Jotun Paints, one of the world's leading producers and suppliers of paints and coatings, announced that it has supplied industry-leading decorative and protective paint products for Majid Al Futtaim’s ‘Wahooo Waterpark’ in Bahrain, which is the largest water theme park in the Middle East. Located in Bahrain City Centre and spanning over 15,000 sq. metres, ‘Wahooo Waterpark’ features an incredible mix of slides, chutes and rising rapids, and is the region’s first ever indoor/outdoor temperature-controlled waterpark. Jotun has signed an agreement to deliver interior and exterior paints and coatings with M/s Sim Leisure, the main contractor; and M/s Hertal Global Bahrain, the appointed applicator for this project.


Dubai-based Majid Al Futtaim Group has been at the forefront of tourism developments and groundbreaking retail projects for over a decade. Their latest mall, the Bahrain City Centre, has proved a massive hit with international and GCC visitors to Bahrain. Due to high daily traffic and environmental factors, the high-rise, high-thrill waterpark required a unique painting solution, which can provide a lasting protection as well as attractive and vivid colours that depict the fun-filled atmosphere at ‘Wahooo Waterpark’. With this in mind, the Jotun team has used a combination of its premium products, which included ‘Jotafloor’ for the floorings and ‘Fenomastic Silk’ for the interiors. The waterpark’s exterior has been coated with the highly durable and weather resistant ‘Hardtop XP’, as well as pure acrylic ‘Jotashield Heritage Traditional Tex’.

“Jotun is committed to meeting the demands and unique needs of the Bahrain market through innovative technology, and our involvement in a wide expanse of projects from across the region underlines our position as a leader in providing the most versatile paints and coatings solutions,” said Eirik Kristensen, Regional Marketing Manager - MENA, Jotun Paints. “’Wahooo Waterpark’ is one of our most current projects, and we are proud to have been a part of this excellent project and work with the Majid Al Futtaim Group for this high profile endeavour.”


As a multi-faceted organization with over 37 years of experience in the Middle East market, Jotun Paints has shown its ability to meet the global requirements of high profile projects at all levels through its new technologies, customised solutions, and extensive technical expertise and support. Jotun Paints has been providing prestigious projects in the region with high quality, cost effective decorative and protective coatings, which can withstand extreme levels of UV light, various levels of humidity and corrosion, high and low ambient temperatures and other environmental pollutants to preserve their strength and appearance over the span of their service life cycle.


“Through our active involvement with a majority of mega projects in Bahrain and the reinforcement of our dedicated sales team and paint professionals across our local branches in the country, we are aiming to entrench our presence within this stable growing market. By working with the largest developers and construction companies and delivering top-quality paint and coating solutions, we are expecting to steadily move towards achieving our goals for an aggressive growth in Bahrain,” concluded Shafique Siddique, Country Manager, Jotun Paints, Bahrain.
