Located in phase III of Jeddah’s Industrial Zone, its manufacturing plant is one of the most modern, self-contained specialty packaging plants in the Middle East.

The year 2006, saw the commissioning of Saudi Can’s second plant located in Yanbu Al-Sinaiyah’s Light Industrial Park. The Yanbu facility is a purpose built plant specifically designed for the manufacture of plastic containers catering for the growing demand in the market for these types of products.
