PM Group was awarded the detailed design of a new $170 million state-of-the-art infant nutritional facility in Saudi Arabia for Almarai, the Gulf’s largest dairy firm. The announcement was made during an Enterprise Ireland trade mission led by Irish Tánaiste, Mary Coughlan.
The proposed multi-million dollar greenfield nutritional facility will produce high quality infant formula for the Arab world, initially focusing in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) states and is being designed to cater for future expansion.
The first of its kind in the region, the 35,000sqm world class facility will be built to the highest building and hygiene standards incorporating the latest in process technology. The five-month detailed design phase has already begun in PM Group’s Dublin office, with construction due to begin in August 2009.
