November 2018

Al Ghanim Industries, one of the largest privately owned companies in the Gulf, and French construction giant Saint-Gobain Isover have joined forces after the recent launch of their new stone wool plant in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia, and the integration of Kimmco in Kuwait.

With a 40-year track record in manufacturing, technology and supply of insulation materials and solutions to the Middle East markets, Kimmco and Saint-Gobain Isover now offer their full range of glasswool and stone wool products and solutions under the brand Kimmco-Isover.

Speaking to the press, Jamal Abou Saleh, executive director of Kimmco-Isover, said: “The new synergy of local market knowledge and global expertise will enable us to supply mineral wool for all building types, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) and industrial applications. This will strengthen further our Kimmco-Isover product quality, service and innovation capabilities to offer sustainable insulation solutions to our customers.”

Kimmco-Isover will be supplying glass wool from its Kuwait plant and stone wool from Saudi Arabia, thus making it the largest mineral wool player in the Middle East. 

 The company has provided its insulation solutions to many iconic buildings over the years and is supplying insulation for mega projects such as the upcoming new Kuwait international airport, Jeddah Tower, Al Zour refinery and others.
