High-pressure pump provider GD Energy Products (GDEP) has opened a new international sales facility in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The new sales facility is located in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone and has adjacent distribution facilities for the Eastern Hemisphere (Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa regions). Sales, customer service, technical support, field service and operations will all operate from the new facility.
The 170 m2 of new office space has a dedicated training centre which will provide a home for customer training and product experiences, as well as GDEP’s Pump University, a mobile classroom that travels to a customer’s facility and trains employees how to properly maintain pumping equipment.
“The UAE, and Jebel Ali Free Zone in particular, provide a strategic location with excellent transportation links in a convenient time zone to best serve our Eastern Hemisphere customers,” said Riaz Jumabhoy, GDEP’s general manager and director, international sales. “The facility enables us to support key business regions such as the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), North Africa, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).”
