Piping and leak detection systems provider Perma-Pipe International has announced that its subsidiary Perma-Pipe Middle East has established Perma-Pipe Egypt, with plans to set up a new production facility in Beni Suef, near Cairo.
The Egyptian subsidiary has been set up in response to increased demand for Perma-Pipe’s products in Egypt, in particular its chilled water and containment piping and leak detection systems.
According to the company, the facility is due to be operational by July 2019.
Perma-Pipe also announced that it has received multiple contract awards from Egyptian companies related to projects in Egypt’s New Capital City and elsewhere. These projects will be carried out at Perma-Pipe’s existing facilities in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, and later in the new facility near Cairo.
“We are very excited about this long-planned geographical expansion into Egypt,” commented Grant Dewbre, senior vice-president for Perma-Pipe’s MENA region. “Our relationships with Egyptian construction companies, consulting engineering companies, and other stakeholders have allowed us to bring our products and services to our customers in Egypt.
“We are very proud to be investing in Egypt and playing our part to develop Egypt’s infrastructure that is being invested in heavily. It is our hope that we can better meet the demands of our Egyptian customers by investing in the country, and we look forward to the beginning of a long presence there.”
“Perma-Pipe is always looking for opportunities to expand to meet the needs of our customers,” added president and CEO David Mansfield. “This expansion has long been a priority for us since it will enable us to offer our full range of capabilities to the Egyptian market. We look forward to serving our Egyptian customers with greater speed and flexibility through our local presence. We are committed to the success of the new facility in Egypt and to being part of the growth already being experienced there.”
