Its technical and professional design teams in Dammam, Riyadh and Jeddah work closely with consultants, contractors and clients to provide the most techno-commercially viable solutions acceptable to clients.
As part of its growth plans, the company is working to add its fourth geotextile manufacturing line by the end of 2015, which is expected to increase its nonwovens capacity to more than 20,000 tonnes per year (tpy). It is also adding a fiber production plant for its captive consumption.
