Fine Tubes, a world-leading manufacturer and distributor of precision tubes for critical applications, is delighted to announce that it has appointed Bait Al-Aseel to act as its agent in Kuwait.
The decision forms part of Fine Tubes’ strategic plan to secure further growth in the market for exotic alloy tubing across the Middle East region. Demand for this type of tubing continues to increase in line with greater operating demands matched by a desire for an extended service life that traditional alloys are unable to achieve.
Bait Al-Aseel is a long-established and highly regarded contractor servicing the power and energy industries in Kuwait. Its prestigious client list includes Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC), Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) and the Kuwaiti Ministry of Electricity and Water.
Nick Head, Fine Tubes’ Business Development Manager for Oil & Gas/Chemical Processes, commented: “The appointment of Bait Al Aseel is an important one for us and represents a significant addition to the agent partnerships we already have in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar and Oman. We’re looking forward to working closely with them to develop new opportunities in this key market.”
Faisal Al Shayeji, Bait Al Aseel’s General Manager, commented: “Fine Tubes’ expertise in manufacturing specialist corrosion resistant alloys matches the rising demand for exotic alloy tubing in Kuwait. We are excited to be representing a company capable of manufacturing this extensive range of alloys and working with the Fine Tubes sales team to acquire new business in the region.”
