Danfoss (a leading manufacturer of high-efficiency electronic and mechanical components and controls for air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration, industrial, and water systems) has announced the launch of its first technical support office in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Revealed at an event held at Sofitel Cornice Hotel in Jeddah yesterday, Danfoss senior executives from Dubai welcomed Mr Mazen Batterjee (Vice Chairmann Jeddah Chamber of commerce) and Mr Mutlaq Al-Tayyari (General Manager, SASO Makkah Al-Mukarramah Branch) as well as Mr Ole Frijis-Madsen (Ambassador of Denmark to Saudi Arabia).

After serving clients in Saudi Arabia for more than 50 years through distributers and agents, Danfoss is now growing its presence in the region through investing in an office that will provide technical support on the ground and will be delivered to the company’s international standard.

Levent Taşkin (Danfoss President of the Turkey, Middle East and Africa Region) commented: “To be further investing in expanding our footprint in the Middle East is a very exciting time for us at Danfoss. Saudi Arabia is a key market and having an official presence in the region will not only further cement our position as a market leader, but will also provide our clients with the unparalleled customer service and technical support that Danfoss proudly delivers through a local office. We are also firmly committed to supporting KSA to reach its 2030 vision through providing the most innovative and sustainable solutions for the cooling, heating and industrial sectors.”

Danfoss is not new to the region, it has been working on many projects in Saudi Arabia including airports, seaports, hospitals, and financial districts to increase the energy efficiency of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) sector, as well as refrigeration and other industrial systems.

Also, attending the celebratory event, Mr Ole Frijis-Madsen (Ambassador of Denmark to Saudi Arabia) said: “Danish companies will be close partners in the implementation of the ambitious and timely Vision 2030 which the Saudi leadership wisely introduced last year. Denmark is known for its quality, reliability, innovation, design and customer focus. Danfoss is one of the companies that reflect all of these unique qualities as a truly global organisation with proud Danish roots. The opening of Danfoss’ office in Jeddah is a clear and very timely signal about the company’s continued commitment to Saudi Arabia.”
