Abu Dhabi’s airport tower and more than 40 high-rise buildings in Riyadh’s new financial district are protected from fires by Siderise’s materials, which are made at its base in South Wales. It also has a factory in Ipswich, which exports soundproofing insulation. A construction boom and a tightening of building regulations in the Middle East helped exports to £1.8m in 2015. Chief executive Tony James, 57, is sizing up future markets in India, Singapore and Malaysia.
