Khayyat Contracting & Trading (KCT) is pressing ahead with plans to improve its supply chain operations, the company said.
It is working on new factories to deliver its own materials, while also searching for the best international suppliers to stock.
“As a group we are building towards having a self-sufficient company in many areas; we already have factories for marble, aluminium and gypsum,” said CEO Mohammed Moutaz Khayyat.
The company said that once its factories and operational, it will aim to deliver ‘some of the highest quality materials and components in Qatar to KCT’s projects’.
KCT is also looking to expand in new markets, branching out into new areas around the world.
“Our strategy is to rely on the world market, not just the Gulf or Arab markets, in order to bring new material into the country,” Khayyat commented.
“We are particularly interested in Europe, where there are many fresh alternatives, and we are keeping track of developments at building fairs.”
