Pall Corporation, a global filtration, separation and purification company, opened a new office in Saudi Arabia April 28 to meet the growing demand for its advanced fluid management solutions in the Middle East.

The new office, located in Al Khobar, is the company's second office in the Middle East after opening its regional headquarters in Dubai (UAE) in October of 2010. The company has operated in the region since 2003.

“The needs of our customers in the Middle East continue to evolve and demand for our advanced fluid management solutions continues to grow,” Larry Kingsley, Pall president and CEO, said in an official announcement. “The addition of our new Saudi Arabia office reinforces Pall’s commitment to the region, as well as to our customers in the area.”

At the Al Khobar site, Pall will have a customer support team, as well as an engineering facility dedicated to serving local customers and multinational companies that partner with Pall in the region. Pall provides filtration, separation and purification solutions that address both process management and environmental requirements. The company’s products are used in oil and gas, petrochemicals, power generation, pharmaceuticals, and water treatment.

In March, Pall announced a partnership with the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia to drive advances in water treatment, alternative fuels, and other areas of critical importance to communities and businesses in the Middle East and around the globe. As part of the KAUST Industry Collaboration Program (KICP), Pall will participate in research relating to filtration, separation, and purification technologies in areas such as water treatment and alternative fuels.
