United Steel Company (“SULB”) BSC (c) is the Middle East region’s first fully integrated medium and heavy beams and structural steel sections producer. Located in the Kingdom of Bahrain, SULB is a joint venture between Gulf United Steel Holding Company (“Foulath”) BSC (c), the Middle East’s leading steel investment vehicle and holding company (owning 51% of SULB), and Japan’s Yamato Kogyo Co., Ltd, a leading global beams and structural sections producer (owning 49% of SULB).
SULB’s facilities are being established within Foulath’s existing state-of-the-art steel production complex located in Bahrain’s Hidd Industrial Area.
SULB will be the lowest cost producer of its kind in the world and, once fully operational, will replace approximately 14% of the current imports of medium and heavy beams and structural sections into the Middle East markets.
The project is being developed in co-operation with world leading steel industry and technical partners.
