- Business Administration – The American University of Beirut (AUB) in 1978
- Chartered Accountancy in London, UK
After graduation, Sami underwent his Chartered Accountancy training in London (UK) while working for the international audit firm of Arthur Andersen. Following that he joined the internal audit department of the UK-based Abela Group of companies, where he had remained until he started his expertise in trade finance & forfeiting.
Early in 1994, Sami visited Vietnam to explore business opportunities. At that time, only a few investors were able to hear the stirring of a sleeping tiger that was soon to leap up onto the world stage and become a strong industrial force to be reckoned with. Sami recognized the chance and he never wasted a single second to embrace it.
This is how PEB Steel was born in Vietnam in 1994, then continuously expanded to the neighboring countries: Thailand, India, Myanmar, Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Today, PEB Steel is a reliable major player in pre-engineered buildings with a strong commitment to long-term quality and excellent service.
Sami has also dedicated his expertise as the President of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Viet from 2008 to 2011.

- Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.), major Mechanical, from the American University of Beirut (AUB) in 1983.
- EMBA program from UQAM University (The Université du Québec à Montréal) in 2017.
Adib started his career in CCC in 1983, the largest construction & engineering firm in the Middle East. He worked as a site and workshop engineer in Kuwait and Yemen in 2 refineries projects.
In 1988, Adib joined Kirby Building Systems as a representative office manager in Qatar. The job involved sales and customer service of pre-engineered steel buildings.
After that, Adib joined Zamil Steel as a representative office manager in Qatar, Malaysia and Vietnam from 1990. He had successfully established the Zamil Steel brand name for the pre-engineered buildings industry in South East Asia.
From late 1994, Adib and Sami became the founders of the PEB Group, where Adib remains a key role in making the company successful as it is today, boasting the total sales of over 6,000 pre-engineered steel buildings in many countries. Adib always trusts in these principles while working with the others:

PEB’s first factory is designed in “I” shape to maximize the unobstructed internal flow of production. It is equipped with fully automated submerged arc welding lines from Lincoln (USA).
The building shows excellence and innovation in every piece of engineering. It is 17 meters high with a slope of 4:10 and is supported by PEB Steel’s castellated beams and open-web-joists system.
The roof is done with our special LokSeam® profile which is the optimum choice to prevent water leak.
This factory is equipped to produce mix pre-engineered buildings structures as well as heavy structures including hot-rolled members for the power plant, oil & gas facilities, multi-story / high-rise buildings, and other special steel structures.
The 4th factory boosts the productivity of PEB Steel in Vietnam, increasing the total capacity in the region to more than 120,000 MT / year. It is specialized in the unique design with large bay spacing up to 15 meters without supporting jack beams.
PEB Steel uses the huge size Z300 purlins which are made of Silver180® coated steel (AZ180 Gr/M2). This material is extremely suitable for intensive corrosion resistance.
The first factory to use our special rigid PebHybrid™ frame (galvanized cold-form coil), which can shorten the fabrication duration and contribute a longer life cycle for the construction. The special PebINSUL™ (insulation material) and great ridge ventilation system help make the indoor cooler and more comfortable. PebWall™ and PebLiner™ were chosen for cladding to enhance the aesthetic of the entire factory.
The 6th factory is invested more in advanced machinery systems to produce heavy steel structures for complex constructions. PEB Steel applies the latest technical innovation in the pre-engineered buildings industry on the ridge ventilation system, as well as using high-performance PebFoam™ in thermal insulation, and PebHybrid™ for rigid frames and mezzanine joists.
Located in the Thilawa Special Economic Zone, the factory of PEB Steel in Myanmar commits the total fabrication capacity up to 30,000 MT / year. This 30,000 square-meter large factory along with its state-of-the-art machinery systems can handle heavy steel structures to quickly meet the most difficult requirements of complex constructions.
The new factory is built up with PEB Steel’s latest products and technology: PebHybrid™ for rigid frames and mezzanine joists, modern ridge ventilation and insulation systems, and eco-friendly paint which achieve LEED® certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
