​The factory is intended to meet the increasing demand for paint in the fast growing Western Region of Saudi Arabia.

​February 13, 2014 the company Hempel inaugurated its largest decorative paints factory in the Middle East. The Western Region of Saudi Arabia experiences strong growth in infrastructure, housing and industrial developments. In order to capitalize on this growth, Hempel Paints found a strong business case for developing and building a factory in this region.

- The factory utilizes the latest technologies used globally to produce paints. This includes powder silos, automatic filling, automatic palletizing and automatic transfer of pallets to the finished goods warehouse. The factory is equipped with the latest machinery and highly skilled, trained and qualified labor force consisting of over 70 employees, Mr Jullien Hempel Group President and CEO says.

COWI, who acted as lead consultant, was responsible for the project from inception to completion, carrying out concept design and detailed design for all architectural, structural and MEP works, 3D modelling of the production facility, as well as authority approvals, construction supervision and coordination of the industrial fit-out.
