Pall Corporation, a global leader in filtration, separation and purification, and Saudi-based Tanajib, a prominent petroleum services company, announced the formation of a joint venture named Pall Arabia to support the oil and gas and petrochemical industries in Saudi Arabia.
They announced this strategic alliance—the culmination of many years of investment—at the International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) 2020 that was held in January this year in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.
Established in line with Saudi Vision 2030, the JV will establish Pall Arabia, based in Dhahran, as Pall’s global centre of excellence for the oil and gas and petrochemical industries.
The partnership between Pall and Tanajib, which is already a distributor of Pall products and services, brings together resources, technologies, experience, expertise and commercial presence to further support growth in Saudi Arabia, says a senior official.
"Saudi Vision 2030 aligns with our strategy," comments Sary Diab, Managing Director, Middle East at Pall. "Our 12-year investment in local assets and resources has made it possible for Pall Arabia to operate locally, and we are well positioned to achieve our strategic goals."
Pall’s presence in Saudi Arabia expanded from sales representation to a significant project management and engineering presence with a large fleet of Pall rental equipment globally. All projects are engineered and built in Saudi Arabia by local suppliers and Pall Arabia’s success will be driven by associates comprised primarily of Saudi nationals.
Tanajib’s Managing Director, Salem Al-Naimi, adds: "This exciting partnership with Pall is the result of the long-term collective effort of our two companies. We welcome Pall’s participation and look forward to a successful joint venture."
Todd Barrett, Vice President and General Manager of Pall Fluid Technologies and Asset Protection, says: "This agreement strengthens Pall’s position and offers an opportunity for growth in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East, while complementing our existing operations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. We look forward to working together with Tanajib to support the region’s growing oil and gas and petrochemical industries."
