Project introduction In its operation Hammpton Limited is to rely on its strong ties with European partners and producers, most importantly on Aluplast – a German PVC profile maker renown for its utmost quality as well as Gretsch-Unitas GmbH – German construction fittings makers with long-term experience and technical know-how of German tradition. Hammpton Limited is bringing to Saudi Arabia the best of the German quality in all - technology, safety and design to be combined with state of the art assembly and installation while the final product will meet advanced technological standards required by the European Union. The PVC – U window production process is to be controlled by KLAES software. KLAES is the world's leading company for innovative software solutions in window, door and facade business to offer complete integrated solutions. The software will allow for work flows, information management, product organization and controlling to be flexible and absolutely reliable at the same time Hammpton Limited is to built a PVC-U window assembly plant in Saudi Arabia that is to operate under Hammpton Middle East Ltd. The finished product is to carry a Fenstera brand name, and it is going to be the sole product of the intended production.
The market demand is expected to rise simply based on Riyadh ’ s population growth that triggers housing and infrastructure needs. For Saudi Arabia - the biggest economy in the Middle East - the average real growth forecasted per year between 2010 and 2014 is at 4.13 percent . With the economic growth and population demands Saudi construction market holds an ample opportunity for building development.
Housing market definition
A recent study conducted by the Saudi-based Jiwar Real Estate Management and Marketing Firm reveals that around one million new homes are to be built over the next five years to keep up with an estimated 3.3 percent compounded annual growth in demand. This growth indeed translates into about 5,5 million required units by 2014.
Within the construction market the PVC windows market is expected to grow significantly within the next few years. Saudi economic survey indicates that for the past 5 years since the PVC was introduced in Saudi Arabia, it has accounted for 5-10% of the windows market.
The competition consists of two companies with the Saudi Industries For PVC Windows Co. Ltd . running at the forefront with almost 70% of market share . The strength of our competitors lies in their already secured presence on the market. Stemming from such their production is already established and tuned while possessing the necessary knowledge of the local market. However on the other hand the lack of competition causes a narrow product range and limited market supply combined with long delivery times. At the same time the existing machinery & equipment parks often consist of outdated technology . Major competitors :

ALUPLAST company profiles will allow our windows to have the best properties and characteristics:
low thermal conductivity which is achieved via the choice for material of the window profile and the selection of the glass. Especially in an air-conditioned building, the PVC windows can reduce the loss of energy to 30%.
strict corrosion resistant standards that is especially important in the Saudi Arabian environment with it ’ s desert climate and high pollution exposure due to heavy industries.
noise reduction due to the PVC-U material and the multi-chambered designed. By cutting unnecessary disturbances the product will be suited for Hospitals, Schools and Office Buildings.
low coefficient of thermal expansion which will allow it to be easily operated even under extremely warm weather conditions (out door temperature of 45 deg. C and more). The maximum thermal expansion is 0.36 m/m for 1.5 meter of profile.
safe from electrical conductivity thanks to its high electrical insulation
