Mattex Geosynthetics is currently building a new, vertically-integrated nonwoven geotextile facility in Saudi Arabia, according to a March 10 press release from the company.
The high-tenacity fiber and nonwoven geotextiles plant in Al Jubail, KSA, is expected to be operational and ready for orders by the end of the year. The release describes products that will complement a woven geotextiles line that is currently under further development.
The Mattex press release described how the company has direct access to raw materials, which are manufactured next to its production sites.
Mattex started its production of geosynthetics with polypropylene woven geotextiles. This woven range is now being expanded with the production of a variety of nonwoven, high-tenacity geotextiles.
The Mattex group started the production of polypropylene slit film woven fabrics in 1996. The group has two manufacturing sites in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, one production facility in Dubai, UAE, and is currently expanding in Al Jubail, KSA. The total production area of the manufacturing sites now covers more than 191,000 square meters, according to the press release.
Mattex is headquartered in Dubai, with warehouses and representative offices in Australia/New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East, China, Africa, and the U.S. (Calhoun, Ga.).
