Asry offers key support to Gulf Industry Fair
Manama, February 4, 2014
Asry, the leading ship and rig repair yard in the Arabian Gulf, has announced strategic support for the Gulf Industry Fair (GIF) 2014 that opens in Bahrain today.
Asry is supporting the Ports and Maritime Zone at the fair, widely considered the leading business-to-business industrial trade show of its kind in the Northern Gulf.
"The strategic support of a maritime company of Asry's global stature and pedigree is integral to our goal of raising the profile of the fair's Ports and Maritime Zone," the show organiser, Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions (HCE) managing director Jubran Abdulrahman, said.
"Asry's involvement will highlight the capacities, capabilities and competitive advantages of Bahrain and the GCC for ship repair and maritime industries, and the importance of the sector to regional economies," he added.
Asry acting chief executive Nils Kristian Berge said the Gulf Industry Fair had traditionally and consistently provided an excellent platform to not only promote the company's services, but also demonstrate its support for the kingdom's industrial sector.
"This year our strategic support for the fair will place greater emphasis on the potential of the region's maritime sector, and Asry's leadership position thereof," he said.
The yard has been at the forefront of the ship and offshore rig repair market for more than 35 years, and is the undisputed regional hub for marine expertise delivered through its four divisions: ship repair services, offshore services, consultancy services, and energy services.
Headquartered in Bahrain, Asry's facilities and capabilities are world-class: a 500,000dwt dry dock; two floating docks 252 metre and 227m long respectively; 15 repair berths approximately 4,000m long in total; twin 255m slipways, as well as a full range of workshops and service centres.-TradeArabia News Service
