Emerson expands regional manufacturing with new facility in Saudi ArabiaJun 24, 2022 by Energy Connects
American multinational Emerson has inaugurated an expanded facility in Dammam, Saudi Arabia to manufacture its Rosemount pressure and temperature transmitters and manifolds, the company said on Friday.
The new instrumentation facility is designed to offer expanded production capacity of transmitters to support future demand from Emerson key customers in the Kingdom, the company said in a statement. The investment follows Emerson’s recently launched Fluid & Motion Control manufacturing facility in Jubail and adds to its five other manufacturing sites across the Kingdom that manufacture valves, electrical products, pneumatic components, and control systems, it said.
The facility further burnishes Emerson’s longstanding collaborative relationship with Saudi Aramco and SABIC to support localisation initiatives such as Saudi Vision 2030 and local content programs like In-Kingdom Total Value Add (IKTVA) and Nusaned.
“We are bringing our businesses closer to our customers and aligning our capabilities according to the needs of our customers. This facility will improve efficiency not just in production, but also in logistics and delivery costs, providing better value to our customers and partners,” Liam Hurley, vice president and general manager of Emerson’s Western Region in Middle East and Africa, said in a statement.
Khalil Ramul, Senior Manager for procurement of SABIC for the instrumentation category, said the facility would help Emerson and SABIC be the soldiers of technology and leaders of excellence.
“Emerson is thrilled with this expansion not only because we are able to strengthen our manufacturing capabilities to our key customers in the area, but also because of the opportunity to support local communities by providing continuous business opportunities and the development of local talent,” Mounir Taleb, Emerson’s vice president for measurement solutions in the Middle East and Africa, said in a statement.
