Voestalpine Metsec plc, the UK’s largest specialist cold roll-forming company providing products for the construction and manufacturing industries, has opened a Dubai office as part of its expansion programme in the Middle East.
Having worked in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region for more than a decade on major purlins projects including Abu Dhabi Airport, Nakilat Damen shipyard and the new Warner Brothers Theme Park, the office opening marks the company’s first permanent location in the Middle East and will enable closer relationships with customers working on purlins and side rail projects.
Rob Marsh, commercial and technical manager for Metsec Middle East, said: “Opening a regional office in the Middle East represents an important landmark in Metsec’s ongoing commitment to working in the region and focus on building its business here.
“With our extensive range of light gauge galvanised steel purlins, side rails and mezzanine floor systems, Metsec has a proven track record not only in its quality and design capabilities, but in delivering high profile projects in the GCC, and we’re excited about this next phase of our regional development.”
Thanks to the new permanent site, Metsec is already offering continuous professional development (CPD) sessions to build understanding of the design and specification of purlins, with a representative of Metsec visiting clients to deliver the training.
“For companies looking to increase their staff knowledge of purlins products, the seminars provide a comprehensive and engaging opportunity to fulfil their CPD commitments,” concluded Marsh.
