Janssens ... boosting in-house expertise

Krohne Group, a global manufacturer of process instrumentation, measurement solutions and services, has announced an expansion of its Saudi Arabia operations.

Recent new hires have been made to bolster the high standards of service and expertise the 100-year-old company’s discerning client base expect whilst continuing to deliver best-in-class measurement solutions across industries.

In light of ongoing updates to Saudi Arabian employment laws in the roadmap towards achieving Vision 2030, the engineering field currently aims for 20 per cent Saudi employment.

Krohne claims 50 per cent of its workforce in the Kingdom are now Saudis with a view to hire more local talent as the need arises.

According to Frank Janssens, Vice-President, Krohne Middle East and Africa: "KROHNE is always looking to enhance customer service and solution delivery as our competitive advantage, as it complements our superior quality cross-industry portfolio. We have been fortunate in a potentially difficult economic environment and are able to boost our in-house expertise in key locations."

He adds: "Why bring in talent from outside when the Kingdom is teeming with highly qualified engineers who can provide a local relevance to our international safety standards and protocols? Investing in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was not a difficult business decision and demonstrates our commitment to this very important market."
