New Zamzam bottling plant to be ready early next year


The Unified Office of Zamzama, suppliers of Zamzam water, signed a SR 20 million contract with the Water Technology Company (WTC) to build a Zamzam bottling plant in Makkah.

Sulaiman Abu Gheelah, chairman of Zamzama said construction would begin on a new 10,000 sq meter bottling plant to replace the existing factory in the Al-Rusaifah district of Makkah.

Abdullah Baqatadah, WTC Deputy Chairman, said the company would continue to bottle natural water throughout the year, except during Haj season when it will switch to bottling Zamzam. “The new plant will be ready early next year and will be equipped with the latest in water purification technology. It will have a capacity to run two production lines and output 4,000 five-gallon packages and 12,000 bottles an hour,” he said.

The 15-year contract includes delivery and distribution of Zamzam during the Haj season to pilgrims in more than 6,000 housing units.
