Danube opens first showroom in Qatar
Doha, July 13, 2011
Danube Building Materials, a leader in construction, building materials and shop fitting industries, has opened its first showroom in Qatar in association with Dyarco International, a major service consultancy.
The Dh50 million ($13.6 million) showroom, Danube’s 29th in the Middle East, was inaugurated by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani, vice-chairman, Al Faisal Holding and Ebrahim A H Al Neama, chairman, Dyarco.
The newly opened Business to Business (B2B) showroom, which measures at 100,000 sq ft, comprises a showroom and adjoining warehouse, located at the heart of Qatar’s Industrial Area.
According to Danube senior officials, the recent announcement of Qatar being named as the host for the FIFA World Cup Games in 2022 has created an influx of construction and infrastructure projects amounting to over Dh367 billion over the next 12 years.
Danube is looking to play a major role in this development by leveraging its wide portfolio of building materials and other construction essentials across these projects. The Qatar showroom will offer key products like wood, steel, sanitary hardware, ceiling, plywood and structural steel.
“We congratulate the Danube group on the occasion of the opening of their first retail and warehousing facility in Qatar,” said Al Thani.
“The opening could not have been at a better time as the country is currently witnessing an increase in major construction projects.”
“These projects largely demand a supplier who can provide them with top quality building materials, something that the Danube Building Materials retail units are widely known for. We wish them success and welcome them as an integral part in the country’s move to prepare for the Fifa World Cup games in 2022,” he added.
Rizwan Sajan, founder and chairman, Danube Building Materials, said: “Today’s opening demonstrates our long standing commitment towards opening key showrooms and warehousing facilities across strategic locations in the Middle East.”
“We are excited to have opened our first retail unit in Qatar as the country is expected to experience a large influx of projects in preparation for the FIFA World Cup games in 2022.”
“We are eyeing to participate in this expected increased number of projects, which complements our goal to expand our client base in Qatar, during this period of important development and growth. Rest assured that we will continue to live up to our reputation as a key provider of world class high quality building materials to major projects in the region,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
