Qatar Primary Materials Company (QPMC) said it has signed four new contracts for supply of 19.98 million tonne of primary materials including (Gabbro and limestone) from across the GCC region over the next three years.

The signing of the pacts with The Gate Primary Materials, Continental Trading Company, Qatar Engineering Alliance Company and Al Baida Technical Services comes as part of QPMC's plans to diversify supply sources to secure the necessary raw materials for public and private sectors in Qatar.

The actual implementation of the contract will start in the coming months, reported the state news agency QNA.

QPMC said as per the deal, private Qatari companies Continental Trading, Al Baida and Qatar Engineering Alliance will procure primary materials from Oman, while Al Bawaba Primary Materials Company will get the contracted quantity from the UAE.

The procured materials will be stored in QPMC-owned facilities in Lusail, Mesaieed and Ras Laffan regions of the country, said the report.

This will ensure the availability of these materials in the north, the south and the capital city of Doha to meet the needs of all construction sites in the country and to satisfy customers of contractors and users of primary materials from government and private sectors, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
