Leading UK cable management manufacturer Marshall-Tufflex
will be showcasing its range of Conduit and fittings plus Mini and Maxi trunking profiles at Middle East Electricity exhibition (February 7-9th, Dubai International Exhibition Centre). The stand will be situated within the British Pavilion in Hall 6.
There will be an extra buzz around the stand given that Marshall-Tufflex
has re-affirmed its commitment to Middle Eastern markets by investing in a new factory in Industrial City Abu Dhabi
(ICAD). Its opening has created a number of new jobs, with more expected when 24-hour operation is introduced, improved technical support/customer service and access to a large stock holding.
Managing Director Jim Fletcher, who will be attending MEE, explained that the move was a ‘key strategic investment’ for the company: “The Middle East has always been a successful and important market for us and the Marshall-Tufflex
brand is very strong. Our new factory will enable us to better support our customers in the region. It is a very positive and exciting time for Marshall-Tufflex
and we’re looking forward to seeing customers old and new at MEE to bring them up-to-date with our developments.”
The factory will serve solely the Gulf market and has been developed as a joint venture in conjunction with Trizac Abu Dhabi
, a company primarily associated with distributing pumping systems to the oil and gas industry in the Gulf and North America. Trizac was looking for a partner to work with in what is termed ‘Plastic City’ – an area within ICAD set aside by the Abu Dhabi
government to develop manufacturing facilities for downstream oil-based products. Bashar Anabtawi, General Manager of the new venture, will also be on stand at MEE.
The factory will predominantly target the GCC states of UAE, Oman, Qatar
, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait
. However as the operation progresses it will look to service the needs of other Middle Eastern markets such as Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon.
has supplied cable management systems for commercial, healthcare, education and industrial environments in the Gulf for more than 30 years. As well as Conduit and Mini/Maxi trunking, its range includes PVC-U, steel and aluminium trunking, GRP and Underfloor to Desk solutions.
