Naffco to double production
Dubai, October 27, 2009
Jafza-based National Fire Fighting Manufacturing (Naffco), the largest fire-fighting equipment manufacturer in the Middle East, will double its production capacity with the launch of a new manufacturing facility.
A specialist in the field of automation and control for fire alarm and security systems, Naffco is expanding its operational capacity with the new one million sq ft central unit in Jafza, which will be fully functional before the end of this year.
The company, with its presence in 78 countries across the world, is fully geared to maintain its lead in providing comprehensive and reliable fire protection solutions and services, said a statement.
Naffco is expected to maintain the previous year’s impressive annual growth in 2009, despite global economic downturns, it said.
It attributes the substantial annual growth the company had achieved in 2008 -- Dh613 million turnover compared to Dh448 million in 2007 -- to its leadership in the manufacture of high-quality fire-fighting equipment as well as diversification in 2007 into the passive fire protection arena.
Established in 1991 in Jafza, Naffco's current 274,000 sq ft facility in the free zone includes Naffco global headquarters, its state-of-the-art manufacturing and storage facility and its regional office.
The company's business is focused on design, manufacturing, supply, installation and maintenance services of products including firefighting equipment and highly sophisticated fire trucks. Almost 75 per cent of its production is being exported to the Middle East, Europe and Africa, it said. – ME Newswire
