South Korean machinery and auto parts manufacturer S&T Group has said that it is planning further expansion in the Middle East.

The company has already established a company in Saudi Arabia. S&T Gulf will produce plant equipment such as air-cooled heat exchangers, from a factory at Dammam in the Eastern province.

S&T also manufactures motorcycles and scooters, as well as firearms in South Korea. The company did not disclose any details regarding its expansion plans, but it did invite officials from Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait and Jordan to take a tour of its South Korean operations in early October.
