The new facility, located at the Second Industrial Zone of the Saudi Industrial Property Authority “MODON” in Dammam, is approximately 3,000m2 and is fully equipped to produce and assemble various refrigeration condensing units specifically for the Saudi Arabian market. Additional product lines and services beyond condensing units can be accommodated within the new manufacturing facility.
Robert (Bob) T. Sharp, Executive Vice President, Emerson Business Leader, Emerson Climate Technologies, inaugurated the new facility with a ribbon cutting ceremony in Dammam.
“The Middle East & Africa is a key geographical region for Emerson Climate Technologies” said Sharp. “And a regional focus is an important part of our strategy. This is our second manufacturing facility in the region, and we are confident it will help deliver value for our customers in KSA.”
Since 2003, when Emerson Climate Technologies started assembling condensing units in Dubai, UAE, customer demand has continually been on the rise. To sustain growth, particularly in Saudi Arabia, Emerson has decided to expand its production and invest in a new, state-of-the-art facility in the Kingdom.
“Emerson Climate Technologies is committed to improving customer service in the region. Having a local presence, fostering shorter lead times to customers, and improving customer service levels will truly help deliver the most value for our customers in the Kingdom,” said K. Jayakumar, vice president, general manager Saudi Arabia.
