Dron & Dickson unit boosts ME presence
Abu Dhabi, June 20, 2013
Totus Energy, a subsidiary of Dron & Dickson, a major provider of lighting design services for offshore accommodation modules in the Middle East region, has annouced expansion of its new office.
Totus is an electrical and instrumentation contractor specialising in the provision of project services for the oil and gas and marine and industrial sectors.
Since its acquisition by Dron & Dickson in October 2012, Totus Energy has seen its staffing levels grow by almost 25 per cent. With plans for continued recruitment and ongoing expansion the new premises will allow Totus Energy to undertake larger contracts and operate multiple teams.
With this move, Totus will have a warehouse complex almost double the size of its previous premises.
The office and warehouse expansion will facilitate the introduction of new capabilities including an electrical assembly division and competency training. The newly acquired warehouse space will house hazardous area electrical products, allowing Totus Energy to take full advantage of its prime location in Abu Dhabi.
Stuart Bell, managing director of Totus Energy, said: "This is an incredibly important move for the company, as it places Totus Energy in a position to move forward with increased business as well as a new corporate image. The new office and warehouse puts us in a setting that displays our professionalism as well as our continued commitment to the region."
“The office and warehouse move allows us to expand our brand and capabilities. This will put us in a position to take on more challenging jobs with increased manpower. We look forward to welcoming clients and business partners to our new location,” he added.
Colin Maver, group director of Dron & Dickson, said: "When we acquired Totus Energy last year, we knew the company had a lot of potential and the ability to offer exemplary service to both new and existing customers."
"This expansion will elevate the company to a whole new level, facilitating continued growth and long-term prosperity," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
