Construction of the US$90 million biscuit manufacturing plant of US-based food giant Mondelēz International is in full swing with Mercury Middle East WLL (Mercury MENA) spearheading the development as the project’s general contractor.

Mondelēz International facility is one of the key capital projects of Mercury MENA slated for completion along with a roster of major blueprints expected to roll out in 2016. The company has provided excellent engineering services in Turnkey Construction, Mechanical, Electrical, HVAC, Life Safety, Facility Management and Interior Fit-Outs to blue chip clients across all sectors throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

The world-class manufacturing facility is designed and engineered as a multi-category plant that can handle large-scale production through technology-enabled and state-of-the-art components, in strict compliance with the specifications of Mondelēz International manufacturing plants worldwide. The factory will produce on its first phase, six different biscuit categories with a capacity of 90,000 tons, which is nine times the weight of the Eiffel Tower with the possibility for the future to add more production lines. Upon completion of the project, its products will be exported to more countries, generate increased supply, and reach more consumers across the globe.

Mr. Dmitry Shachenok, Project Director of Mondelez Bahrain Biscuits WLL said, “Accelerated construction activities are fast underway in the project’s strategic location at the Bahrain International Investment Park in Salman Industrial City.
