New Jubail facility delivers an expanded manufacturing portfolio, strengthening Emerson’s local presence in Middle East & Africa region
Emerson (NYSE: EMR) launched its newest manufacturing facility in Jubail, further diversifying its local manufacturing portfolio in Saudi Arabia. The facility produces solenoid valves, filter regulators and control cabinets and will enable faster, more efficient service to customers in the Kingdom and nearby countries across the Middle East and Africa region.
The facility was opened with an inauguration event presided over by Emerson senior executives. Invited customers and other stakeholders were able to tour the facility and gain further understanding of Emerson’s regional manufacturing capabilities and technology offerings.
’This new facility in Jubail is the product of Emerson’s commitment to bring our businesses closer to our customers,” said Liam Hurley, vice president and general manager of Emerson in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. “We continually align our capabilities to the needs of our customers. In this region, it has meant migrating some of our capabilities from Dubai to Saudi Arabia to improve efficiency not just in production, but also in logistics and delivery costs to provide better service and value to our customers and partners.”
Emerson’s latest investment in Jubail also highlights the company’s support and alignment with regional localization initiatives such as the IKTVA program and Saudi Vision 2030.
“Our investments in Saudi Arabia have been established not just to serve our customers better but to also support the region’s localization programs. We place high importance on increasing business opportunities in the communities we operate in, as well as in developing local talent as we enable diversity throughout our organization,” said Sergio Caligara, vice president of Emerson’s discrete and industrial business in Middle East & Africa.
The Jubail facility marks another expansion in Emerson’s manufacturing capabilities in the western Middle East region, with existing facilities and plants in Dammam, Al Khobar and Dhahran Techno Valley.
