Emirates Building Systems on hiring spree
Dubai, January 17, 2010
Emirates Building Systems (EBS), a subsidiary of Dubai Investments Industries (DII), has hired 150 new employees to meet increased manpower requirements resulting from the expansion of its UAE and overseas operations.
A regional pioneer in construction of high-rise steel buildings, EBS has clinched a string of prestigious projects in recent months, including the Tripoli airport project in Libya, the Petrofac-Adco project in Abu Dhabi, and the CPECC crude oil pipeline project in Abu Dhabi.
The new recruits will be deployed across these projects as well as in Saudi Arabia, where the company is establishing sales offices, said a senior official.
“The recruitment program aims to meet the needs of our rapid growth,” said Samir Akra, EBS general manager.
“EBS has been going strong despite the market downturn, and has been steadily expanding its operations with new project wins in the UAE and abroad. The new recruitment will allow us to effectively meet our operational requirements and growth demands,” he noted.
“EBS has built a reputation as a leading manufacturer of high-quality steel structures, and today our portfolio includes some of the most prestigious steel structure projects in the region,” Akra added.
The new employees have been recruited for a variety of positions such as welders, steel fabricators, Quality Assurance/Quality Control inspectors, estimation engineers, and sales engineers.
Established in 1997, EBS currently has a production capacity over 75,000 metric tones per annum. The company has also plans for setting up additional fabrication facilities in the GCC and the Indian subcontinent.-TradeArabia News Service
