The anniversary was celebrated to look back at the development journey of Zamil Steel during the past 25 years in Vietnam, with many outstanding historical milestones in production, business development, and expansion activities. With its theme: “25 years of trust and quality”, the event also delivered Zamil Steel Buildings Vietnam’s appreciation to customers and partners throughout the Asia-Pacific region for their support, cooperation, and trust in the Zamil Steel brand.
Recalling the early days of establishment, Mr. Nawaf Al Zamil, President of Zamil Steel Holding Company, shared:
“In 1997, we were the first and only Saudi Arabian enterprise to invest in Vietnam and also the pioneer to bring the concept of “pre-engineered steel buildings” to Vietnam. When exporting the first orders to Vietnam in 1993, we realized that Vietnam and the Asia-Pacific region are vibrant markets with huge development potential. With the ambition to bring a new type of product in line with safety and technical standards while still satisfying local architectural requirements, the management of Zamil Steel Holding Company decided to establish two representative offices in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi in the early 1990s. After four years of exploring the market, we officially established Zamil Steel Buildings Vietnam Co., Ltd. and its first factory in Hanoi in 1997.”
In the review of the company’s performance and achievement over the past 25 years, the General Director of Zamil Steel Buildings Vietnam, Mr. Krishnakanth Kodukula, emphasized the expansion of the company’s sales network and production facilities:
• From having only one factory in Hanoi with an initial capacity of 600MT/month in 1997, Zamil Steel Vietnam now owns two state-of-the-art plants in Noi Bai Industrial Zone (Hanoi) and Amata Industrial Park (Dong Nai), with total capacity reaching up to 120,000 metric tons of steel structures per year, making Zamil Steel Vietnam one of the largest steel structure manufacturers in Vietnam and ASEAN region.
• The sales network of Zamil Steel Vietnam has significantly expanded with 13 representative offices in 10 countries and a team of more than 1,100 staff and workers.
• As of June 2022, Zamil Steel Vietnam has delivered more than 7,000 projects for customers all over the world.
