Bahrain International Investment Park gets two new industrial facilities
Feb '11
Dr. Hassan Fakhro, Minister of Industry and Commerce, recently inaugurated two new manufacturing plants at Salman Industrial City's Bahrain International Investment Park. The two facilities include the Bahrain Industrial Filters and Gulf Temperature Sensors.

The Bahrain Industrial Filters project, a facility spread over an area of 1600 sq. m. required an investment of more than five million dollars, while it generated 40 new job opportunities. This new facility would produce fabric filters by using woven as well as non-woven fabrics, teflon, fibre glass and polymeric micro porous coated media. The final output of this new facility is meant for use in the cement, petrochemicals, aluminium, food processing, refineries and plastic industries, in both the local and regional markets.

The Minister, in a public address further said that, Bahrain welcomes all the genuine companies to start their operations in the Kingdom in order to penetrate into the regional markets. He also stated that, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, apart from working on enhancing the infrastructural facilities like BIIP, is also functional on developing the legal and administrative framework, so as to develop the Kingdom as Middle East's most investor and trade friendly market.
