Eversendai is a leading structural engineering company and one of the major steel contractors for steel structures in Middle East and Asian region. The steel monolith is responsible for iconic projects such as the Burj Al Arab Hotel, Emirates Tower, Petronas Twin Towers (Tower 2) and Burj Khalifa. Eversendai has completed over 100 projects across 10 countries and currently has an order book of over RM1.5 billion. 95 percent of its projects are currently based outside of Malaysia. Eversendai plans to increase Malaysian-based projects to 10 percent in the coming 1-3 years.

Eversendai possesses an impressive record of never delaying a single project to date no matter how complex it is, a feat it has maintained for over two decades. Since its humble beginnings, it now has four cutting-edge fabrication factories in Rawang, Selangor; Sharjah, United Arab Emirates; Al Qusasis Industrial Area, Dubai and Doha, Qatar. It is also in the process of establishing another fabrication factory in Chennai, India. These factories have a combined output of over 120,000 tons of fabricated steel per annum.

With a staff strength of over 6000 in offices and projects across Malaysia, Middle East and South East Asia, Eversendai has experienced enormous growth and consequently required a system that could integrate and consolidate its operations. Eversendai consequently looked to Oracle for a customized solution to meet its operational needs.
