IRC wins Doha airport contract
Dubai, September 23, 2007
International Rubber Company (IRC) has won a Dh1.7 million ($463,000) contract from the New Doha International Airport (NDIA) project, phase 1.
IRC, a subsidiary of M’Sharie -- the private equity arm of Dubai Investments, will supply rubber gaskets and silicone sealant for the project.
The deal, commencing in September 2007, appoints IRC to supply rubber gaskets for the exterior walls of the development to form a seal against air, water and wind infiltration, in addition to providing silicone sealant for structural glazing applications. The state-of-the-art international airport in Doha is scheduled for completion in December 2008.
Hashim Al Hashim, managing Director, IRC, said: “The New Doha International Airport project contract is another prestigious addition to a string of major contracts we have won in the recent months, underlining the superior quality of our products and enhancing our reputation as one of the region’s premier rubber companies. Our commitment to quality and our vast experience in dealing with high profile clients across the region have helped us strategically consolidate our operations.”
The contract represents the latest international deal for the company, which currently supplies products to major developments in Singapore, Qatar, England and Saudi Arabia.
IRC is a UAE-based company that produces and markets synthetic polymer rubber and plastic products specifically catering to the property development industry. The company, acquired by M’Sharie in December 2006, produces high quality weather strip and associated products including structural, container and automotive seals, moulded rubber items, plastic items and PVC waterstops.
In addition to international projects, IRC has supplied products to many of the UAE’s premier property developments, including the Burj Dubai, Jumeirah Beach Resort and Dubai Festival City. – TradeArabia News Service
