Dear Stakeholders,

I wish our fellow colleagues at home and abroad, partner companies, customers, suppliers and all our stakeholders happiness and fulfillment in all that you do.

2020 was a year of unrivaled adversities with the effects of COVID-19 fueling great social and economic difficulties.

UIS was able to respond quickly to the crisis and prepare for the future with agility because of our dedicated workforce who went above and beyond to overcome the difficulties of the company. I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest appreciation to all our colleagues who put the interest of UIS above their own.

Dear UIS family members,

Businesses are facing the greatest uncertainty from COVID-19 but the new year will not only come with new challenges but with new opportunities.

The global economy is expected to show a gradual recovery. There is going to be sustained economic activity, mixed with uncertainty and immense opportunities.

This also presents us with a unique opportunity to march ahead in our journey for sustainability of the organization and general prosperity of all the stakeholders.

I am sure that with the help of able leadership and dedicated work force, we would successfully change these challenges into opportunities and march ahead.

First and foremost, we must put safety above all other core values to create a safe and healthy workplace.

UIS puts utmost importance to the safety of all our UIS family members. Last year, COVID-19, did unprecedented damage. But the management of UIS is absolutely clear that the safety of our work force is of utmost importance and everything else comes after. We have successfully tackled the issue and I am sure that we would continue to do the same this year as well, albeit with more success.

UIS, in the past 3 years, has made a name for itself as a reliable and quality supplier of steel. This is the case not only in the GCC market but in the extremely competitive and quality conscious markets of USA and Europe.

This has been made possible by the in-place management philosophy of wellbeing of the stakeholders for perpetuity. We want to be known as serious and quality supplier of steel for many, many years to come.

I would wish and convey my best wishes for this new year of 2021.

I hope that 2021 brings our UIS’s Family, our group companies, customers, partners, suppliers and all stakeholders greater happiness and health.

Happy New Year!
