Company’s second Middle Eastern addresses growing demand for advanced fluid management solutions
Pall Corp., a global leader in filtration, separation and purification, inaugurated a new office in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Located in Al Khobar, the office is Pall’s second in the Middle East. Pall opened its regional headquarters in Dubai (UAE) in October of 2010. The company has operated in the region since 2003.
“The needs of our customers in the Middle East continue to evolve and demand for our advanced fluid management solutions continues to grow,” said Larry Kingsley, Pall president and CEO. “The addition of our new Saudi Arabia office reinforces Pall’s commitment to the region as well as to our customers in the area.”
At the Al Khobar site, Pall will have a customer support team as well as an engineering facility dedicated to serving local customers and multinational companies that partner with Pall in the region. Pall provides filtration, separation and purification solutions that address both process management and environmental requirements. The company’s products are used in an array of demanding applications, from oil and gas, petrochemicals and power generation to pharmaceuticals and water treatment.
“Pall’s growing local presence strengthens our capabilities to deliver highly engineered process solutions, applications expertise and local technical support to a broader range of companies in the Middle East region,” said Hussein Barazi, managing director, Pall Middle East & Africa.
The company also is dedicated to driving advances in markets of critical importance to communities and business in the Middle East. Pall’s recent collaboration with the Saudi Arabia-based King Abdullah University of Science and Technology is an example of that commitment. Pall will participate in research relating to filtration, separations and purification technologies in areas such as water treatment and alternative fuels.
