“To excel my career in the field of “Rolling” by accepting challenges and hard work in a fast paced competitive environment. Looking for an opportunity to explore engineering skill and implement them”.
“I have expertise in Bar rolling and Coil Rolling.”
After spending almost a decade in Steel rolling industry, I still claim myself to be a student; I am still learning and will continue to do so as long as I am working. I have experience in mill operation, installation and commissioning, Coil rolling & Thermo-processing. Since I have a metallurgical background, the metallurgical aspects of rolling have always been a great attraction for me.
I have been privileged to work with companies who are the pioneers of some of the rolling technologies in Pakistan and in Saudi Arabia.
