Arpal Gulf

The Arpal brand has been visible in the Middle East for over 35 years. 

Dubai ManThe company's long term relationship with the Middle East began in 1977, when we were exhibiting in London, and a chance meeting with a visitor from Saudi Arabia led to the then Chairman, Geoff Adam, reaching an  agreement for the import of Arpal branded chemicals into the Kingdom.

Having been the first Western company to sell cleaning and hygiene products into Saudi Arabia in 1977, the company decided to set up its own operation there in 1979, with the support and sponsorship of HRH Price Mohammed Al Faisal Al Saud.  In 1983, the company was recognised as an outstanding ambassador for UK business abroad, when it was awarded the Queens Award for Export Achievement. As the business flourished, so did the economic and social development of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and it was inevitable that the importation of foreign goods would be discouraged in favour of local manufacturing. In 1987, a deal was done with one of Saudi’s foremost trading families to manufacture and sell Arpal products under licence in Saudi Arabia and we are proud to say that, after after more than 30 years, our manufacturing and trading agreement is still going strong.

In the early 1990s we took our first steps into the Gulf and, seeing the huge potential in the region, set up Arpal Gulf LLC in 1996.

Since then, Arpal Gulf LLC has steadily grown in parallel with the spectacular development of the Emirates as a whole, servicing an ever maturing market across all sectors, from leisure to industry and hospitality to health. With a central hub in Dubai, a brand new GMP accredited manufacturing facility, an office in Abu Dhabi and a network of distributors throughout the region, the company is ideally placed to service the needs of its clients and develop new opportunities throughout the Middle East and beyond.

The UAE is one of the few economies in the world where private sector growth is accelerating rather than losing pace, and the ideal location for an ambitious company to invest. Now with a multi-lingual, multi-talented workforce of over thirty people, Arpal Gulf continues to invest in the talent and resources required to exceed the expectations of a demanding and sophisticated marketplace.

In UAE we believe in doing the job right first time every time, using our own engineers and field service personnel rather than contractor services, thus ensuring that we deliver our quality promises every day. As in the UK, when customers buy Arpal “Blue Box” products, they are buying quality, value and reliability.

Whether in UK or abroad, the Arpal Gulf doesn't just sell chemicals; it goes much further than that - we deliver clean plates, clean linen and hygienically clean surfaces within a framework of a robust and dependable service and support package.
