Petra expands to target Europe
SAUDI ARABIA: Petra Engineering, Jordan’s leading HVACR manufacturer, is expanding its manufacturing plant in Saudi Arabia to target new markets including Europe and America.
The 15,000m2 expansion of the plant in King Abdullah Economic City’s Industrial Valley, is the second phase of plans commenced in 2014 and brings Petra’s total footprint to more than 40,000m2.
Petra Engineering Industries already sends shipments from KAEC to Africa and was the first company to export products manufactured in the city.
Petra commenced operations in KAEC Industrial Valley in 2013 with a 25,000m2 plot. Within a year of launch the company began to expand operations and leased an additional 15,000m2 plot to expand its manufacturing facility.
The company’s operations at KAEC include production processes, assembly lines, storage tanks, administrative buildings and advanced research and development labs. Petra’s plant specialises in designing and producing high quality air conditioning equipment to meet commercial, industrial and residential needs. The plant also produces standard cooling units, water cooling units, central and independent air conditioning units and central control units for computer rooms.
“The Industrial Valley’s immediate proximity to King Abdullah Port facilitates the export of Petra’s products and increases our access to the European and North American markets,” said Eng Samer Hamid, general director of Petra Engineering Industries’ Saudi plant.
