HistoryEdit

BSI-Steel was set up to meet the requirements of the rapidly growing construction market in Qatar, where all pre-engineered metal buildings (PEBs) were imported from neighbouring countries. The company and its first factory in the Doha New Industrial Area were inaugurated by Mohammad Saleh Al Sada, Minister of State for Industry and Energy Affairs. The inauguration ceremony was attended by Al Sadah, some of his associates from the Ministry of Energy and Industry and a group of local Qatari businessmen.[2] They launched operations in 2006 with a capacity of 100 to 150 tonnes per month (TPM). However, since the company moved to its new 10,000m² facility in the Doha New Industrial Area in October 2008, the company's output has increased tenfold. In 2010, BSI-Steel booked orders at a rate of 800 to 1,000 TPM and further increased its sales in 2011.[3] They service Qatar and export markets by providing their clients with PEBs in the region.
