Indian business group Dubai Horizon International (DHI), which has already invested BD2 million ($5.3 million) in Bahrain, has opened a new BD250,000 division in Tubli.
The company's new wholesale electro-mechanical building materials division was opened by Soman Baby, associate editor of Gulf Daily News, our sister newspaper.
About 200 people, including Marjan Water Tanks chairman and managing director Hassan Yousuf Al Muhaideb, company chairman and managing director A M Ameen, executive director A M Aman and general manager M M Rafi attended the opening ceremony.
'Our group, which has its corporate operation at Jebel Ali Free Zone, opened the first unit in Bahrain in 2003,' said Ameen.
'Since then we have opened seven showrooms and three warehouses in different parts of Bahrain at a total investment of BD2 million.
'We deal mainly in water tanks and garage doors. We have warehouses in Isa Town and Khamis, where we have stocks worth more than BD1 million for Durrat Al Bahrain and Riffa Views.'
Aman said despite the global recession, DHI has decided to go ahead with its projects in Bahrain.
'We have full confidence in the Bahrain market, and we are grateful to the Bahrain government for the support we have been receiving all these years,' he said.
'We have pioneered in the field of products and services for storage solutions for water, which is the base of every living being on this land surface.
