2. What can you say about the mission and the vision of the company?
Thorough studies and research have been done to set the strategies for establishing QD-CPC for perfection; based on solid structure the vision and mission were set; these are
“TO BE THE PIONEER IN PROVIDING YOUR COMPLETE BUILDING SOLUTION”.
Our mission is to establish a one-stop-shop integrated building materials manufacturing company in Qatar, which will capitalize on the growth opportunities emerging in the Qatari Real Estate Development and Construction sector. Ultimately, we aim to build customer loyalty and gain market preference achieving the status of a key player in Qatar’s building materials industry over the next five years.
3. A young but already well-established and successful company, what are the reasons of your success in a very short time?
In fact, we are not young in Qatar anymore since the establishment started in 2011; however, in a very short period of time, we have gain many medium to large projects in Qatar to supply and serve. It is just about how to let your customers feel comfortable relying on you providing them the best. In addition, the “know-how” since 1982 has been transferred from CPC Holding (Construction Products Company – KSA) to us in Qatar along with the factories’ very-well-known brand names in the region; namely PREMCO PRECAST, PREMCO READYMIX, United Arab Aluminum Company, and SACODECO for WOOD & INTERIOR FINISHES.
4. Do you only cater for the Qatari construction market? Do you have expansion plans?
The local Qatari market is obviously the key market targeted by QDCPC. However, and as the opportunities may arise, neighboring countries represent also an excellent opportunity for QDCPC "exportable" products and services. QDCPC intends to actively target such export markets.
Yes, we do have expansion plans; but these are still under study.
5. What can you say about the Qatari construction market? How do you see its progress towards 2022, the World Cup deadline and the Qatar Vision 2030?
Construction growth in Qatar is mainly driven by the National Vision 2030 and the hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, through which the construction industry is expecting substantial growth, primarily by an increase in construction activities in terms of infrastructure and real estate.
Hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup is undoubtedly the single biggest construction-related event in Qatar, boosted by major infrastructure projects such as Lusail and Musheireb, as well as new roads and highways, and the expansion of the Hamad International Airport and the new metro in Doha.
To answer your question about the World Cup deadline, Qatar is much smarter than to miss it.
6. Is this your first time participating in Project Qatar, if not what can you say about this biggest construction show in the region?
We have participated in Project Qatar 2012 with our stand. At that time, we were in the establishment phase building our building material factories.
I believe Project Qatar has turned to a hub where regional and international industry professionals meet and emphasizing the necessity of latest products and services for a fast growing Qatari Construction Sector.
7. As a Silver Sponsor to Project Qatar, what new products will be showcased on your stand?
We have decided to be the silver sponsor of Project Qatar 2015 rather than only having a stand since this exhibition heavily supports the National Vision 2030 and hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
8. Any message to the visitors of PQ 2015?
As mentioned before, Project Qatar is a hub where regional and international industry professionals meet; it turned to an important event that cannot be missed as a network with top enterprises from across the region.
