In his speech, Naghi said the launch of Rheem air conditioners is in line with Vision 2030, which aims to develop retail trade and enhance the Kingdom’s GDP. The partnership with the US company will also result in the transfer of technology to Saudi Arabia, he said.
Naghi said maintenance and training centers will meet customer demand for quality control and after-sales services. “In addition, the company has also set up a training center to qualify Saudi men and women in maintenance and sales work in preparation for acquiring the American (Rheem) technology in Saudi Arabia,” Naghi added.

He said the launch of Rheem in Saudi Arabia through United Yousef Mohammed Naghi Company underlines the deep trade partnership and the historical relationship between the two friendly countries.
Gliha said he is pleased with the confidence of Saudi traders in American products and is looking forward to more trade and investment partnerships.
“Any Saudi trader looking for investment opportunities and commercial partnership should not hesitate to contact the Consulate General of the United States,” he added.
Rheem participated in the recent Saudi construction show “The Big 5 Saudi” held in Jeddah.
The launch ceremony was attended by a number of Arab and foreign diplomats in Saudi Arabia, businessmen and media persons.

Bahri strengthens market footprint in Asia-Pacific region

Saudi logistics and transportation company Bahri has announced the expansion of its market presence in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region’s maritime industry. The stronger presence will help the company gain deeper insights into market trends as well as customer needs in chemicals and logistics sectors in Singapore and the wider APAC region.
The announcement took place at a ceremony held on April 5 at Regent Hotel in Singapore, in the presence of Abdullah Aldubaikhi, CEO of Bahri, and senior executives of the region’s oil majors, petrochemical trading companies and ship brokers.
The expansion will also enable Bahri Logistics and Bahri Chemicals, two of five business units of the company, to market their offerings, acquire new clients, serve existing clients, and channelize the communications. Bahri has plans to expand the services of its other business units to the APAC region in the future.
Bahri CEO Aldubaikhi said: “In our efforts to deliver on Bahri’s vision of connecting economies, sharing prosperity, and driving excellence in global logistics services, we have been actively pursuing the company’s ambitious long-term strategy to drive sustainable growth and expand its market footprint. As a result, we have established a solid presence regionally and globally. Our expansion in the Asia-Pacific region represents a key milestone in our journey, and with this, we have come even closer to our customers, allowing us to serve them better offering a wider range of industry services and unprecedented value.”
Over the past 41 years, Bahri has steadily expanded market presence to cement its position as a global leader in the maritime industry. The company currently has offices in Saudi Arabia, UAE, US and India, in addition to a vast network of agents across the Middle East and Africa, US, Europe, and Asia.
