Saudi Arabia-based food and beverage manufacturer Almarai Company is expanding further into the Middle East poultry production business with the construction of a new broiler hatchery.


The company acquired poultry integrator Hadco in 2009 and is now looking to become a leader in the poultry industry. Almarai has partnered with Petersime to build the greenfield hatchery, which will have state-of-the-art incubators, automation equipment and climate control systems. "My goal is to build the greenfield hatchery within the budget, time frame and industry-leading quality standards of Almarai," said Almarai Construction Projects Manager John Traynor. "My team is working closely together with Petersime’s project department, since they will not only supply the incubation equipment, but also all additional hatchery equipment such as climate control systems and automation.”
