Dubal wins 'best exporter' award at Mela
Dubai, July 7, 2009
Dubai Aluminium Company Limited (Dubal), the largest modern smelter with a captive power station, received the 2009 'Best Exporter Award' in the Shippers category at the thirrd Annual Middle East Logistics Awards (Mela 2009) held recently.
The accolade, presented at a recent gala event, recognises the aluminium giant’s outstanding contribution to the logistics industry in the region through its large scale shipping activities.
According to the organisers, Mela benchmarks and celebrates performance excellence in the Middle East logistics industry and recognises the top performers for their achievements.
The annual Mela winners are determined by the Middle East community in a decision-making two-stage process of nominating and voting for their choice of companies or individuals, based in and operating in the Middle East Region, that have set new benchmarks in the industry.
Sultan Al Sabri, senior manager, Marketing & Sales (Europe & North America), who received the award on behalf of Dubal, said, it was a fitting tribute to the role Dubal played in the regional economy as a major importer of raw materials and exporter of finished products.
"It also reflects the inherent value in the long-term partnerships we nurture with all our stakeholders – from our suppliers and customers through to our employees and the community; and our commitment to excellence in all that we do."
“Indeed, our business is built on the belief that our success is interdependent on that of our stakeholders. It’s an approach that has provided a solid foundation for our continued growth over the past 30 years since our inception in 1979; and an approach that we will continue to pursue for the foreseeable future,” Al Sabri added.-TradeArabia News Service
