Kimmco-Isover, which was formed after Alghanim Industries joined forces with French construction giant Saint-Gobain Isover, will be a fixture at The Big 5 2018, which will be held on 26-29 November at Dubai World Trade Centre. Its presence comes not long after it launched a stone wool plant in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia and the integration of Kimmco in Kuwait.

With a 40-year track record in manufacturing, technology, and supply of insulation materials to Middle East markets, Kimmco and Saint-Gobain Isover now offer their full range of glass wool and stone wool products and systems under the brand Kimmco-Isover.

Speaking on the tie up, Jamal Abou Saleh, Kimmco-Isover’s executive director, says: “The new synergy of local market knowledge and global expertise will enable us to supply mineral wool for all building types, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and industrial applications.

“This will strengthen further our Kimmco-Isover product quality, service and innovation capabilities to offer sustainable insulation solutions to our customers,” he added.

Kimmco-Isover, set to appear at stand Z5 B81, will supply glass wool from its Kuwait plant and stone wool from Saudi Arabia, making it the largest mineral wool player in the Middle East, Saleh says. The company has provided its insulation solutions to many iconic buildings over the years and is supplying insulation for mega projects such as the upcoming Kuwait International Airport, Jeddah Tower, Al Zour refinery, and others.

The Big 5 2018 will see the group exhibit a full range of stone wool and glass wool products for a variety of needs, from low temperature applications in HVAC, to building applications, and high-temperature industrial applications.
