SCG to introduce sustainable building products in Saudi Arabia

RIYADH, May 21, 2024

SCG International Corporation, a subsidiary of Thailand-based Siam Cement Public Company, has entered into an agreement with Buna Al Mamlaka, a major player in the Saudi construction sector, to introduce its advanced, sustainable construction technologies in the kingdom. 
This collaboration will not only help the Thai group establish showrooms in key regions for the sales and distribution of its building materials but also achieve SCG International's strategic expansion across South Asia, the Middle East, and Africa (SAMEA), with a focus on integrating sustainable practices into its business operations. 
The partnership leverages green construction technologies like Ultra High-Performance Concrete (UHPC), SCG's Ready Mix Concrete Technology, and SCG 3D Printing to minimize environmental impacts. 
UHPC creates thinner, lighter structures that are tough and capable of handling heavy loads, using less material and enhancing sustainability, it stated. 
SCG's Ready Mix Concrete optimizes concrete mixes to reduce resource use and waste. SCG's 3D Printing technology enhances construction precision, reduces material wastage, and lowers carbon emissions, said Abhijit Datta, the Managing Director of SCG International, after signing the deal with Eslam M. Radwan, the CEO of Buna. 
Both leaders are dedicated to deeply integrating sustainability into their operational frameworks, aiming to transform the regional construction landscape with eco-friendly, economically viable, and socially responsible practices. 
Through these efforts, SCG International and Buna are setting new industry standards, demonstrating how strategic partnerships can contribute significantly to achieving global sustainability goals, he stated. 
According to Datta, this co-operation leverages SCG's capabilities in innovation and construction technologies, partnering together with Buna. 
"Together we hope to lay the foundation for a future where technologies and partnerships will help transform the way buildings are constructed. Moreover, we aim to leverage Buna's capabilities to collaborate with us in Thailand and Asean countries," he stated. 
"This MoU is a testament to our joint commitment to innovation and sustainable technology, and I hope that we will have a very strong collaboration moving forward," he added. 
On the deal, Radwan said: "I am delighted that Buna Al Mamlaka has joined forces with SCG International. While the results may not be immediately visible, we are confident that utilizing SCG's technology will enhance our competitive capabilities in the Saudi Arabian market."
"This collaboration will not only improve our projects but also showcase green construction technology in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, aligning with KSA's 2030 vision," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
