Many South Korean building & construction materials enterprises will be unveiling their wide product ranges at the Big 5 Show 2011, which will be held in Dubai from Nov. 21 through 24.

Amid the ongoing crisis of instability in the global financial system triggered by some European countries, various Korean companies are participating in the Show to advance into the Middle East markets and other global markets as well.

Spacelink Corporation, which started its venture in 1997, will be showcasing its recently released eco-friendly jet hand dryer called “Bio JangPoong” that presently leads the market with a customer-oriented stylish design, as well as distinguishing features. With the high-speed air blower, the innovatively designed dryer removes water on hands within only 7 to 10 seconds, boasting better performance than the conventional heated hand dryer and drawing strong attention, especially among the building & construction companies involved in projects in the region.

Alcopanel Co., Ltd. plans to unveil its innovatively designed construction material for the upcoming exhibition, under the brand name of Alcopanel, an excellent new material for construction. It features lightness but rigidity and flatness, incorporating the functions of insulation and sound-blocking for applications in protecting buildings and expressing the structure’s features.

Unovics ENC has prepared its flagship engineered item VOS Open Spring that is widely recognized, due to its unique features of open-type, anti-vibration mount, improved high efficiency of anti-vibration, easy to adjust level by control bolt, optimized diameter and working height for stability of right and left, top and bottom, and visually easy checkable spring deflection.

The Big 5 international building & construction show, which is categorized into three sections of site infrastructure, facility services and plant machinery & vehicles, will be displaying a variety of exhibits including Building Supplies, Repair, Electrical Engineering, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration, Glass Construction, Cleaning Technology, Water Technology, Water Supply, Sewage Water Technology, Irrigation Plants, Drilling Equipment, Sea Water Desalination Plants, Generators, Measuring Equipment, Regulating and Control Technology, Control Equipment, Sewerage, Pumps, Tubes, Valves, and Environmental Engineering.

The Middle East attracts keen attention from the global building & construction industry with large-scale development projects

According to reliable sources, the Gulf region, including United Arab Emirates, remains a strategically important area of the world with over 65% of the world’s oil reserves. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) - the main trading bloc in the region - comprises Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar.

There are large-scale developments encompassing Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria, etc. to house the increasing population along with substantial investments going into infrastructure. And also, it was noted that all the areas, including Iran and the Indian sub-continent, have enormous commercial potential, so currently there is increasingly brisk trading with the GCC states.

Given the fact that there are increasing trading opportunities in the region with the continuing integration of countries within the GCC, all participating businesses are expected to seize the excellent opportunities to further bolster their business presence in the region.

South Korean construction firms preparing for the Middle East region’s restoration project

South Korean construction businesses are getting ready to jump into an estimated $120 billion worth reconstruction project in Libya.

Daewoo E&C, which participated in six earlier projects in Libya, will dispatch a working group for establishing measures for the post-Libyan war era, including gathering all kinds of information on the country and construction sites run by Daewoo E&C.

Hyundai E&C, currently conducting a $2.63 billion power plant construction project in Al-Khalij, also plans to return to the site as soon as the political unrest dies down.

Won Construction, which is heading a large-scale housing project to build around 7,000 homes in places like Darnah, has already begun its initiative of dispatching few working members to the location, according to Korea’s Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs (MLTM). Participating in the construction of a $270 billion thermal power plant, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction also has a plan to send working-level officials to related local facilities when safety is ensured.

In line with the private sector’s moves, the Korean government is also taking action to provide support for Korean businesses operating in Libya to return to their construction sites and help Libya’s restoration projects in the post-Gaddafi era.

Easy Spray Gun (Chameleon4)

Cheil Coating Inc. is one of the leading Korean companies manufacturing paint coating products. With its own technology, the company is manufacturing various models of paint coating products by coating on the surfaces of glass, metal, acrylic and wood.

These include noise and vibration controllers for different areas of buildings, semiconductor plants, metro projects, various plants etc., together with consulting, measurements and analysis, etc.

Construction Material
