01 January, 2016

A leading Saudi glass manufacturer has completed projects worth SR30 million ($7.99 million) across Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

Projects completed by Saudi Arabian Glass (SAG), a subsidiary of Dubai Investments and a leading processor of architectural high-performance flat glass in the Middle East, include Amoudi Tower in Jeddah, Intelligence Department Building in downtown Jeddah, Al Othaim Mall and Zinj Juffair Tower in Bahrain and Waseel Hills Compound in Riyadh.

The company has also completed the supply of gold-coated glass with Islamic screen printed design for the General Audit Bureau HQ in Riyadh, besides providing its K-Lite high performance glass for university projects in Dammam, Najran, Jizan, Madinah, Hail, Tabuk and Qassim.

Over 60,000 sq m of SAG’s K-Lite high performance glass in various colours have been used in these projects. The K-Lite glass offers high-strength resistance against stress and wind flex, and protection in the case of breakage.

SAG also won a contract to provide various types of glass for a KAP 3 Project involving the construction of security buildings across Saudi Arabia for the Ministry of Interior, Movenpick Hotel in Riyadh, AKH Tower in Al Khobar, Dr Faqeeh Hospital in Riyadh and a new compound for Jaddoue Group in Riyadh.

Rizwanullah Khan, executive president of SAG, said: “Saudi American Glass enjoys strategic leadership in the architectural flat glass sector in Saudi Arabia and the impressive project portfolio on hand is a testimony of the company’s growing market domination, thanks to its reputation for quality glass products. The company is associated with iconic developments in Saudi Arabia, which is a key growth market.”

Meanwhile, SAG has also announced an agreement with the UK-based Smartglass International to become its exclusive Middle East partner for privacy switchable and electronically tintable glasses. The technology allows instant privacy at the flick of a switch. Smartglass is currently enhancing environments in more than 33 countries across six continents around the globe.
