Emirates Steel, the largest integrated steel maker in the UAE, has received the Saudi Arabian Standards Organization (Saso) quality mark certification for its rebar, after passing the standards tests conducted by Saso.
"We are proud to receive the quality mark certification from Saso, Which is one of the regional entities of excellence in all areas of standardization and quality,” said Suhail Mubarak Musallam Athaeeth Al Ameri, chairman of Emirates Steel.
“This certification recognizes the outstanding quality standards that we adopt and reflect in our products,” he added.
Saeed Ghumran Al Romaithi, acting chief executive officer of Emirates Steel, said: “The Saudi quality mark is a clear recognition of our product quality and safety, it will further reinforce the confidence our customers in the Kingdom have in us and in our products and it will help us in securing new customers.”
The award of the Saudi certification to Emirates Steel’s products included an assessment of the quality systems and a technical assessment of the company’s plants and the procedures and systems used in controlling production and internal quality control, as well as the testing of product samples in specialized laboratories.
