The Pearl facility in Jeddah
Pearl Polyurethane (PU) Systems, the award-winning PU system house, has announced the commissioning of a major new production facility in Jeddah. This further reinforces the company’s industry-leading position as the largest supplier of polyurethane formulations in the Middle East and Africa region.
With this new facility, Pearl is accelerating the implementation of its PearlX2 growth plan set to double the company’s size over the coming five-year period.
Creating new job opportunities in Jeddah, the dedicated plant and office will accommodate the company’s growing team while further expanding its presence in the kingdom.
“Our roots in Saudi Arabia run deep. Pearl has been servicing clients in the kingdom for decades and we are excited about this new production facility providing our Saudi-based clients with the very best delivery options possible and industry-leading innovation, while ensuring supply chain resilience.
“The facility, coupled with investment and growth in our other offices and facilities across the Mena region, will enable Pearl to maintain world-class service delivery standards and respond to evolving customer demands across several product areas,” said Martin Kruczinna, CEO of Pearl Polyurethane Systems.
“We will offer our Saudi clients the benefit of dedicated production and warehousing facilities in the kingdom as well as the type of personalised, customer-centric service that our international clients have become accustomed to over the past 35 years.
“This investment represents another tremendous show of confidence in the growing strength and significance of the Saudi Arabian economy and our company’s close alignment with Vision 2030 goals. Focusing on building and infrastructure insulation solutions, as well as consumer goods such as appliances and footwear together with a range of other products, our new production facility ensures that we continue to offer best-in-class PU solutions to our current and new Saudi-based clients, supporting further manufacturing sector growth in the kingdom,” said Kruczinna.
Jeddah was chosen as the site for the new Pearl production plant due to its proximity to the city’s major international port, access to top talent, and excellent transport connections across the kingdom.
The new facility will contribute to strengthening Saudi Arabia’s position as a growing manufacturing hub, with Pearl’s new plant producing polyurethane formulations and high-performance polyurethane foams widely used in building insulation products, manufacturing processes, and a range of other everyday applications.
Furthermore, the new production facility will leverage Jeddah’s strong position as an export hub catering to further demand from across the wider region.
Through its clients, Pearl has been working on multiple projects in Saudi Arabia over the recent years in various fields, including infrastructure, retail, hospitality, architecture, and the built environment.
Considering the superior insulation capabilities of rigid polyurethane foams, Pearl’s local production plant in Jeddah will strongly support the objectives of becoming CO2-neutral by 2060.
Operating since 1989, the company has supplied polyurethane insulation foam systems for several trailblazing projects in the Gulf region, including Palm Jumeirah, Downtown Dubai, Ski Dubai, and, more recently, the Germany Pavilion at Dubai Expo 2020 Bustanica, the world’s largest vertical farm for Emirates Airlines flight catering in Dubai, and Noon’s fulfilment centre in Saudi Arabia.-- TradeArabia News Service
