New office opened in Saudi Arabia
Norwegian paints and coatings supplier Jotun has opened a new sales, marketing and administration office in Bilda Mall, Riyadh, to strengthen the company’s local operations.
The Norwegian supplier’s new facility was inaugurated by His Excellency Carl Schiotz Wibye, at an event attended by Jotun Group senior officials and other guests, last month.
“The opening of our new Jotun offices in Saudi Arabia shows the continued business growth that we are enjoying in the country and also marks our commitment to better serve our growing customer base,” said Kjell Gundersen, managing director, Jotun Saudia Co. Ltd, speaking at the opening.
Jotun Saudi has been present in the country for more than 20 years with two factories located at the major sea port Yanbu and neighbouring Jeddah. The new offices are strategically located to provide access to the warehouse and customer service department facilities, which will remain in Riyadh. It will also provide a base for Jotun’s protective marine and powder functions.
The office features a fully computerised set-up, equipped with communication software which facilitates a “constant, seemless connection” with the rest of Jotun’s global network.
Jotun said the opening reflects their “continuing business growth” and complements initiatives aimed at providing better service.
“Jotun Saudi remains steadfast in its commitment to implementing key initiatives in customer servicing, quality of products, HR and IT resources,” Gundersen added.
