Qatar's Ashghal purchases 100m tonnes of materials
Ashghal will be provided with 51m tonnes of gabbro and 41m tonnes of limestone under a five-year contract with Qatar Primary Materials Company
Qatar's Public Works Authority (Ashghal) and Qatar Primary Materials Company (QPMC) have signed an agreement aimed at supplying the infrastructure authority over 100m tonnes of building materials, within a span of five years.
Ashghal president Nasser bin Ali al-Mawlawi and QPMC chairman Abdulaziz bin Abdullah al-Ansari signed the agreement.
The deal will provide Ashghal 51m tonnes of gabbro and 41m tonnes of limestone, as part of ongoing efforts to ensure the availability of construction materials for Ashghal’s planned infrastructure development projects.
QPMC guaranteed that the prices of the raw materials are fixed in the local market, and enough quantities are available for the first few years of the deal, Gulf Times reported.
“The agreement confirms that QPMC has become the trusted arm in Qatar and the region. It can be relied on to provide primary materials of gabbro and limestone, as well as fine and washed sand within the required quantities for the implementation of major projects in Qatar,” al-Ansari said.
He added: “We consider Ashghal as QPMC’s strategic partner, and this co-operation will surely enhance projects in the pipeline.”
