I want to introduce you to a Spanish family owned contracting company called ECISA and our sister company HARINSA QATAR. Incorporated in 1968 ECISA is a renowned contractor with a solid presence throughout Spain that nowadays works in another 10 countries due to a successful international expansion.
Our project is based upon five basic action lines; reliability in business, professionalism as a way of behaving, compliance with the law, social commitment and a permanent and constant adaptation and innovation. Following these principles I feel very proud saying we have achieved our commitments in more than 2.000 projects since I created the company 48 years ago.
ECISA is formed as one of the main business groups of the Valencian Region in Spain, not only due to its size but also because of the level of diversity in business and markets achieved which has, without a doubt, made us a stronger organization less vulnerable to the changes which might appear in our economic environment. We have also implemented strategic measures as well as a great adaptation capability , financial debt reduction and a bet for internationalization brought us to become a dynamic and flexible group of companies present in Spain, Qatar, Portugal, Ireland, Mozambique, Algeria, Chile, Taiwan, UAE and Ghana.
Qatar was and is our prime market worldwide. We arrived to Doha in 2007 and developed HARINSA QATAR looking for opportunities based on our huge experience and the great potential of this country. With the unconditional support of our previous partner Khaled Majid Al Marzouqui we have been able to succeed on outstanding projects for clients such as Private Engineering Office or Qatar Foundation.
Being one of the most experienced European skyscrapers contractor with more than 35 towers built through our history, nowadays we raise 6 towers in Qatar, 3 five star luxury hotels in West Bay and 3 towers at the Pearl as well as other projects.
One of the most important milestones for ECISA and HARINSA QATAR since its foundation has been the agreement with our new partner AL ALFIA HOLDING. When I see our company I feel it exceeds my expectations and now with our new partner and shareholder both in ECISA and HARINSA QATAR I am sure we have a bright business future together around the world.
This will be possible, thanks to our global portfolio of more than 520 million Euro, of which 85% correspond to international markets, but above all, thanks to the trust that, day to day, award us our public and private clients, the support provided by the financial means, our suppliers and collaborators, and specially to the exemplary performance of the team of professionals that integrate the company wherever the market challenges take us. I want to thank them all for being by our side in the pledge to move forward with this project of solid familiar company that, without doubt, is prepared to continue successfully fulfilling the challenges of the future.
1937 - 2014
