The Alam Steel Group was founded in 1979 by its current chairman, Mr. Shyam Alamchand Bhatia. The company can trace its roots as a small building materials trading firm under the name Alam Traders LLC and was engaged in the supply of steel, cement, and timber to the growing construction industry in the UAE. The firm grew to become one of the largest diversified building material trading firms in the region.
In 2002, the firm decided to specialize in the steel industry and was rebranded as Alam Steel Ltd. The company was focused in developing into a leading diversified steel distribution and processing company.
In 2007, Alam Steel Industries was established to process reinforcement bars for the construction industry. With an annual capacity of 360,000 tons per year, it is one of the largest processing centres in the region and was the first to attain a UK CARES certification.
in 2008, Macsteel Gulf FZCO was setup as a 50:50 JV between the Alam Steel Group and Macsteel Group, one of the largest steel firms in the world to process flat and long products for the Hydrocarbon Industry.
Today under the leadership of the Bhatia family, the Group continues to prosper in the region and embodies the values instilled by its founder for all its stakeholders.
