Ethiopian Steel plc, one of the old established foreign direct investments (FDI) since the free economy was endorsed, launched the latest steel roofing sheet product  which is coated with aluminum zinc, to the Ethiopian market.
The company which is known for making roofing sheet under the brand name Anbessa has been engaged in the steel manufacturing industry for the last 23 years.
At the launching event held on June 21 at Getfam Hotel it introduced the roofing sheet called Dumuzas.
Pankaj Gupta, Ethiopian Steel Business Head, said that the product is the latest technology in the global steel roofing market.
“So far we understand that we are the pioneer and the only one producing this kind  of roofing sheet that is coated with aluminum zinc,” he told Capital.
According the explanation at the launching event, Dumuzas is better in many ways when compared with the traditional galvanized roofing sheet. According to experts at Ethiopian Steel, which is a company under Safal Group, the product has a long life span which is  superior in corrosion resistance, heat reflectivity and head resistance over galvanized sheet, which makes the product preferable for weather like Ethiopia.
The company that has four manufacturing industries in Addis Ababa, Gonder, Hawassa and Mekele, also features several showrooms throughout the country.
Ethiopian Steel reported that their  factories have a production capacity  of over 30,000 metric tons per annum.
