The supply of s teel, mainly to the construction industry, is a major activity of GEAP and one in which they have, for many decades , been a major supplier to some of the largest companies in the UAE and Oman.

The expertise of GEAP's management, being able to manage the supply and delivery of steel, on a contract basis at competitive prices, managing the volatility of supply and pricing of the products, as well as providing logistics services to its customers via its own fleet of delivery trucks, cranes and storage areas, has resulted in the Company becoming a P referred S upplier to most of the larger and prestigious construction projects in the UAE and Oman. The purchase and supply of steel are managed by strict internal procedures and documentation.

Currently GEAP supplies 15 % of the total market requirement and has recently grown its monthly supply of steel to 45,000 tonnes per month. The GEAP management has projected and budgeted that this figure will become 65,000 tonnes per month by the end of 2008, resulting in a market share of 20 %.

In addition to supplying steel rebars directly to the end users, GEAP has also become involved in downstream added value services of cutting and bending steel rebars, using sophisticated computerized equipment through its wholly-owned subsidirary, G-2 International LLC , which was established in 1992.
