Zeeco Middle East announced today that it has acquired an additional 5,000 m2 of industrial land to implement the third expansion of its fabrication and storage facilities and an additional two-story administrative and engineering office building in preparation for an expanding workforce of Saudi nationals. The additional 5,000m2 fabrication area expands upon Zeeco’s existing operations and footprint in Dammam, bringing its total industrial area to 17,500 m2 and continuing its dedication to Saudi Aramco’s In Kingdom Total Value Add (IKTVA) program.
Mohammed Abugharbieh, Zeeco’s Country Manager in Saudi Arabia, said, “Built within our site expansion, the additional fabrication facility will grow our engineering and manufacturing capabilities, enhancing our annual production above 250,000 man-hours and increasing our output of advanced combustion and environmental equipment. Here, we will fabricate burners, flares, flare gas recovery systems, vapor recovery systems, thermal oxidizers, reaction furnaces, and other equipment while increasing the local content and hiring more Saudis.”
Zeeco currently employs over 145 people at its Saudi facility and the expansion is part of its commitment to providing more quality jobs for a growing Saudi workforce.
Darton Zink, Zeeco’s President and CEO, said, “We are proud to partner with Saudi Aramco as we work to grow our in-kingdom business, footprint, and value. This expansion will bring business to our in-kingdom vendors who supply equipment and resources to Zeeco and will be crucial to helping us increase our employment and training of Saudi nationals.”
