Bitumat Manufacturing Complex

BITUMAT manufacturing facilities are sprawled over an area of over 100,000 square meters and it cradles one of the best equipped and manned laboratories and roofing academy in the waterproofing world

Millions of square meters have been installed over thousands of projects around the world.

Bitumat was founded in 1984 but its roots go back to 1975 when the founders became involved in the roofing waterproofing industry as dealer and applicator in Saudi Arabia for a major manufacturer from the U.S.A.

The founders’ vast experience in the industry was the motivator behind the concept of backward integration of becoming a manufacturer as well as an applicator.

The knowledge and experience with American and European manufacturers and products led to its choice of the most cost effective modern roofing / waterproofing technology . . . modified bitumen.

Their vast knowledge based on practical experience and meticulous research led the founders also to the best sources of modified bitumen technology, machinery, raw material and formulation.

BITUMAT manufacturing complex is one of the largest in the world that includes four membrane lines, one waterstop line, one tape line.

Additionally, there are three oxidation blowing columns, one coating factory, emulsions and construction chemicals factory.

 


BITUMAT exports to the GCC and the Far East contributed nearly half the turnover by the late eighties. Available capacity soon became a constraint, leading to a phased expansion, which have enhanced the original capacity by more than five times. Encouraged by its success in waterproofing, Bitumen diversified into building chemicals and adhesives.  

BITUMAT exports activities cover more than 50 countries around the world. BITUMAT has a well-established distributor network in the Gulf, Middle East, Asia, Far East, Africa, North Africa, Latin America and Asia Pacific.
