Dussur aims to create sustainable companies that catalyze the growth of industrial value chains in strategic industrial sectors in the Kingdom, such as industrial metals and specialty chemicals, and other important sectors.
The Kingdom is blessed with a rich endowment of metals and minerals that can spearhead the development of competitive value chains serving a multitude of advanced industries. Building on the Kingdom’s mining strategy, Dussur aims to complement existing upstream capabilities by filling gaps, creating competitive advantages, and enabling strategic sectors in specialty metals and base metals. The value chain focus is in mid-stream, downstream, secondary upstream, and metal recovery, aiming to both localize and integrate targeted investments in the global supply chain and bring leading technologies and capabilities to support Vision2030 industrial diversification. Focusing on titanium, aluminum, specialty steel, zinc and copper, and high value alloy agents, Dussur will play a critical role in further developing long term sustainable high-value industries such as aerospace, conventional power, renewables, automotive, and oil and gas, among others.
The chemicals sector is already a mega-sector within the Kingdom with a complex value chain. In the specialty chemicals sector, Dussur targets investments in detergents and surfactants, polymer additives, polymer processing, and CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, and Elastomers). These investments aim to fill the gaps in industries such as electronics, aircrafts, healthcare, packaging, construction, and pharmaceuticals. Dussur looks at existing facilities within the value chain for potential synergies, evaluates potential opportunities to create industrial clusters, and collaborates with the private sector to build on the existing capability and extend the value chain offering.
