Jotun paints Saudi organisation premises
Dubai, May 13, 2013
Leading producer of paints, Jotun, has announced it has successfully completed the painting of the entire premises of the Hope Centre for Exceptional Needs Children, Saudi Arabia’s first and only multilingual centre for life skills.
The exteriors, which measured 10,000 sq m in size, were painted with colours that were specially picked out from the ‘Jotashield Extreme’ colour range, a statement from the company said. The application of the new coat of paint will help reduce temperatures for the villas and add beauty to the centre’s walls.
Along with its 2X heat reflective key feature, Jotashield Extreme is guaranteed to provide 10 years performance, protection against the toughest harsh arid climate condition, 2X UV protected colours, low dirt pick-up, anti-carbonation and sustainability.
David Wright, managing director for Jotun Saudi Arabia, said: “Jotun has been a long time supporter of Hope and its objectives of developing the skills of children with exceptional needs. Donating our time and paint was well worth it when we saw the smiles and the cheers from the kids. We suggested painting two of the centre’s villas with ‘Jotashield Extreme,’ which benefits both the children and the management as temperatures get reduced along with energy costs.”
“The participation of Jotun’s management staff in painting the centre supports our high level of commitment to corporate social responsibility activities and to reaching out to the local community while also promoting the use of high-quality eco-friendly products.”
‘Jotashield Extreme’ is one of Jotun's superior range of exterior paints that provides indoor thermal comfort and a longer-lasting finish with exceptional protection. Currently ‘Jotashield Extreme’ is the only product available in the Middle East that provides significant temperature reductions for the home.
“We would like to thank Jotun for giving us a new bright and colourful look for our facilities here in Hope Centre,” said Uzma Raheem, founder, Hope Centre. “The fresh coat of paint that the villas received has helped bring in smiles from our children and have also encouraged them to learn and develop more skills during their stay with us.”
“Companies like Jotun, who have continuously supported our objectives, have become essential partners towards our vision of helping children with exceptional needs and training them to become responsible and productive members of society.” – TradeArabia News Service
