Centurion is set to become the first head-protection company to establish its manufacturing operations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, according to Construction Week Online. The company has set up tools in Saudi Arabia to mould the head-protection products for the Middle East's construction market. The company attended Intersec 2017 where its chief executive officer, Jeff Ward, hosted a seminar where he outlined the brand's strategy for the Middle East. 

He said, 'With a constant flow of major infrastructure projects planned throughout the region, there has never been a greater need for continuing advancement in head protection systems to ensure workers can deliver their best." 

“By building on more than 100 years of specialism in this space, we’re proud to be an enabler, focussing on enhancing wearability to empower workers to shape the modern world we live in, and have the confidence to think clearly.”

With this increase in regional focus, Centurion appointed Ahmed Kamel as sales manager for the MENA region. Kamel explained, “We’re hearing from customers that this is the right time to really cement our focus in the region, and our manufacturing presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is testament to this.”

“Whilst safety, of course, remains paramount, our [Intersec] seminar also highlighted the importance of comfort, style, and durability in head protection, and we’re looking forward to delivering new product innovations in 2017,” he concluded.
