Emerson expands manufacturing base in Saudi Arabia with new facility

New facility highlights the company’s support and alignment with regional localisation initiatives such as the IKTVA program and Saudi Vision 2030

Technology and engineering firm Emerson has launched its newest manufacturing facility in Jubail. The facility marks another expansion in the firm’s manufacturing capabilities in the western Middle East , with existing facilities and plants in Dammam, Al Khobar and Dhahran Techno Valley, the firm explained.

The plant will produce solenoid valves, filter regulators and control cabinets and is aimed at enabling faster, more efficient service to customers in the Kingdom and nearby countries across the Middle East and Africa region.

“This new facility in Jubail is the product of Emerson’s commitment to bring our businesses closer to our customers. We continually align our capabilities to the needs of our customers. In this region, it has meant migrating some of our capabilities from Dubai to Saudi Arabia to improve efficiency not just in production, but also in logistics and delivery costs to provide better service and value to our customers and partners,” said Liam Hurley, VP and general manager of Emerson in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

Emerson’s latest investment in Jubail also highlights the company’s support and alignment with regional localisation initiatives such as the IKTVA program and Saudi Vision 2030.

“Our investments in Saudi Arabia are not only aimed at serving our customers better but also to back the region’s localisation programmes. We place high importance on increasing business opportunities in the communities we operate in, as well as in developing local talent as we enable diversity throughout our organization,” remarked Sergio Caligara, VP of Emerson’s discrete and industrial business in the Middle East and Africa.
