BUTEC Qatar WLL8G9F+428, Doha, Qatar
BUTEC, “Bureau Technique d’Etudes et de Construction”, or Technical Office for Engineering and Construction, was conceived as an EPC contractor some 50 years ago, long before the concept or its acronym even existed.
As an innovative and new entity, this was a telling start that subsequently set the tone for the next 50 years. BUTEC was then, as it is now, a contractor that strived to be at the forefront of its field and a leader to a better way of doing business. BUTEC never believed that modernity was only a status to achieve but rather a path to forge and a continuous motor to remain ahead.
A bold contractor, who believes more in the capacity of its men and women to learn, improve, innovate and deliver than in the book value of depreciating machinery.
A faithful and prudent contractor, who understands that the essence of its role is to make good on its contractual obligations, act in the best interest of its clients and has never failed one in 50 years.
A competitive and competent contractor, who can, in every country it is active in, have the cost structure of a local contractor and the technical expertise of an international contractor.
Finally, a company that has retained the values of a family while having the World Bank, through the IFC, as a shareholder.
I am honored to have been chairman of this groundbreaking and successful contracting company since 2015 and relish the next phase of our growth path. The challenge for us all is not an easy one; in these uncertain times, we look to preserve the BUTEC tradition of perpetual, dynamic and yet careful movement which will keep us ahead of the game and will allow us to grow. I look to each one of you to play your specific and essential part in the exciting journey we have embarked upon.
