Embosal Steel Mills LLC, a conglomerate family business established in the 1980s in the United Arab Emirates, has revealed its plan to set up a steel pipe plant in Ras Al Khaimah, specialising in manufacturing of structural steel pipes and tubes, water transmission pipes and piling pipes.
Embosal Steel Mills will soon be joined by three of its sister companies in its new 140,000 m2 land plot at Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ). The project will have a total investment of AED 250 million, and a workforce of over 450 employees, with a combined annual capacity of 1.5 million metric tonnes of steel tubes and pipes. All products will be distributed to local projects within UAE and overseas.
“Our relocation to Ras Al Khaimah is a strategic decision to support our long-term goal. Cost is one of the most important factors in our decision-making process, and RAKEZ was able to offer us cost-effective solutions,” said Mr. John Thomas, Managing Director of Embosal Steel Mills LLC. “Embosal Steel Mills is just the beginning of our journey with RAKEZ. Our sister companies operating in different emirates will also join us in the same location, improving our collaboration and efficiency, as well as for a more seamless distribution of our products to the rest of the region.”
Commenting on Embosal Steel Mills joining the economic zone, Ramy Jallad, Group CEO of RAKEZ said: “It is always a pleasure to welcome large-scale industrial companies to RAKEZ such as Embosal Steel Mills LLC – the latest addition to the over 150 supply chain players in our zones. Over the years, we have been enhancing our industrial ecosystem through the continuous improvement of our offerings and overall infrastructure to fully support the operations of our industrial players – from their production and storing process to the easy flow of their goods to the region. In the macro, our efforts are geared towards further growing the manufacturing industry in the emirate and creating more opportunities for global talents.”
Once the relocation process is completed, Embosal’s production facility will also house Coremetal Industries LLC, which will run the fabrication, metal processing and machine shop, and CorePac Packaging LLC, which will manufacture and store packaging disposables and airline products. It will also include an on-site accommodation for its large manpower.
