Kuwait's SSH has announced plans to invest further in the development of its Bahrain office.

The company said the expansion will increase staff numbers, including senior executives, by 40 personnel. Presently, SSH employs more than 1,100 people in over 11 countries. 

Andrew Barwick, regional director of SSH said: "The Gulf region is one of the fastest-growing in the world, and its rising demand for development, infrastructure and project management services means significant investment opportunities for global companies.

"Bahrain remains a strategic operation for us and we believe the favourable employment environment will help support us in our Middle East operations," remarked Barwick.

He also added: "SSH is already involved with a number of developments in Bahrain including the construction of the new Ras Al Barr Resort, Diyar Al Muharraq, projects with the Ministry of Works, and the Ministry of Housing, amongst others."

"We hope to increase our involvement in the future and continue to support our clients by delivering world-class projects."

Khalid Al Rumaihi, chief executive of the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB) said: “We are delighted that SSH has decided to expand its operations in Bahrain. The growing demand for sophisticated infrastructure and project management services reflect an excellent opportunity for further growth in the sector."
