Centurion, above-the-neck PPE specialists, are continuing their focus in the Middle East after sharing its growth strategy and plans for 2017.

Renowned for creating pioneering head protection systems, Centurion, in conjunction with its existing distributor, Hamed Al Qahtani Universal Market Company, brought together over a 100 key decision makers. Companies such as Sabic, United and Chevron came together over 2 days across Jabail and Dammam to discuss the first safety helmet to be manufactured in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Centurion is the first and only industrial head-protection company to establish manufacturing operations in KSA. The Concept safety helmet, made from a unique grade of ABS, up to 20% lighter than most other industrial safety helmets and provides up to 40% more ventilation via its innovative ventilation system.

Jeff Ward, CEO at Centurion, commented: “Sharing our vision with other key decision makers and safety experts is a great way for us to showcase our range of products to new markets.”

“We’re aware that ABS safety helmets are uncommon in this market, and by holding seminars alongside Hamed Al Qahtani Universal Market Company, we’re able to meet potential customers, showcasing our innovative head protection systems. It has cemented our focus in the region and we’re looking forward to establishing new partnerships.”

This is Centurion’s first step in supporting the Saudi Arabia 2030 vision. For more information about Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, visit http://vision2030.gov.sa/en
