Insulated pipe plant will be built in Saudi Arabia

The board of directors of MFRI Inc. (Niles, IL) has given the go-ahead to its Perma-Pipe unit for a new insulated pipe factory to be built in Damman, Saudi Arabia. Development and operation will be handled by the company's Perma-Pipe Middle East subsidiary, which already has a pipe plant in the United Arab Emirates.

The new facility will serve the local oil and gas industries and a growing market for cooling networks in Saudi Arabia. It is located close to Qatar, Kuwait, and Bahrain, and is within 20 miles of Aramco. Technology includes Perma-Pipe's spray PUR insulation and a number of jacketing systems such as PE, metal, and FRP.

Along with its lines of pipe products, the Damman facility will also supply custom pipe spools and a broad range of pre-insulated fittings. MFRI is also the parent company of Thermal Care, also based in Niles, IL, which supplies chiller and circulation systems to plastics processing companies. [email protected]
