Aldes eyes 8pc growth in GCC
Dubai, April 21, 2013
Sharjah-based Aldes Middle East, a leading solutions provider for fire protection, ventilation and air distribution systems, aims to achieve an eight per cent year-on-year growth across the GCC region by year end, said a top official.
As part of its new strategy, the local arm of Aldes Group plans to expand and leverage its expertise in fire protection, ventilation and air distribution across the Gulf region, particularly in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, the UAE and Oman.
The company is set to outdo the company’s seven per cent YoY growth achieved last year, remarked Gaëtan Pierrefeu, the managing director, Aldes Middle East.
“We are looking at an exciting year ahead of us, strengthened by our move to reach out into newer markets, launch of new products and participation in some of the GCC region’s major development projects,” remarked Pierrefeu.
“We are extremely positive of reeling in an eight per cent YoY growth for this year, which we are sure to achieve by capitalizing on our three main activities—fire protection, air distribution and ventilation,” he added.
According to him, Aldes ME’s confidence in maintaining continuous growth is reinforced by its ability to quickly react to major trends in the market and by expanding to new areas of growth within the region.
Apart from its regional headquarters and main factory inside the Sharjah International Airport Free Zone, Aldes will soon be opening its Qatari subsidiary in capital Doha.
The company is also working closely with its partner Mimar in a move to reinforce its current sales force in Saudi Arabia, said Pierrefeu.
"Aldes ME will soon be launching a new VAV design for better air regulation and energy savings. Last year, thre company introduced the twisted diffuser, which offers high technical performance and a unique aesthetical design," he noted.
Over the last few years, Aldes ME has been involved with some of the most prestigious projects in the UAE like Ferrari World, Madinat Jumeirah, the New Doha International Airport in Qatar, the Qatar National Museum. Dubai’s Airport Terminal 2 and the Oasis Hospital in Al Ain, stated Pierrefeu.
Its major customers include top brands from the UAE (Voltas and ETA); Qatar (Cummins, Samko, Mercury, QUMG) and Bahrain (Bu Kamal), he added.-TradeArabia News Service
