The new pump plant joins the existing Pentair valve manufacturing facility and metal casting foundry in Sharjah, and will serve the region’s commercial and residential sectors.
“This investment reaffirms Pentair’s commitment to the Middle East region,” said Ramesh Nuggihalli, vice president and managing director, Pentair Middle East. “By combining our regional strengths in engineering, manufacturing, sales and distribution with Pentair’s global product design expertise, we can significantly reduce the business development cycle and improve our value proposition for our local customers.”
“Pentair has consistently grown its pump business in the region for many years and we are excited about this next phase of development. The ability to manufacture locally will enable us to provide our customers a broader array of value-added solutions while also enhancing our ability to serve them effectively,” said Gary Witt, president of Pentair Flow Technologies.
Pentair employs more than 1200 people within the Middle East, at manufacturing, services and sales office facilities.
