Saudi Vitrified Clay Pipe Company (SVCP) recently completed an expansion project that boosted production capacity by 15,000 tonnes to 185,000 tonnes.
SVCP saw a drop in annual sales in 2009 from SR257 million ($68.5 million) to SR225 million, which Abu Jabara attributed to a drop in projects in the aftermath of the global economic and financial crisis.
"As for the first half of this year, SVCP achieved its budgeted sales and recorded an increase of 17 per cent over 2009 sales for the same period allowing the company to continue the rest of the year with confidence to score all its goals for 2010," said Abu Jabara.
Saudi Vitrified Clay Pipe Company's (SVCP
) second plant opened earlier this year in Riyadh with a capacity of 70,000 tonnes, joining another factory of the company whose capacity has been drummed up over the years to 100,000 tonnes.
Saudi Vitrified Clay Pipe Company (SVCP
) will be in a better position to serve domestic and overseas markets when its new factory opens for commercial production this month (September).
