Caparol completes Khalidiya Mall project
Dubai, November 20, 2008
Caparol, the producers of high quality exterior and interior paints, enamels, glazes and structural coatings and a partner of Emaar Industries & Investments, has completed the stone finish paint project on Abu Dhabi’s Khalidiya Mall.
Caparol utilised its CapaStone range for the project, which gives the mall a natural, characteristic finish. The range consists of five main products, which provide a range of colours and finishes tailored to the needs of the numerous projects undertaken by Caparol across the region.
“We first introduced the CapaStone range to the UAE market 10 years ago and it has become the finish of choice for architects, designers and applicators here due to its durability and value addition to projects,' stated Gary Seabrook, general manager of Caparol.
'The range is a testament to the research and development conducted by our German HQ as it provides a genuine and competitive alternative to solid stone panels that have been traditionally utilized in the region,” he added.
“We’ve seen the implementation of the CapaStone range in a number of prestigious projects in the UAE and Khalidiya Mall in Abu Dhabi is the latest and largest shopping mall completed in this range. The architects required a rugged effect with a natural stone finish,” explained Seabrook.
Caparol is the market leader for building paints in Germany, Austria and Turkey and with approximately €1 billion turnover is the largest private paint manufacturer in Europe in the decorative paint market. However, Caparol’s operations span from Europe to the Middle East (Headquartered in Dubai) and all the way to markets in the Far East.
“The CapaStone range has proved so successful here because of its durability in a region with extreme environmental conditions and its aesthetic prowess and we are building our markets around an ability to provide for the needs of the GCC,” concluded Gary Seabrook.-TradeArabia News Service
