Jaffer ... Proclad is going strong

Proclad launches 3rd production line

An investment is under way to set up a new product line in pipe bending, heat treatment and deep bore machining. This will become operational in Q2

Proclad, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) clad pipes, pipes, fittings, flanges and piping/pipeline spools, has announced the launch of its third production line in Dubai capable of producing 1,500 metric tonnes of nickel alloy welding overlay using a new cutting-edge technology.

Yaseen M Jaffer, Proclad Group’s chief executive officer says: "We at Proclad are going strong, even with the oil prices tumbling. We are prepared for any new project. We believe that Proclad’s high-end technology, research and development and the training that we offer through our Academy contribute in a major way towards our success, thus making us a market leader."

He says: "Thanks to the guidance of our rulers, we haven’t slowed down in the UAE, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. A total of Dh200 million ($54.4 million) was invested in the expansion that has now elevated us beyond our competition."

With a commitment to providing clients with the complete service, Proclad has developed a group of specialist companies through a combination of investment and acquisition. Hence, the launch of the third production line with a brand new technology in producing "nickel alloy welding overlay".

A further investment is under way now to establish a new product line in pipe bending, heat treatment and deep bore machining. This will become operational in the second quarter of 2016, Jaffer says.

In 1970, Proclad started its operations in Scotland, UK; and then started its manufacturing facility in Abu Dhabi in 1996. In 2005, Proclad expanded to Singapore and in 2010, it further expanded to a 50,000 square metre state-of-the-art facility in Dubai’s Technopark.

Today Proclad has firmly established itself as one of the leading suppliers of integrated solutions to the global energy market with manufacturing facilities in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, UK and Singapore.

Proclad is the only cladding company located in the UAE producing and exporting to the global market. This new production phase will further assert Proclad as the only site in the world that can supply to national and international oil/gas operating companies including Adnoc-Opco, PDO, KOC, Saudi Aramco, BP, Shell, ExxonMobil, Chevron, Occidental, Pertamina, Turkmen Gas, Total, Petrobras and ADOC, Japan, and to EPC companies such Technip, Petrofac, Dodsal, Alsa, Galfar, Wika, Rekayasa, J Ray McDermott, Aker, Worley Parsons, Samsung, Hyundai, SKEC, GS E&C, Saipem, Tecnicas Reunidas, NPCC, Larson & Toubro, Tecnimont and Fluor.
