JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Premier Composite Technologies (PCT) is this week celebrating its 5th Year anniversary, having set up in Dubai to successfully serve the Architectural and Marine market in 2006. Premier Composite Technologies was founded in 2006 by a team of 3, including Managing Director Hannes Waimer, with the aim of supplying bespoke engineered lightweight composite structures into the Middle Eastern Architectural and Marine market.
Today, the company works closely with a number of prestigious European architects including SL Rasch, Snohetta and Foster + Partners, has grown to over 670 people, and has evolved into building the largest clock tower in the world as well as production race boats including the FARR 400.
PCT celebrated the 5th year anniversary by holding a company BBQ for all staff around the test construction of the Dokaae Tower’s 23m composite Hilal, which will be placed on the top of the Dokaae Tower - the largest clock tower in the world.
Premier Composite Technologies has supplied the uppermost 370 metres of the 601m tower, a construction that involves over 60,000m2 of composite cladding. This includes the four epoxy glass fibre clock faces, two of which measure 43m in diameter, as well as the 23m carbon clock hands and the 23m self-supporting carbon Hilal.
Speaking of the company’s success, Hannes Waimer, MD, Premier Composite Technologies comments: “Over the past five years, PCT has seen tremendous growth at an incredibly fast pace. This is just the start. As we move forward, we are looking more closely at business development, R&D, new technology and new machinery that will help us to ramp up production more efficiently. As the benefits of working with composite materials become understood, more and more opportunities are presenting themselves. This is a very exciting time.”
