Endress-Hauser closer to the customers in Saudi Arabia

Young Saudi engineers and university graduates will be able to use the company’s new calibration and training centre to acquire technical know-how in accordance with the latest international standards


Endress+Hauser has invested roughly 3 million euros ($3.51 million) in a modern, state-of-the-art calibration and training centre in the industrial city of Jubail, Saudi Arabia, thus strengthening direct contact with customers in the Middle East while supporting the country’s economic development.

Saudi Arabia wants to expand its private business sector and become less reliant on oil production, two key goals of the Vision 2030 programme. 'It was this vision that inspired us to create the new calibration and training centre,' says Mohammed Abdellah, managing director of Endress+Hauser Saudi-Arabia.

'With this new centre, Endress+Hauser is supporting the country to achieve these reforms,' he adds. The 2,700-sq m facility is sponsored by the Royal Commission.


MEETING ALL TRAINING NEEDS

The training centre features a classroom with interactive technology, an extensively-equipped workshop and a field bus training lab.

It offers practical, hands-on training programmes designed to impart knowledge on measurement technologies and process control systems that are in demand by the hydrocarbon, power and water and wastewater industry.

Young Saudi engineers and university graduates will be able to use the new facility to acquire technical know-how in accordance with the latest international standards. Local technical resources can enhance their knowledge and stay competitive with the customised trainings offered in the centre.


ONE OF A KIND CALIBRATION SERVICES

The new building houses a modern calibration centre designed to stringent quality standards. It is the only vendor managed gravimetric calibration facility in the region.

This facility has the capacity and capability to serve the entire GCC region. 'For us, it’s important to be able to address our customer’s needs in a flexible manner and to ensure that they are optimally managed,' says Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group.

In line with this sentiment, Endress+Hauser also offers reliable on-site calibration to save time, cost and effort for our customers.

STRONG PRESENCE IN THE MIDDLE EAST

The new calibration and training centre is part of the group’s strategy. Globally active, Endress+Hauser is continuously expanding its international footprint. For almost two decades Endress+Hauser was represented in Saudi Arabia by a local representative, Anasia Industrial Agencies.

To optimise customer support in the region, Endress+Hauser entered into a joint venture with Anasia in 2012, enabling the group to be directly present and close to the customers in the region.

Endress+Hauser Saudi Arabia currently has 50 employees. The goal of the new investment is to strengthen the Group’s presence in the important Saudi Arabian market, as well as across the entire Middle East.
