Flowserve to build Middle East's largest pump facility
Flowserve Corp has set up a joint venture with Al Rushaid Group, from Dhahran in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to build the largest original equipment manufacture (OEM) pump repair, manufacturing and training facility in the Middle East. The 20,500 m2 complex will be located at the Al Rushaid Oil Field Center in Dhahran , Saudi Arabia and building will start in July 2006. It is expected to be fully operational in October 2007.
The Al Rushaid/Flowserve pump facility will be comprised of two units: a 17,500 m2 pump repair, manufacturing and test facility and a 3,000 m2 hydraulics training centre. Total cost of this joint project will be approximately US$14 million, Flowserve says. It will employ more than 100 people and be fully compliant with Saudisation requirements promulgated by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
"This new complex provides us with a solid foundation to serve and support our customers in the Middle East ,” said Lewis Kling CEO of Flowserve. “We strongly feel this facility will enable customers to more sharply focus on their core production activities while outsourcing pump maintenance.”
