Emirates Glass clads 435m high Iran telecom tower
Dubai, May 3, 2008
Emirates Glass (EGL) has announced the successful completion of its order for the supply of its premium glass products to the third tallest telecommunication tower in the world.
Emirates Glass is one of the leading processors of architectural flat glass in the Middle East and a subsidiary of Glass LLC, which is wholly owned by Dubai Investments (DI).
The region’s leading glass products supplier successfully wrapped the 435 meters high Milad Telecom Tower in northern Tehran with 8,000 square metres of EmiLam laminated and triple laminated glass, said an EGL official.
The company managed to complete the contract several months before its due date, pointed out Ziad Yazbeck, general manager, Emirates Glass.
The Milad Telecom Tower contract in Iran comes in a series of orders the company has completed in various countries in the region. The aluminium contractor was Germany’s renowned Etzel GmbH while the main contractor for the project was Iran’s Yadman Sazeh.
“This prestigious contract allowed us to clad the third tallest telecommunication tower in the world and was a major milestone for us."
"Our products are already greatly preferred by leading architects who have worked on various high-rise towers. Nevertheless, we are extremely privileged to be supplying our products to such a unique landmark project in the region," Yazbeck observed.
The company’s EmiLam laminated glass is a versatile, durable safety glass product for any architectural situation which requires excellent impact-resistance as well as resistance to break-in, to bullets and to explosions.
"The Milad Telecom Tower contract in Iran, along with other projects in the region, including major contracts in Qatar, has further consolidated our leadership position."
"Emirates Glass has been able to win and supply such contracts due to crucial measures undertaken over the years including our ongoing multi-million capacity expansion project,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
