Company is rapidly completing this big own project with its own manpower and engineers. A step forward to achieve company’s mission.
KCC & KZC Technologies:
Company is going to introduce two revolutionary technologies. These technologies are KCC (K-Chromium Carbide) and KZC (Zinc Ceramic Coating). GCTC will provide repair & maintenance services by using these two revolutionary technologies. In particular, the valve body inner surface treatment by the KCC on maximizing the service life by having a corrosion / abrasion resistance, such as seat & ball. KCC surface treatment developed by GCTC shows surface hardness HV1300 and friction coefficient 0.4. It prevents abrasion caused by composites and reduces corrosion owing to high acid resistance.
Valves Assembling Unit:
Company is starting to valves assembling and treatment of valves locally. Company have a partnership with KST Plant Company South Korea.
GCTC has the whole region of Saudi Arabia to market its advanced technology based services. GCTC is going to start its operation from Dammam city, eastern province of Saudi Arabia and with the passage of time it will expand its operations up to the whole region of Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi Railways Company (SAR) was founded in 2006 by the Public Investments Fund (PIF) in order to implement a railway project linking the northern region with both the eastern and central regions of the Kingdom, including the operation and management of the project with the necessary competence in accordance with optimal economic operating parameters, through applying state-of-the-art global standards of performance and safety.
Railway projects in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia open up new prospects for business and massive investments in a variety of fields.
These projects are spread over various regions of the Kingdom and take several forms of inter-city passenger and cargo trains and in-city metro networks.
The Saudi Railways Company (SAR) has been commissioned with carrying out the bulk of these projects, particularly:
• Railway network of over 4,500 km in length
• Six passenger transport stations
• Nine cargo transport stations
• Three mineral transport stations
• 25 support buildings
• A fully integrated train maintenance city
Notwithstanding the recent establishment of the company and the magnitude of business it is handling, SAR has succeeded in operating one of the most important lines (Mining line), which currently operates two trains to transport phosphate and bauxite from Hazm Al-Jalamid and Albaeatha to the processing and export facilities of Ma’aden in Ras Al-Khair city on the Arabian Gulf. SAR is currently working on completing the remaining parts of its network to serve the industrial facilities in the Industrial City of Jubail and the city of Wa’d Alshamal.
At the level of passenger travel and public cargo, SAR’s target is to start commissioning during the second half of 2015 of a railway line running from the center of the kingdom to the far north, serving six administrative regions.

Asharqia Chamber launched the third session of the program by the end of April.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors of Asharqia Chamber, Mr. Abdul Hakim Al-Khalidi, announced the readiness of the Chamber to launch its third session of the facilitation program (Tasheel), hosted by SABIC on Sunday, April 29, 2018.
On April 2017, Asharqia Chamber launched Tasheel program to support the business sector in the Eastern Province by coordinating and combining this sector with the major strategic companies in the Kingdom in order to identify the products of these companies and to market their investment opportunities, which would enrich the Eastern Region with more production and operation opportunities for national forces.
Al Khalidi said that the current session of the program will show the role and efforts of SABIC in the localization of industries and services, a comprehensive presentation on the investment opportunities available to it, as well as a special registration hall, which includes a suite of suites that allow business and local investors to record their data as potential suppliers. In addition, direct meetings would be hold between businessmen and officials in charge from SABIC to provide consultations and facilitate the procedures of contracting. He stressed the importance of the program as it comes in line with the vision of the Kingdom of 2030, which aims to increase the dependence on the local component, the settlement of supporting industries, and achieving balanced development.
AlKhalidi explained that the hosting of the Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), the largest non-oil industrial company in the Middle East, and one of the top 10 petrochemical companies in the world, is a strong support for investment in the region and is in line with national plans of localization of both industries and national capital.
Alkhaldi emphasized, “”Asharqia Chamber will always strive to provide excellent services that meet the expectations of the business sector.” He also pointed out that the program had contributed significantly after hosting Saudi Aramco and Saudi Electricity Company in its first and second sessions, which enrich the investment movement in the region.

- Q & A
GCTC (Gulf Corners for Trading & General Contracting Company) is introducing two most recent and advanced technologies on behalf of our partner KST Plant Co., Korea. These surface treatment technologies are for Corrosion, Erosion, Abrasion resistance and surface hardness of metals.
On 17th of September GCTC presented these technologies to Ministry of Environment Water and Agriculture. They respond well and realized that these technologies are cost effective and very useful for the organization. A little description for KCC & KNN is given below.
KCC (Chormium Carbide) Alloying technology is for corrosion, erosion, abrasion resistance and surface hardening. This is revolutionary technology and by applying this technology we can extend the life of any metal assets up to 2 to 5 times as compare to original state of that metal asset.
KZC (Zinc Ceramic) technology is specifically developed for the purpose of corrosion. If we compare this technology to any of other well-known treatments i.e. Hot Dip Galvanized it will protect the metal up to minimum twice time.
