Alhamad Construction & Development Company and Balexo in BFH contract
Alhamad Construction and Development Company, the main contractor for phase one of the Bahrain Financial Harbour, has signed an agreement with Bahrain Aluminium Extrusion Company (Balexco), to supply aluminium requirements for the project.
The agreement was signed at the Balexco headquarters in the Sitra Industrial Area by Alhamad president Nashaat Sahaounah and Balexco general manager Ali Al Abbasi.
The signing ceremony was attended by Dadabhai Group managing director Quraish Dadabhai, Alhamad deputy general manager Thamin Fakhouri and Balexco managing director Abdullatif Alhazim.
Sahaounah said the agreement was signed to forge closer links between Alhamad and Bahraini companies.
"This agreement comes as part of our policy to include more Bahraini companies with us in executing this huge and strategic project and we are proud to have Balexco with us as it is one of the best manufacturer of aluminium in the region," he said.
Al Abbasi said Balexco was proud to be part of the project, which is one of the most important economic projects in Bahrain.
“We also have a good record of supplying the best quality aluminium to projects in the Gulf and the Middle East,” he said.
