BAHRAIN: Insulation company Armacell has formally begun construction of a new manufacturing facility in Bahrain with a groundbreaking at the Bahrain International Investment Park (BIIP).

Due to start production in 2018, the factory will manufacture a comprehensive range of products, including high-density materials and elastomeric insulation for heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
