History

Kirby was established as a joint venture between Alghanim and Kirby Building Systems Inc. (Nucor), USA in 1976 with a production plant in Kuwait. In 1981 it built the largest textile complex in the world in Alam, Egypt. In 1996 it received ISO 9001:2000 quality certification. In 2000, the plant in Hyderabad was opened; one year later Kirby India received ISO 9001:2000 certification. In 2006 a plant in Haridwar was inaugurated with a capacity of 60,0000 MT.[3] The plant had an investment of Rs 50 crore (500 million Rupees).[4] A year later another plant was inaugurated in Ras Al Khaimah and construction started on a plant in Vietnam.[3] In 2009 the company reintroduced curved steel structures, an alternative style to other PEB buildings.[3][5]
