IMI Saudi opens new manufacturing facility in Dammam

IMI Saudi Industry, a subsidiary of IMI Critical Engineering, has unveiled a new 5,000m2 facility in Dammam to supply valve solutions and bolster national manufacturing capabilities in line with Saudi government localisation plans for key products.

The factory will provide accessibility to valve and actuating systems in line with the Saudi Vision 2030 strategic framework to enhance efficiencies across the region’s oil and gas, power, and petrochemical industries.

All valves manufactured are in line with the IKTVA (In Kingdom Total Value Add) program, which urges suppliers to achieve 70% localisation, stimulating regional growth and invigorating firms throughout its supply chain. Moreover, the facility’s use of electrical equipment to assemble key products and provide valve repairs and upgrades ensures its manufacturing processes produce minimal carbon emissions.

IMI Critical Engineering’s Divisional Managing Director Jackie Hu said the opening of this new factory demonstrates the company’s commitment to Saudi Arabia and ensures that Saudi customers can access valve assembly, testing, and other vital support services locally.
