Qatar Asphalt Company WLL (QAC) was established in Qatar in 2000 specifically to support the ever-growing road and infrastructure demands of our emerging market. The company’s founding partner and Managing Director hails from a long-legacy of road and infrastructure works, initially commenced first by his father in 1937 in Palestine and expanding to the State of Qatar in 1962, before he handing over the business to the current management in 1984. This heritage of road and infrastructure works through several generations places QAC in a single unique position of now upgrading and expanding some of their original works that were executed decades ago; it has grown to serve the State of Qatar through its many phases of growth.
Today, QAC is firmly rooted within the State of Qatar as one of only a few preferred and solid road and infrastructure contractors. The company is a certified ISO 9001: 2008 and fully compliant with all the standard requirements. This has enabled the company to flourish and position itself for the much anticipated capital expenditure and expansion the State of Qatar by structuring itself to team with the top global contractors in the world and to diversify into establishing key and strategic subsidiaries to support the core business and the full supply chain of needs in this niche arena. This includes:
- Al Arab Material Testing WLL (AMTL)
- United Trading Group WLL (UTG)
- United Group for Safety and Security WLL
- Qatar Asphalt Plant Co. WLL
Today QAC is involved in all aspects of road and infrastructure works; from new construction, expansion, and maintenance, joint ventures with global contractors, subcontracting and supply. We enjoy exclusive arrangements on larger programs in order to focus efforts and remain loyal to our partners while lending our distinctive means and methods for delivery that are unique to the requirements and parameters of the State of Qatar.
QAC’s Asphalt Plant has a nominal capacity of 800 tons per day which can be augmented, when necessary, through our strategic partners and suppliers. QAC wholly owns and operates an extensive fleet of earthmoving, construction and asphalt laying equipment. QAC prides itself on delivering projects safely and to a high quality. Its quality control system is fortified by high quality control thru Al Arab Material Testing Laboratories (AMTL) wll established in 1992, a certified Grade A independent laboratory. Strategically planned operating subsidiaries and associate companies enable and ensure the quality and versatility for the company, not only to keep ahead of its local competition, but moreover, to remain on a par with increasing international competitors. A combination of astute awareness and careful deliberation, together with imaginative ingenuity, encompasses QAC’s business philosophy.
In more recent times, we have further diversified outside of Qatar and the GCC to eastern and western Africa as a contractor of choice for the GCC funds investing in infrastructure works in these foreign nations. We continue to pursue and investigate greater opportunities to support our loyal clients wherever they may invest.
