Jotun Paints, one of the world’s leading producers and suppliers of paints and coatings, is moving towards strengthening its presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) with the opening of the company’s new offices in Bilda Mall, Riyadh. The new facilities were inaugurated by His Excellency Carl Schiotz Wibye, Norwegian Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, in the presence of Jotun Group senior officials and guests. The new offices will act as the company’s sales, marketing and administrative office and also house the protective marine and powder functions. The opening reflects Jotun’s continuing business growth in the Kingdom and also complements the company’s initiatives that are aimed at providing better customer service.
Jotun Saudia maintains a strong presence in KSA with a total of over 2 environmental friendly factories in key locations like Yanbu and Jeddah. The company’s new offices are located within accessible distance to the warehouse and CSD, and maintains a fully computerized set-up, which is equipped with the latest communication software that allows them 24/7 seamless connection to the Jotun global network. Jotun’s warehousing and customer service department (CSD) facilities will still be based in its old facility in Solay, Riyadh.
“The opening of our new Jotun offices in Saudi Arabia shows the continued business growth that we are enjoying in the country and also marks our commitment to better serve our growing customer base,” said Kjell Gundersen, Managing Director, Jotun Saudia Co. Ltd. “Jotun Saudia remains steadfast in its commitment towards implementing key initiatives in customer servicing, the quality of our products, human resource and information resource technology. We also affirm our support in the government’s continuing efforts to help the business community - thereby attracting in more investment opportunities into the Kingdom.”
