Saudi, French coating companies form new JV
Sipco, BS Coatings agree to promote Eurokote and Endoprene products
Saudi Industrial Paint Company (Sipco) and BS Coatings of France have entered into a JV agreement to develop and promote the Sipco brand and product lines.
“BS Coatings has been involved in pipeline protection coatings since the end of the Second World War, and probably has the largest range of liquid and powder coatings for pipelines in the world.
"This JV with Sipco gives us the opportunity to be able to seriously promote and introduce these technologies in the Middle East,” said BS Coatings chairman Gérard Gaillard.
Sipco is one of the largest Saudi Arabian-owned manufacturers of high-performance specialty coatings for corrosion control and substrate protection, mainly including pipeline coatings, tank-lining coatings and coatings for structural buildings.
BS Coatings, which has been in business for over 65 years, develops and commercialises coating solutions intended for hydrocarbon and water-pipe transportation and storage and industrial markets.
