UNICOIL (Universal Metal Coating Company) was established in 1997 as the first company in the Middle East to manufacture pre-painted steel and aluminum coils, and since then it has emerged as a leader in the steel coil coating and pre-painting industry in regional markets. UNICOIL was established by two industrial pioneers (namely Zamil Group Holding Company and Rashed Abdul Rahman AlRashed & Sons Group) as a joint venture trading in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with a world leader in the pre-painted steel industry (BHP of Australia). UNICOIL then became a 100% Saudi-owned company in 2004. With manufacturing facilities located in the industrial cities of Al-Jubail and Jeddah, its five production lines now have installed annual production capacities of 400,000 metric tons for HRC pickling, 340,000 metric tons for CRC, 250,000 metric tons for Galvanized Steel Coils, 210,000 metric tons of Pre-Painted Steel Coils, plus 18 million linear meters of Roll Formed Steel Sheets. UNICOIL now occupies a dominant position in the Middle East and North Africa regions.
