluate the construction projects’ management strategies and the ministry’s current facilities management, including designing and identifying policies, procedures and processes. In addition, Mashroat will ensure project implementation and facility management systems are run efficiently and effectively.

The MoU is considered as the first of its kind to be implemented by Mashroat to support the management of public facilities for government entities in the Kingdom. This includes the provision of consultation services and technical support based on international best practices and will support the ministry’s facilities, including 14 operating and maintenance contracts for 389 sites spread throughout the country.

The MoU was signed by Executive General Supervisor of Supportive Services at the Ministry of Labor and Social Development Dr. Ayman bin Ibrahim Al-Shelafan, and Director-General of Mashroat Ahmed bin Mutair Al-Balawi. In attendance were Minister of Labor and Social Development Ahmed bin Suleiman bin Abdul Aziz Al-Rajhi, Assistant to the Minister of Labor and Social Development Mohammed bin Nasser Al-Jasser, and Assistant Minister of Economy and Planning and Board Member of Mashroat Khalid bin Saud Al-Shunaifi.

Al-Jasser said: “The signing of this MoU is an important step toward strengthening our partnership with Mashroat. Through this joint effort, we aim to strengthen the ministry’s public infrastructure system, and achieve a strategy that will contribute to the development of the Kingdom and achieve the ambitious goals of Vision 2030.”

Al-Balawi said: “Mashroat aspires to achieve an effective transformational approach for the project and facilities management offices in the governmental agencies, through supervising the planning of the infrastructure projects portfolio for government agencies.” 

He added: “We are pleased to sign this MoU with the ministry, the first-of-its-kind for the management of public utilities. The program will examine and evaluate the management of current construction projects, while uniting the measurement of operational and maintenance procedures and processes to achieve efficiency and effectiveness, fulfilling the ministry’s strategic objectives.”

The MoU is an implementation of a royal decree (No. 47004) dated May 31, 2018, pursuant to the Council of Ministers’ resolution stating that public entities shall establish project management offices in cooperation with Mashroat to follow up, coordinate and manage their projects and ensure their delivery.
