Specialist construction products group Macalloy has clinched a £600,000 order from contractors building a new international terminal at Noi Bai airport in the Vietnamese capital Hanoi.

The Dinnington-based firm played host to visitors from the Airports Corporation of Vietnam after securing the order to supply high-strength steel tension bars from the steelwork contractor working on the project.

The Airports Corporation is responsible for overseeing construction of the airport and representatives travelled to Dinnington to see Macalloy’s production facilities and quality control processes, discuss delivery schedules and agree quality documentation.

Macalloy will dispatch the tension bars during the next two to three months so that they can be used to provide structural bracing throughout the new terminal building.

Managing director Peter Hoy said: “Countries in the developing world, such as Vietnam, continue to show exceptional GDP growth and to invest in necessary infrastructure, providing opportunities in the construction sector.

“These markets play a vital role in Macalloys future growth plans and we were delighted to welcome and work with the Airports Corporation of Vietnam on this prestigious project.”

Macalloy is a world leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of threaded bar and cable systems, used by construction companies building major structures like airports, stadia, ports, convention centres and major bridges.

Its tension bars provide high- strength, lightweight architectural solutions for major construction projects and can be found in landmark structures around the world.

Work on the new terminal is expected to be completed during 2014.
