Coperion Middle East has opened a new service facility, designed to provide fast and efficient service to local customers in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region, said the company. With over 1,400 m2 floor space available, including an 800 m2 workshop, the new service centre, located in Al Jubail, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, will provide enough space for a well-equipped workshop for services like die plate, extruder barrel and screw elements overhaul, rotary and diverter valves maintenance and spare parts inventory.
The new service centre was inaugurated by Coperion Division President Service, Kevin Buchler on the first day of a recent two-day customer event organised by the company during a well-attended ceremony. Among those present were government officials of the Royal Commission, the Deputy Head of Mission of the German Embassy to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the CEO of Coperion’s parent company Hillenbrand, Inc.
The second day of the event was an Open House, complete with technical presentations on extrusion and compounding, bulk material handling as well as high-precision feeding technology.
The facility opening marked the completion of the new construction and the relocation from the old office to the new one – a move, said Kevin Buchler, that was prompted by customer demand in Saudi Arabia and the entire Gulf region.
“Coperion’s new Al Jubail service facility is another step forward for Coperion and reflects the importance of Coperion Middle East to our business,” he added. “We see it as an investment in the future and a clear commitment to our customers. Coperion Middle East will continue to play an important role in our network."
