Coperion Middle East Opens New Service Center
Increasing Demand for Fast Overhaul and Maintenance
Coperion Middle East Co., Ltd., Al Jubail, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, opened a new facility in the Jubail 2 district with a two day customer event in early February 2018. This new facility, with a footprint of over 1400 m2 including a over 800 m2 workshop, Coperion Middle East will be able to provide even faster services around its customers’ extrusion and compounding plants.
The facility opening marked the completion of the new construction and the relocation from the old office to the new one. The new facility will provide enough space for a well-equipped workshop for services like die plate, extruder barrel and screw elements overhaul, rotary and diverter valves maintenance and spare parts inventory. With a footprint of more than 1400 m2 the new service site will continue to focus on providing service for extrusion and compounding lines, bulk material handling equipment and feeders for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as well as the entire GCC area. With a workshop of over 800 m2 , equipped with high-end machinery and a large spare parts inventory, Coperion Middle East is meeting the increasing demand for fast overhaul and maintenance of process-critical parts for local and regional customers.
"Coperion’s new Al Jubail service facility is another step forward for Coperion and reflects the importance of Coperion Middle East to our business,” said Coperion Division President Service Kevin Buchler during his opening speech. “We see it as an investment in the future and a clear commitment to our customers. Coperion Middle East will continue to play an important role in our network. He also mentioned Coperion’s 30-year history in the Kingdom and talked about how Coperion Middle East has grown from just a few employees since the establishment of the joint-venture in 2011 to more than 20 employees today.
