PCT is currently constructing the 23 m composite hilal (crescent moon), which will be placed on the top of the Dokaae Tower in Mecca – the largest clock tower in the world.

PCT was founded in 2006 by a team of three people, including managing director Hannes Waimer, to serve the architectural and marine markets in the Middle East.

Today, the company has grown to over 670 people. It works with a number of European architects, including SL Rasch, Snohetta and Foster + Partners, and has evolved into the building of production race boats, including the FARR 400.

PCT is currently involving in the construction of the Dokaae Tower in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

This the largest clock tower in the world and PCT has supplied the upper 370 m of the 601 m tower, a construction that involves over 60 000 m2 of composite cladding. This includes the four glass fibre epoxy clock faces, two of which measure 43 m in diameter, as well as the 23 m carbon clock hands and the 23 m self-supporting carbon hilal.

More opportunities for composites

“Over the past five years, PCT has seen tremendous growth at an incredibly fast pace," reports managing director Hannes Waimer. "This is just the start. As we move forward, we are looking more closely at business development, R&D, new technology and new machinery that will help us to ramp up production more efficiently."

"As the benefits of working with composite materials become understood, more and more opportunities are presenting themselves. This is a very exciting time.”
