KG)Following the 2017 cooperation contract between industrial valves specialist AS-Schneider and the Saudi Arabian production and distribution company Binzagr, the production of valves and valve blocks has now been officially underway on-site

The joint venture is a crucial step for the manufacturer based in the southern Germany town of Nordheim near Heilbronn to tap into Saudi Arabia as a new market. Through this cooperation, local customers can now access the AS-Schneider high-quality products and competent service even faster and more extensively.

The Binzagr Factory is an internationally operating production and distribution company, founded originally as a trade partner of the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco). Today, Binzagr is the nation's leading provider of technical insulation for industrial plants and operates in collaboration with various companies including several from Germany.

Together with local experts, AS-Schneider now locally manufactures industrial valves, specifically for use in the oil and gas industry.

With the start of production in July, the collaboration between the two companies has now taken shape, said Umar Mukthar, who oversees the project for AS-Schneider. “For this, we use the same tailor-made machines as in Germany. So customers do not have to worry about compromising product quality,” Mukthar added.

Through the cooperation with Binzagr, AS-Schneider can now serve customers in Saudi Arabia even faster and more extensively. “We produce high-quality solutions on-site which even exceed the required standards,” described Rolf Kummer, managing director at AS-Schneider.

Cooperation with a local partner also ensures short delivery times as well as flexible and competent technical support. “If needed, our experts and any spare parts can be made available to the customer in the shortest time,” Kummer emphasised.
