Bafco eyes Mideast airport expansions
Dubai, May 20, 2009
Bafco, a leading office interiors and office furniture supplier, is showcasing its products and services at the Airport Show 2009 in a bid to capitalise on the burgeoning growth of the region’s airports.
More than 210 exhibitors from 30 countries are taking part in the ninth edition of the Airport Show, which opened yesterday (May 19) and will run until May 21 at Dubai Airport Expo.
With Dubai International Airport adding another concourse and expecting passenger numbers to reach 60 million by 2021, and a further 160 million passengers scheduled for Maktoum International, Bafco is highlighting its expertise in specialised design and fit-out.
This comes on the back of a Dh11million ($2.98m) contract for the fit-out of office interiors at the new Emirates Terminal 3 at Dubai International. For its timely delivery, Dubai Airports officials presented BAFCO with Supplier of the Year Award 2008.
The Dh16.52 billion terminal houses 2,200 workstations supplied by Bafco plus public area sofas and executive desks. The company sourced office furnishings globally from Italy, Spain and Korea, to finish ahead of the 60-day deadline set by Dubai Airports.
“The recent figures of growth of airports in the region suggest an estimated growth of 400 million passengers,” said Ahmed Syeeduddin, sales and design manager at Bafco.
“With the airport expansion projects here in Dubai as well as Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and across the region, Bafco is well placed to handle these challenging and demanding projects,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
