Dubai, April 12, 2012
Jotun Powder Coatings has combined its powder and liquid coatings to create and develop a new extensive range of pipeline coating solutions; providing transmission pipelines with the required protection – both inside and out.
The move complements Jotun’s efforts to increase its regional market share over the next three years, a statement said.
The move also aims to create a one-stop-shop for Jotun’s customers and provide a single point of contact to meet the unique pipeline coating needs of oil and gas companies and pipeline applicators.
To date, Jotun currently enjoys a 30 per cent market share of the Middle East pipeline coatings market and plans to significantly increase its presence over the next three years. Jotun is widely recognised as a leading pipeline coating solutions provider; protecting more than 100,000 km of pipelines over the last 30 years.
“Combining both liquid and powder coatings to create a new range of pipeline coating solutions that provide the best protection inside and out, is in line with our move towards achieving an increased presence in the region’s pipeline coatings segment,” said Andrea Meconcelli, global commercial director for Functional and Architectural - Jotun Powder Coatings and the global concept manager for Jotun Pipeline Solutions.
“Our dedication towards the research and development of improved powder and liquid coating solutions has placed us at the forefront of the coatings industry. Jotun will continue to remain steadfast in its commitment to meet the demands of our growing customer base by offering a more streamlined supply chain covering all stages - from quotation to delivery.”
The expansion move will be accompanied with a ‘Tough Outside. Tough Inside’ theme and focus - conveying the key message of Jotun’s deep seated commitment to provide a comprehensive range of internal and external pipeline coatings under one single source solution concept.
“Jotun is firmly committed in its drive to meet every need and requirement presented by our clients in the Middle East and the rest of world.
