2.     Do you only sell products or supervise operations as well?

The industries we are in are based on major manufacturing of building materials elements. However, post manufacturing processing such as logistics, installation, erection, and application are taking care of fully by us if requested by the customer. In fact, we do also serve pre-manufacturing stages; for example, through each factory design & technical departments, many prospects, options, and value engineering  will be furnished.

3.     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; and based on a solid structure, the vision and mission were set. These are

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.

4.     A young but already well-established and successful company, what are the reasons of your success in such a short period?

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 gained many medium to large size projects in Qatar. It is just about how to let your customers feel comfortable relying on you, and providing them with the best of materials and services. 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.
5.     How are your operations managed and what can you say about customer satisfaction?

Our underlying strategy revolves around establishing and building on strong, long-lasting relationships with key clients and gaining leverage upon shareholder strengths. This will be achieved through a series of steps, starting with tapping into the technical expertise and know-how of CPC-International, along with the support of its Qatar-based parent companies, in establishing the business in Qatar. Moving forward, we will approach all major potential clients in Qatar as well as their sister contracting companies and parent companies in order to qualify as their preferred supplier for Real Estate development and construction.
Finally, once we have reached the phase of seizing enough momentum in the market to acquire a large client base, our objective is to maintain and enhance our established status through continuous innovation and customer satisfaction.

6.     Do you only cater only 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’s "exportable" products and services. QDCPC intends to actively target such export markets. Yes, we do have expansion plans; but these are still under study.
7.     What can you say about the Qatari construction market? How do you see its progress towards WC2022?

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.
