The region’s construction industry is due to deliver projects worth US$500 billion by 2015*, providing a huge opportunity for the floor covering sector.”

“We are also seeing an increase in government sponsored infrastructure projects, for example in Saudi Arabia over $13 billion of construction contracts have been awarded in the Kingdom in Q1 2011 alone**. The construction sector is expected to continue its impressive growth as the Saudi government set forth plans to develop the Kingdom’s infrastructure in the 2011 budget.”

One of the world-leaders in contract floor coverings, Balta provides products across the floor covering spectrum from woven area rugs to wall-to-wall carpets, needlefelt and fungrass to carpet tiles.
