SAUDI ARABIA: Emerson Climate Technologies has opened a new condensing unit assembly facility in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

Coinciding with the launch of Emerson Climate Technologies Arabia LLC, the new 3,000m² facility is fully equipped to produce and assemble various refrigeration condensing units specifically for the Saudi Arabian market. The new facility will also be capable of accommodating other product lines and services.

“The Middle East & Africa is a key geographical region for Emerson Climate Technologies and a regional focus is an important part of our strategy,” said Robert T Sharp, Emerson Climate’s  executive vice president.

Emerson-DammamSince 2003, when Emerson Climate Technologies started assembling condensing units in Dubai, UAE, customer demand has continually been on the rise. To sustain growth, particularly in Saudi Arabia, Emerson has decided to expand its production and invest in a second, new, state-of-the-art facility in the Kingdom.

“Emerson Climate Technologies is committed to improving customer service in the region.  Having a local presence, fostering shorter lead times to customers, and improving customer service levels will truly help deliver the most value for our customers in the Kingdom,” said K.
