Napco National Story

Our story started in 1956 in the heart of the Arabian Peninsula, where Saudi businessman Abdul Rahman Al-Moaibed partnered with like-minded Lebanese businessman Georges N. Frem and embarked on a journey that founded National Paper Products Company in Dammam, under the Investment license Number 12. This number marks our company’s legacy and our unique contribution to the industrial sector in Saudi Arabia.

Today, Napco National employs over 5,000 people across Saudi Arabia and the rest of the GCC, and has grown into becoming a leading manufacturer of plastic raw materials, flexible packaging, paper containers and consumer products, distributed over 15 industrial branches in addition to a branch dedicated to trading and distribution.
