RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA: Dow Chemical Company will invest in a world-class manufacturing facility for Dow Filmtec reverse osmosis (RO) elements in Saudi Arabia. The move will make it the only manufacturer offering a full portfolio of water treatment technologies.

“Dow has a 50-year history of innovation and market leadership in the water industry. Saudi Arabia and nearby emerging markets represent a tremendous opportunity for Dow. Our plan is to complement our commercial presence with a manufacturing footprint, thereby bringing us closer to regional customers and strengthening the global competitiveness of our water business,” said Jerome Peribere, President and CEO, Dow Advanced Materials and Executive VP, Dow.

The proposed facility would deliver local supply security of cutting-edge technologies for water desalination and water re-use for potable, non-potable and industrial water serving Saudi Arabia, surrounding Middle East and North Africa region and emerging markets worldwide. High-performance Dow Filmtec membranes are used in some of the most water-challenged areas of the world, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Algeria.
