"We maximised our production and therefore our efficiency because of Buildnow"

Nipras Metal Industry Co.

Nipras Metal Industry for metal works was established in the year 2010. Since then, it is primarily engaged in the manufacturing and supervision of metal and steel construction products. Nipras products reflects its commitment to high standards of quality, safety, consistency, and accurate measures. In this fast-growing manufacturing industry, Nipras has always maintained its standards locally and globally. With the help of highly qualified engineers and skilled fabricators, Nipras has been dedicated to delivering products in metal and steel such as Roof Hatch, Handrails, Steel gratings, steel ladders, raised floor pedestals, and a complete range of cable management systems. Nipras has supplied products on several major projects including:

  • King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) - Riyadh
  • King Saud University - Riyadh
  • King Khalid International Airport - Riyadh


Nipras had recently set up a new factory that was 3X bigger than their current facility. Thus were hungry to capture more sales and reap the returns of their investment. More sales would result in better use of their fixed costs such as management, manpower, and depreciation. However, capturing sales required buying raw materials with cash upfront (as suppliers weren’t giving them credit on the terms they wanted), manufacturing and delivering the products, and then getting paid. Such payment cycles typically take 90 days or more. Their biggest barrier to growth was their limited working capital and long cash cycle. “After investing in our factory, we really needed to ramp up production but working capital had become an issue.” said Mr. Alaa (CEO - Nipras Metal Industry)


During a discussion with one of their suppliers, Bena Steel - a Buildnow partner vendor - Bena recommended exploring Buildnow as a potential solution to their problem. Nipras followed up with a strong reference from Bena Steel and, within 7 days, paid Bena SAR 500,000 upfront via Buildnow to purchase raw materials on a 3-month credit period. This was a win-win solution for both Nipras and their supplier, Bena Steel

The Outcome

The availability of bulk raw materials for the factory was a bottleneck for Nipras, which was immediately solved with the credit provided by Buildnow. As a result, they were able to increase production and capture opportunities they would have missed otherwise, boosting their sales. Thanks to the timely value-add provided by Buildnow, Nipras has remained a loyal client since mid-2022.
