Napco National Story

Our story starts in 1956 in the heart of the Arabian Gulf, where Georges N. Frem partnered with a like-minded businessman, Abdul Rahman Al-Moaibed, and embarked on a journey that launched National Paper Products Company in Dammam. Our story has evolved into a six-decade long heritage of expertise in manufacturing, entrepreneurship excellence, and a sense of responsibility towards the community.

Napco National today is headquartered in Dammam, with nine legal branches and 15 manufacturing facilities. We’ve grown to become a leading manufacturer in Saudi Arabia employing over 5,200 people in Dammam, Jeddah and Riyadh.
