Murex Welding Products has signed a distributorship agreement for Saudi Arabia with Pan Gulf Welding Solutions (PGWS). This a major step forward for the Murex brand, which now has market coverage throughout the Middle East.
Part of Pan Gulf Holdings, with diverse industrial interests in Saudi Arabia and surrounding GCC countries, PGWS was established in 2005. The company has offices throughout the kingdom in Dammam, Jubail, Jeddah, Riyadh and Yanbu and already distributes major welding brands including products manufactured by ESAB, a sister company of Murex. In taking on the distribution of Murex Saffire gas welding range, PGWS is complementing its existing portfolio with another renowned and established brand.
Initially PGWS is ordering Murex Saffire SupAcet gas welding and cutting outfits to the value of over EUR100,000. All the products have been manufactured and adapted to meet the exact specifications of the Saudi Arabian market. SupAcet is a comprehensive package that includes welding and cutting tools and nozzles, regulator, hose, goggles and all the ancillary products required by those replacing obsolete equipment or setting up for the first time. Suitable for new projects, of which there are many throughout the Middle East, the outfits will appeal to all sectors of Saudi Arabian industry, from local garages through to the steel fabrication, shipbuilding, oil and gas, refrigeration and many other sectors.
As part of the launch, PGWS exhibited the Murex range for the first time at the Gulf International Industry Fair in Bahrain in January 2009.
Howard Fieldhouse, Export Manager for the ESAB Group, comments: "This is an extremely exciting development for the Murex brand. The association with PGWS will open up the Saudi Arabian market-place not just for SupAcet products, but for the entire Murex gas welding range."
