Top 50 most influential suppliers named in inaugural power list
With 12,000 staff in 60 countries, the group’s influence in construction supply has been far reaching. The diverse operation spans air-conditioning manufacturing to architectural glass processing, plastics to steel fabrication and paints and cranes to heavy process equipment.
The top Dubai-based company on the list is Ducab, in third place. With copper being the most volatile product when it comes to price, few people can doubt the contribution that Ducab has made to the industry since it was formed 31 years ago. In recent times it has supplied cables for some of the world’s prestigious projects the including the Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, Grand Mosque, Burj Al Arab and Emirates Palace. More recently, it also worked on the brand new Mirdiff City Centre project.
While our list as been based on contributions to GCC projects, the strong presence of foreign suppliers is notable. At Number 14 on the list is China-based LiuGong, which during the past year has been recognized as an emerging leader in global construction equipment.
The list contains 14 companies from UAE and eight from Saudi Arabia, but also touches on Germany, the UK, the US, plus other European and Asian nations. See the full list here.
