Major agreement

May 2016

Zamil Steel Company has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Eiffage Genie Civil, a member of France’s Eiffage Infrastructures Group specialising in infrastructure projects, to cooperate and share expertise on infrastructure steelworks projects in the GCC region.

The agreement was signed by Vincent Papait, managing director for the Middle East at Eiffage TP International, and Nawaf Al Zamil, vice-president of Zamil Steel, at the Saudi company’s headquarters in Dammam.

The MoU will enable the companies to cooperate on major infrastructure development and steelworks projects and share knowledge and expertise in the engineering and management of existing and future projects in the region. 

“The areas of coordination will also include technical and engineering assistance in several prefabricated structural steel building projects and other areas of shared interest in order to reach and put forward the best strategy. The MoU will enhance the ability of both organisations to achieve their respective objectives and mandates,” says Al Zamil.

According to Al Zamil, the MoU benefits both companies as well as countries within the GCC region that are planning new infrastructure development.

“The cooperation between Zamil Steel and Eiffage Genie Civil is expected to maximise the expertise in all aspects of steel infrastructure projects — from engineering to production technology and project management — that we are able to offer to our clients,” he says.

“We look forward to combining our knowledge and providing world-class, sustainable solutions to infrastructure development issues across the GCC region,” Al Zamil concludes.

 Eiffage is one of France’s leading construction and civil engineering groups. Conceived as a federation of companies — with more than 500 subsidiaries in France alone — Eiffage is the result of the 1993 acquisition by Fougerolle of Société Auxiliaires des Entreprises.

Eiffage member companies specialise in private sector and public construction and civil engineering projects, including building construction, highway and road construction, electrical installation, and civil engineering (bridges, stadiums and other public structures).
