Happy 20th Anniversary


This year marks the 20th anniversary of Alwan Powder Coatings, a licensee of the Protech/Oxyplast Group. Alwan is one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of powder coatings in the MENA region. Alwan Powder Coatings was established in 1993 and is now one of the largest producers of powder coatings in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Countries with annual production capacity at almost 7500 MT.

From April 1st to April 3rd, Gulf Polyester and Epoxy Powder Coatings hosted a conference highlighting new technologies and the environmental benefits of powder coatings.

The meeting took place in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudia Arabia, and was attended by management, customers and suppliers. Also in attendance were Lestrade George of the Protech’s Montreal R & D lab,Mike Reinerth, Canada`s national sales manager and Ronan Van Rijsbergen, R&D manager of Belgium.

A wide range of topics were discussed at the conference including powders for wood, Sterilcoat anti-microbial coatings, possible coatings for aluminum extrusions, as well as rebar and pipe coatings.  The possibility of partnering for purchasing raw materials was also discussed.  Alwan has some very large customers in the Mid-East and continues, with the help of Protech, to enlarge its product lines.  The conference was a huge success and surely will lead to more cooperation between Alwan and the Protech/Oxyplast group.  We thank Alwan for putting on a great conference and allowing us to participate.
