Capabilities and Achievements

PCT continues to investment in new equipment and machinery for R&D and production, as well as in new software and process implementation for increased efficiency.

Innovation is a key factor in differentiating PCT from its peers. In 2015, the Company launched two new business units, the Automotive and the Premier Composite Repairs Divisions (PCRS) in addition to the establishment of a state-of- the-art Marble Factory and a dedicated UHPC mixing plant to keep up with its growth strategy.

Over the years, PCT is proud of its work realised in high profile architectural design projects, such as the world’s largest clock tower, the Dokaae Tower (KSA), the composite roof panels for the Haramain Railway Station (KSA) and the Domes for the New Assembly Hall in Angola spanning across a diameter of 44 meters and a height of approximately 23 metres.

PCT also built the Mataf Elevated Walkway, the largest carbon fibre reinforced civil structure in the world comprising of two walkways. The outer ring stands 13 metres high whilst the lower second ring stands 4 metres high. A total of 400 tons of carbon fibre composites was used and the structure was designed to accommodate up to 35,000 people. The Mataf Elevated Walkway was a temporary structure to allow for expansion works along the main building and has now been decommissioned.

Among other special projects, PCT have been appointed as principal contractors in building of The Glass Lantern, a feature at the new Apple store in Istanbul, Turkey, that has been presented with “2014 The Supreme Award for Structural Engineering Excellence”, as well as the “Award for Commercial or Retail Structures”. The Lantern, a stunning and unique glass structure which floods the store below with light, is made up of only five elements: four 10m x 3m laminated glass walls, supporting a roof made of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer.

Already a household name in the boat building industry, PCT now have a team that is stronger than ever, with resources that are second to none, delivering products in power and sailing that are performing at the highest international levels. From the early days of building modest wooden dhows for the local market, the business has now evolved into building high performance ocean racing yachts.

The Rail, Aerospace and the newly launched Automotive division continue to receive growing interest from industry giants and the Company is well positioned to steadily build on previous successes. The Aerospace business will be strengthened as the unit move into new dedicated facilities to manage significant growth in new contracts. PCT’s dedicated Automotive manufacturing facility will see best practice initiatives implemented to meet the demands of major car companies from around the world.

PCT achieved certification to the AS9100 C/ EN 9100:2009 aerospace standard in March 2016, a standardised quality management system for the aerospace and defence industry. With high reliability and full traceability, compliance is normally a condition for doing business within the industry. Certification is based upon months of preparation which culminates in an extensive third party audit. The certificate is renewed every three years and is subject to continuous assessment.

The AS9100 C/ EN 9100:2009 standard is considered the first key to unlocking access to the aerospace industry. As of today PCT are one of only two composite manufacturing companies within the UAE that have achieved certification to this highly valued international aerospace quality standard.

Premier Composite Repairs (PCR) has been established to provide engineered composite repair solutions to restore the structural integrity of pipelines, pipework and vessels of any given diameter and geometry. Following months of highly focussed development work to deliver optimised solutions, the PCR team are now ready to bring significant turnover growth to PCT.

The company embraced the Dubai Chamber’s CSR initiatives in 2014 and has successfully been awarded the CSR label for the second year in succession.

Plant and Machinery

PCT has ten manufacturing sites based in Dubai Investment Park, with a total production area of up to 64,250m2. These facilities, all of which are within a six kilometre radius, are air-conditioned and climate controlled. Facilities include the PCT HQ that houses as factory as well as the corporate office that houses the architects, design engineers, chemists, account managers, purchasing, finance, HR and marketing teams.

The factories have designated zones for production, prototyping, assembly, carpentry and metal work. In addition there is also a separate facility for tiling and trimming all end parts.

The facilities include state-of-the-art production technology including a 6-axis CNC milling machines that machines metal components; the largest 5-axis CNC milling machine in the Middle East, plus a dozen 3-axis milling machines, water jet cutting machine, CNC cutting tables, CNC wire cutting machines and a dedicated UHPC mixer plant. The 6 and 5-axis CNC milling machines are the heart of the PCT’s production capabilities, milling raw blocks into the exact geometry of the required moulds.

Prototyping and R&D

PCT has a dedicated team and facility for the production of mock ups, prototypes and samples that are requested by architects and clients to assist in the design development and decision making of materials and detail solutions for the perfect finish for their designs.

Completed to the highest of standards, parts can be finished in almost anything from paints, resins, timber and veneers to stainless steel, acrylic or glass mosaics.

A dedicated in-house R&D unit has been developing some innovative structural building envelope solutions and self-supportive lightweight roof structures. After further implementation and testing the Company will evaluate the possibility to register them as patented.
