Jeddah, Saudi Arabia - Juffali Chemical Products Co. has opened its new Arabian Chemical Polyurethane Systems House, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The systems house will produce Dow PU systems for various applications and will contribute to Dow Formulated System's global network of more than 30 system houses around the world.
The 28 March inauguration ceremony was officiated by Dr Souhail El Farouki, general manager of Juffali Chemical Group.
"We have been partnering with Dow in a variety of businesses since 1976, and this important alliance allows us to further strengthen our relationship, increasing our ability to sustain the dynamic growth of our customers in this region," El Farouki said in a 11 April news release.
Dow Formulated Systems, part of the Dow Chemical Co., and Saudi Arabian industrial conglomerate EA Juffali & Brothers signed the alliance for the Arabian Chemical Polyurethane Systems House in 2010. The two companies have three long-standing joint ventures, the earliest dating back to 1976.
Dr Zuhair Allawi, vice president of Dow Saudi Arabia Co., said that the project marks an important milestone for Dow in Saudi Arabia and "emphasises Dow's commitment to this geographic area and this market where the value of innovation and technology are recognised."
