Trelleborg relocates its marine and infrastructure headquarters and Dubai office to accommodate growth
Aug 21, 2019
By Richard Hepworth, President at Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation
Paving the way for an ever-expanding team, in addition to a greater local presence and expertise, Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation has relocated its headquarters and Dubai marine fender sales operation to a larger office in Dubai.
This means that we can handle increased customer and project demands even better. As such, the move to Jafza One, a new, premium commercial complex in the heart of Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai in the UAE, is an important part in the next chapter of our business development.
The move follows the formation in quarter one 2019 of Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation, formerly Trelleborg Marine Systems. In addition to its marine solutions, the operation has widened its remit to include Trelleborg’s infrastructure operation as well as its Qingdao-based sales office and manufacturing facility, which manufactures marine fenders, docking and mooring equipment, and advanced polymer solutions for railways, bridges, tunnels, buildings and power plants. As a result, we have expanded our team at the Dubai office, with two new additions to the management team and three appointments to the marine fender sales team.
Ideally located alongside the region’s largest deep sea port of Jebel Ali, Jafza One is Jafza’s flagship commercial property and brings together businesses from all around the globe. It provides access to new business opportunities as a maritime hub both regionally and globally, thanks to Dubai’s centralized time zone that combines East and West. The complex comprises a 34-storey twin office tower and will be home to a 322-room luxury four-star hotel, a 600-seat auditorium, 22 meeting and conference rooms and a 1,500 square meter exhibition hall, once complete.
