EagleBurgmann Saudi Arabia is expanding

October 2018

EagleBurgmann Saudi Arabia (EBKSA), a market leader with over 130 years of global experience in supplying various products like mechanical seals, seal supply system, packings, gaskets, magnetic couplings, carbon floating rings, expansion joints and special seals, said its expectations are high as there are many projects lined up for the coming years, especially as its product range offers solutions to a number of industry sectors, such as oil and gas, chemicals, water, power, food and pharmaceuticals.

Besides, the company, which is a joint venture between EagleBurgmann (Germany) and Gas Arabian Services, is expanding its capability in the kingdom.

“The expansion will include new offices and enhanced manufacturing capabilities, as well as more sales and service operations, all of which will enhance our support to all our clients in country,” said Biju Chacko, senior sales director of the company.

A major challenge to the EBKSA’s growth plans is the in-kingdom drive by the Saudi Arabia government to nationalise the workforce (Nitaqat), which involves companies meeting stringent and compulsory targets in employing Saudi nationals. EBKSA has embraced this and has actively recruited and trained Saudi nationals, utilising them in every area of the business and has been recognised by the Saudi government for the company’s commitment to the Nitaqat programme. 

Also, EagleBurgmann Saudi Arabia’s growth and opportunities plan are firmly focused on aligning the business with the kingdom’s Vision 2030 programme and IKTVA initiative by Saudi Aramco. “We see huge prospects ahead to grow our business in the country,” says Chacko.

“The Vision 2030 plan helps reduce Saudi Arabia’s dependence on oil revenues. As many projects are being announced as part of this initiative, EagleBurgmann Saudi Arabia is in a comfortable position to support those projects and be a part of kingdom success,” he said.
