Ecobarrier - Foundations

Foundations

The foundations of the Ecobarrier brand can be traced back to the company founder Lachlan Jackson, who identified a gap in the market for high quality, durable marine barriers available in the GCC. 

Lachlan’s marine and coastal protection contracting company, Ecocoast Contracting LLC, was resorting to procuring marine barriers for their construction projects from overseas. Not only did this result in long delivery times and increased cost, but the barriers also did not stand-up to the quality or performance standards required. Customisation was not an option either. This led Ecocoast to start manufacturing marine barriers for use on their own projects. Contractors are not known for their delicate nature, so the barriers needed to be robust, easy to handle and install, and perform as required to ensure no downtime onsite.  

Following years of in-house testing, and a growing demand for high strength marine barriers globally, the Ecobarrier brand was officially born. Initially focused on contractor barriers, such as silt curtains and debris barriers, the range later diversified to include marine and coastal protection barriers. 

A decade later, Ecobarrier manufactures the largest range of marine barriers in the EMEA region across a range of sectors, and was responsible for introducing the strongest silt curtain to the global market in 2014. Today, our growth continues, as we expand into new geographies, new product areas and even new industry sectors.
