NILES -- Perma-Pipe International Holdings subsidiary Perma-Pipe Middle East FZC has established a new company in Egypt to meet demand for the company's products in that country.
The company, Perma-Pipe Egypt, is in the process of establishing a new production facility in Beni Suef, south of Cairo. The factory is in response to a growing demand for Perma-Pipe's products in Egypt, particularly strong demands for the company's chilled water and containment piping and leak detection systems. The facility is planned to be operational by July, 2019.
We are very proud to be investing in Egypt and playing our part to develop Egypt's infrastructure that is being invested in heavily," said Grant Dewbre, Sr. Vice President for Perma-Pipe's MENA region. "It is our hope that we can better meet the demands of our Egyptian customers by investing in the country, and we look forward to the beginning of a long presence there.
Perma-Pipe has received multiple awards by Egyptian companies related to projects in Egypt's New Capital City and elsewhere, which will be carried out in Perma-Pipe's existing facilities in the UAE and Saudi Arabia and in the new facility in Beni Suef after it is operational, the company said in a release.
