SIMEC Shipping is being consolidated with the Group's traditional vessel operations of chartering, operation and ownership. Its operations are soon to include port management, floating platforms and a fleet of river sea vessels.

The company is currently concluding an acquisition of MIR Steel's dedicated port and berth on the River USK estuary in Newport Wales with an intention to develop this port as a hub in Newport for Groups activity and beyond.

With several million tons of cargo shipped and handled between all the five continents an independent logistics vertical is a logical and profitable addition to SIMEC activities

After success completion of plans in Newport SIMEC Shipping will look to implement this model in other locations of the Group.


The Group is seeking to expand operations in manufacturing that are complimentary to its trading activities with several acquisitions in progress across the geographies in which the Group operates.

The Group is poised to complete purchase of a controlling stake in ABG CEMENT LTD ( in Gujarat India, with a state of the art 6 million mt integrated cement plant having captive mines, own port, power plant and its own desalination unit. Further ancillary cement grinding and bagging plants of 1 million mt each are under implementation in Bahrain and Sri Lanka fed by clinker from ABG.


Coal mining is focused to integrate and support the Group's coal trading and power generation. Mines in Australia, India and UK are under assessment for evaluation.


Power generation is a necessary integration, especially in industrial areas that are highly sensitive to power prices. Many of the Group's markets are growing faster than their availability of power and hence the focus on power generation. In Europe there is a growing focus on green energy technologies.

SIMEC has acquired SIMEC Uskmouth Power Ltd ( a 393MW Coal Fired Power generation plant in the South Wales, UK.

The focus is to convert this to a biomass fed plant whilst developing the site to include other renewable generation technologies such as biomass pelletizing and distribution, solar, wind, waste to energy, and tidal amongst others.


The commodity divisions covers the trading of various Industrial Commodities with a focus of developing trade around the assets owned by the Group and areas where the Group wants to develop further.
