Bahra Cables, an affiliate of Construction Products Holding Company, has won a contract to supply medium-voltage cable worth SR300 million ($80 million) for the first phase of the new King Abdulaziz International Airport project in Jeddah.
Talal Idriss, chief executive officer of Bahra Cables, said: “This mega project confirms that our cables are capable to meet the needs of major construction companies rather than importing from abroad, as well as enjoy great confidence.”
