RAK Ceramics targets Saudi Arabia amid regional slowdown

LONDON, Feb 14: RAK Ceramics, the UAE-based tile-maker, wants to boost its Saudi business amid a tough market elsewhere in the Gulf, report agencies. The Kingdom emerged as a rare regional bright spot as it reported earnings on Wednesday that were defined by "challenging market conditions and increased competition in export markets," it said in a statement. "Saudi Arabia has been a strong market for us predominantly in tiles, where we witnessed a substantial growth in the fourth quarter which reflected positively on the year-on-year growth," said RAK Ceramics CEO Abdallah Massaad.
