SaUDI Arabian interiors specialist Alarabi Decoration has broken into the Spanish market in royal style, with a ''mission impossible'' in Marbella on the Costa del Sol.

''After Kazakhstan and Italy, Alarabi has now arrived in Spain,'' says president Pietro Nebbia. "French company Oger International, one of the largest European contractors, has awarded us a contract for all the artistic decorative gypsum and special finishing works on the Royal Palace in Marbella, one the most prestigious projects in the area.''

"It is, again, one of those impossible projects, where skill, organisation, total dedication and professional coordination are indispensable in order to complete the job within its extremely tight schedule,'' continues Nebbia. "This is, once more, a huge challenge for our company, but we are confident that with our 80 Spanish specialists as well as the expertise of our 150 artisans from Jeddah, we will be able to list it as another success for Alarabi."

"We are proud to have been selected over several highly-qualified European competitors and we shall leave no stone unturned to complete the task to the complete satisfaction of the contractor, consultants and client,'' he says. ''We are always keen to show off our capabilities in Europe and after having made our mark in Italy, we are now eager to earn a name for ourselves, in the field of artistic finishing, in Spain," says Nebbia.

Alarabi, a Jeddah-based company with European management, has executed several prestigious projects within the Kingdom, including Royal palaces and the New King Fahd International Airport in Dhahran.

Overseas, Alarabi's top projects include the Presidential Palace and Parliament Hall in Kazakhstan, the Casino du Liban in Beirut, Lebanon, the Sheraton Hotel (Deluxe Collection) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, as well as hotels and palaces in Bahrain, Kuwait and Egypt.
