The Wilo Group has officially opened its new facility in Jafza (Jebel Ali Free Zone), Dubai.
In addition to office space, showrooms and a logistics centre, the new 8000 sq m Wilo complex will also feature dedicated training rooms and its own assembly line.
“With the opening of our first office in Dubai in 2008, we laid the groundwork for successful developments in the Near and Middle East. This new building and its functional expansion accounts for the strategic significance of this central location within the region,” said Oliver Hermes, chairman and CEO of Wilo Group.
“Since the founding of our first office about ten years ago, we have become a major supplier of pumps and pump system solutions in local markets,” said Georg Weber, chief technology officer of the Wilo Group. “In the future, we will be able to better and more efficiently serve the needs of our customers and partners in the region by fulfilling local market requirements with tailored products, solutions, and services.”
The Dubai office serves as a regional platform for countries in the Near and Middle East and in North Africa.
“With this central hub, we can further expand our bilateral cooperation with partners from the United Arab Emirates and the Near and Middle East in line with our intensified globalisation strategy,” said Hermes, who is also chairman of the German Near and Middle East Association (NUMOV).
The new Wilo building is among the most energy-efficient buildings in its class in Dubai and was certified in accordance with LEED Gold.
