Schmersal Group opens new branch in Dubai

Specialist in machine safety is heading for markets in the Middle East

Wuppertal, Germany, 30 July 2019. The Schmersal Group is further expanding its global network and, with its new subsidiary "Schmersal Middle East-FZE", is focusing on the economic potential of the markets in the Middle East, a region with around 430 million inhabitants. The company with headquarters in Wuppertal, Germany, is represented with its own corporations and distribution partners in over 60 countries - and now also with its own branch in Dubai. "With the founding of Schmersal Middle East-FZE, we are further expanding our business activities towards the Middle East," says Uwe Seeger, Director of Asia Pacific Middle East at Schmersal Group. "With this step, we are moving a little closer to our local customers, which we see as a great advantage, because we expect great potential from the United Arab Emirates and the countries in the Middle East." The Schmersal Group, a globally recognized specialist in machine safety, not only supplies its customers in the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa) with high-quality safety-related products and systems, but also offers them the comprehensive safety services program of tec.nicum. "Our services division named tec.nicum is a worldwide network with TÜV Rheinland certified Functional Safety Engineers. This means that the services of the international organization tec.nicum can now be easily and conveniently called up in the United Arab Emirates, "says Uwe Seeger.

The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are the most important markets in the Middle East. Upcoming major events in the region such as Expo 2020 in Dubai and FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar have launched numerous construction and infrastructure projects in the region, e.g. airports and ports, facilities for energy and water supply and many hotel buildings. Not least of all, these projects have had a positive impact on demand for machines and plants.
