Irish and international project management specialist PM Group has begun work on a major multi-million dollar development project for Halwani Bros, and is currently working on a range of projects in the Gulf region with capital value close on Eur360 million. Halwani Bros. is one of the Gulf’s oldest food manufacturing companies with major production plants in Jeddah and Egypt. The new Eur45 million complex incorporates four separate sections for tahina and halawa; jams and foods; dairy and cheese and meat products.


In 2010, PM Group began working with Halwani Bros on Phase I of the development which comprises a 10,000 sq m facility for confectionery manufacture, sugar and contract packaging. Phase II will see a new 50,000 sq m state-of-the-art  facility that will supply food products to Saudi Arabia and also for export, where Halwani Bros has a growing footprint in Europe and the US.


The commencement of Halwani Bros’ Phase II marks the further growth of PM Group in Saudi Arabia, who recently expanded their operations and services from their base inRiyadh.


Donal Hutchinson, managing director – MENA, PM Group, comments: “The recent investment made to expand our operations and service levels here has already proven worthwhile. Our involvement in the new food facility for Halwani Bros. is a testament to the hard work and effort of our expert teams on the ground and the support we have from the rest of the group. Food engineering is a sector in which PM Group excels and where we have built a considerable reputation working with the world’s leading multi-national organisations over the past 35 years.”
