FlexitallicBenoit Labre will oversee Flexitallic LLC's operationsFlexitallic LLC, the global leader in static sealing solutions, has completed a US$4mn investment in a new multi-purpose facility in Ras Al Khaimah, which will support its ambitious growth plans in the Middle East

Over the course of the last seven years Flexitallic has established a strong foothold from its original headquarters in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, where it produces a range of sealing solutions for markets including petrochemical, oil & gas, automotive, marine and aerospace.

The new facility, which is located on the Al Hamra Industrial Area in Ras Al Khaimah, has been built on a 10,000m2 plot of land and provides a manufacturing and warehousing footprint of 3,500m2, greatly expanding the company’s capacity, with the potential to accommodate further increases in capital, when the need arises.

Experienced gasket and sealing specialist, Benoit Labre, who has been with the global Flexitallic group since 2006, has been appointed managing director to oversee Flexitallic LLC’s operations.

Mark Horton, Flexitallic managing director, Eastern Hemisphere, said, “The Middle East represents a high-growth market that is presenting a number of exciting opportunities; the region’s oil and gas industry has remained relatively buoyant during the current difficult global conditions, with many operators and contractors continuing with their own investments that require a quality range of gaskets and sealing solutions to be available on their doorstep.

“With our new multi-purpose facility completed, we will be able to continue to press on with our ambitious plans and drive demand for Flexitallic’s expertise and sealing materials.”
