His Majesty King Abdullah II on Wednesday visited Petra Engineering Industries Company in Muwqqar, one of the leading Jordanian companies specialized in manufacturing heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems that have reached global markets.
During the visit, the King checked on modern technology used by the company, deemed a model for national investments as it provided 2,000 job opportunities for Jordanians in the engineering, administrative and technical fields.
The company's exports to the world stood at $110 million last year.
His Majesty also watched a photo exhibition on the history of the company, its establishment, and its products. He was also briefed by its director on the company's future plans related to expanding its investments in new areas.
King Abdullah also toured a number of production facilities affiliated to the company.
The Petra Engineering Industries Co. was founded in 1987 with a broad vision to produce a wide variety of HVAC equipment that meet a diversity of application requirements and to export to major markets worldwide. The execution of successful corporate and business strategies to this effect took Petra swiftly to great heights and enabled it to begin competing with long-established companies.
