Mattex Geosynthetics opens UAE and Saudi plants
Company invests $40.8mn in new production facilities
Mattex Geosynthetics has invested more than $40.8mn (AED150mn) in new production facilities for woven and non-woven geotextiles.
The vertical integrated production plants are located in Dubai (UAE) and Al Jubail (KSA) and will serve the demand for geotextiles in the GCC for railway projects.
With a capacity of over 100mn m2, Mattex Geosynthetics is able to supply to the whole GCC railway network.
A spokesperson said: “The very weak Sabkha soil which is typically found on the eastern coast of the GCC has very poor bearing capacities. Significant quality improvement and cost savings are made when the GeoMatt is installed.”
Mattex Geosynthetics developed an ultra-performing range of woven and non-woven geotextiles specifically designed to help contractors and governments to work in a quick, cost effective and sustainable way.
