Jeddah, January 21, 2012
Bahra Cables, a subsidiary of Saudi's Construction Products Holding Company (CPC), said it has started production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) compound at its new factory in Jeddah.
The Saudi company said its annual output capacity was more than 36,000 tons per year.
Bahra Cables Company sources PVC feedstock for the new factory from Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic) to produce the granules used for jacketing and insulating cables.
“The compound will go to our cable factory in Bahra and more than meet our needs of 12,000 tons of plastic per year,” said Talal Idriss, CEO of Bahra Cables Company.
The factory, built with the expertise of Buss Company of Switzerland, is completely integrated and equipped with the latest technologies in the field, he stated.
“The new factory eliminates the need for local sourcing, ensures the production of superior quality of cables and creates jobs for citizens,” Idriss said.
According to Idriss, the company has so far recruited 30 young Saudis in the new manufacturing plant.-TradeArabia News Service
