The new deal strengthens the existing joint venture between both companies, which only covers the supply of the coatings producer’s International Paint brand, along with coil and packaging coatings. Under the terms of the expanded agreement, AkzoNobel will offer products from across its performance coatings portfolio, including professional woodcare, automotive refinish, marine, yacht, fire protection, protective and powder coatings.

"We are very pleased to build on our long-standing relationship with the Kanoo family by signing this agreement," said Leif Darner, AkzoNobel's Executive Committee member responsible for Performance Coatings. "It will give us a firm foothold in the Middle East and a solid platform from which to deliver on our ambitious growth strategy in the region. We see many opportunities for our products and services to supply the construction, oil and gas and transportation sectors in the Middle East."

AkzoNobel currently employs more than 200 people across its two main plants in the Middle East. Both sites are planning increased investments to support the enlarged business portfolio, with work on a new powder coatings facility in Dubai having already started.
