SKM ... firmly in control

SKM leading the HVAC sector in the Gulf region

The company has signed an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) agreement for centrifugal chillers to have the full SKM air conditioning product portfolio set up for distribution in all its markets

Since its inception in 1974, SKM has demonstrated significant growth and has become one of the leading manufacturers of HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) equipment in the region.

The company was founded with a single-minded objective – to meet the growing needs of indoor environment quality in some of the world’s harshest climates.

Driven by its mission "Total Customer Satisfaction", SKM offers a complete range of superior quality HVAC products that are certified by globally-recognised bodies like Eurovent, AHRI, TÜV and UL.

SKM products have demonstrated efficient working in various geographic locations and they have been used in many landmark projects across the region, justifying the slogan "you name it, we cool it".

SKM has supplied its products for many blue-chip projects such as Al Mashaaer Al Mugaddassah Metro Project and King Abdullah Financial District in Saudi Arabia, World Trade Centre and National Theatre in Bahrain, United Tower and Jumeriah Beach Hotel in Kuwait, Energy City HQ Building at Lusail City Qatar, Wave Muscat P10 & 12 in Oman, Infinity Tower and Deira City Centre in Dubai and Al Noor Mosque in Sharjah.

"This year we have a big list of initiatives that are getting alive one by one. We are happy to declare that our mini-split wall units and ducted units assembly lines are now running at full capacity. We have also finalised the supplier registration of our products with Aramco, which should boost our Saudi Arabia operations very soon," says SKM CEO Abdul Karim Al Saleh.

SKM has been included in the Saudi Aramco Supplier Information System for all the 9COM products. The company has a long and proven track record in manufacturing special products and supplying HVAC solutions for onshore and offshore oil and gas installations. It has been providing environmental engineering solutions to high risk hazardous areas for the past 20 years.

SKM capitalises on oil and gas areas of expertise to provide the best engineering solutions to the end-users. SKM also holds ATEX certification for its modified Hermetic Reciprocating compressors suitable for Zone 2, IIB and T3. SKM manufacturing facilities are certified from IECEx for the application of quality systems for equipment in explosive atmospheres.

The company has also signed an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) agreement for centrifugal chillers to have the full SKM air conditioning product portfolio set up for distribution in all its markets. SKM also has its centralised procurement up and running with strong synergies with sister companies in different markets.

SKM has been awarded the contract to supply HVAC equipment for three out of the five packages of Kuwait’s $13 billion new refinery at Al-Zour, which is expected to be the largest of its kind in the Middle East with production capacity of 1.24 million barrels per day.
