Aquilex Arabia ( Ali A. Tamimi / Aquilex Compnay )

aquilex-arabiaCommencing at the signing ceremony in April of 2010, the US based Aquilex Corporation and the Saudi Arabian based Ali A. Tamimi Company have agreed to launch Aquilex Arabia, Ltd. to provide robotic repair and overhaul solutions to the Middle East energy market. "We have been working for two years to structure this company, and we are making significant progress toward effectively creating a market around our advanced robotic technologies here in the Middle East, " states Brian Simer, Financial Manager for Aquilex Arabia. He and Neil MacDonald, General Manager, relocated this past summer to the Eastern Providence to lead the start up.
Aquilex Arabia will structure their local operations to leverage over 25 years ofb experience within their existing footprint in the United States and Europe. Aquilex is the worldwide leader in market share at applying weld metal overlay to repair and prevent erosion and corrosion in pressure vessel structure and components, piping and static equipment. Aquilex's renowned teams of metallurgists customize engineered solutions to address a wide range of maintenance demands in the refinery, petrochemical and power sectors. Simer adds, "We are in the final stages of completing our commercial registration, at which time we will be conducting a road show communicating and demonstrating the value of our repair solutions to every strategic potential customer in the Kingdom. We anticipate the maintenance engineers and turnaround managers will embrace having an option to repair their vessels and components to OEM standards at a fraction of the cost in a considerably shorter period of time, when compared to the tradition of replacing such items." Aquilex Arabia is currently building a state of the art facility on the Tamimi Trading campus across from the 2nd Dammam City expected to be completed in mid ‐ 2011.
