Glenbeigh opens DWC facility
Dubai, January 9, 2014
Glenbeigh Records Management, an Ireland-based offsite storage facility, has officially opened its Dh25 million ($6.8 million) facility at Dubai World Central (DWC), the world’s first purpose-built aerotropolis.
It was inaugurated in the presence of Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation, and the Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who is visiting the UAE as part of a trade mission to the Middle East.
Sheikh Ahmed said: “The UAE and Ireland have excellent business relations and what makes our partnership with Glenbeigh even more significant is that it represents a decisive step towards strengthening business and economic ties with Ireland as a whole. We aim to encourage more Irish enterprises to discover the wealth of opportunities that await them in DWC, Dubai and the UAE.”
The 70,000 sq ft facility offers storage solutions and advanced security systems guaranteed to protect corporate information assets.
Philip Earle, founder and chairman, Glenbeigh Group, said: “We are very pleased to continue our international growth with the official launch of our Dubai operations.”
“We expect to see significant growth in revenue over the next few years, enabling the company to create jobs for the local Emirati population, as well as generate an anticipated 25 jobs in Ireland as a result of our Middle East expansion. We have already been able to hire a number of new Irish employees across the wider Glenbeigh Group who have been involved in the design and construction of the DWC facility,” he added.
