Danube Building Materials, a leader in construction, building materials and shop fitting industries, has opened its new Dh40 million ($10.9 million), state-of-the-art warehouse in Jafza.
The new warehousing facility, which spans 550,000 sq ft, is just one of the recent expansion initiatives that Danube has implemented to help keep up with the region’s increased demand. Expansion has also gone beyond the region with the opening of key retail facilities in India.
The warehouse also has 10 loading / unloading bays with hydraulic dock levelers. Danube has incorporated a sophisticated and integrated Warehouse Management System (WMS), which deploys wireless hand-held scanners and the latest technology to support Intelligent Operations, used for real time update of data and inventory management.
“Danube remains committed in its efforts to expand through 2012, targeting the opening of 15 more branches. With our plans to create stronger market presence in Qatar, India, and Saudi Arabia, the new warehouse in Jafza will act as a key back up facility to house and store all our products,” stated Rizwan Sajan, chairman, Danube Building Materials.
