Bahrain switchgear firm mulls Qatar expansion
Manama, February 6, 2014
Bahrain-based Haji Ali Haji is planning to expand its switchgear business and its horizons by exploring the Qatar market, where it has already established an office.
Through its participation at the Gulf Industry Fair, the company aims to strengthen its customer base in Bahrain and establish new contacts with companies in the Gulf region, said group general manager Dr Adel Dairi.
Haji Ali Haji is a wholesale business entity in Bahrain and has been in operation for 75 years. The company, whose main business is trading, has three main divisions – electrical materials, building materials and home appliances. It also has a service centre, Smartech, in addition to the switchgear product segment.
The company specialises in the manufacture and assembly of low voltage (LV) panels and heavy-, medium- and light-duty cable trays, said Dr Dairi.
As the sole agent of Hyundai switchgear products, the company provides customised distribution boards and panels and manufactures its own cable trays and trunking, he added.
“The customised cable trays are available in different sizes to suit customer demand,” explained Hashir Ahammad, the assistant manager – sales and marketing – switchgear factory division.
The company also offers electrical telecommunications products that are ‘competitively priced”.
Haji Ali Haji is currently playing a key role in a number of Ministry of Housing projects in Bahrain.
It is also close to completing projects such as some KFC and Hardees outlets across the country. Its upcoming projects include Baisan Hotel on Amwaj Islands.-TradeArabia News Service
