Following six years of successful trading in the Middle East, Scolmore Group has announced the opening of a new head office and warehouse facility in Dubai.
This development will strengthen Scolmore’s position as a supplier of UK-made wiring accessories and lighting products and allow the company to significantly expand its business across the growing Middle East market.
The new office of Scolmore International Electrical Trading (Scolmore Dubai) is located in the heart of Dubai in the Business Bay area. Headed up by Tim Piggott, sales director, Middle East, the new company will also employ a number of sales managers, as well as office and admin support staff.
The warehouse facility of Scolmore Dubai, operating as Scolmore International Middle East Free Zone Establishment (FZE) is located about 10 miles outside of Dubai in the Free Zone area.
From this prime location, Scolmore Dubai will be able to stock and distribute its comprehensive range of products more quickly to its customers, which include major distributors, construction clients, hotels and smaller end users.
Tim Piggott commented, “We have already had considerable success to date with our UK-manufactured range of products in the countries we trade with across the Middle East – Oman, Bahrain, UAE including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Kuwait.”
“However, we expect to significantly increase our business across this region over the next two or three years. This new dedicated warehouse facility will allow us to dramatically cut down on the time it takes to get products out to our customers.”
“With the ability to hold and distribute high stock levels, we will be in a position to fulfil the requirements of a growing customer base.”
In addition to products from across Scolmore’s range of wiring accessories, a new range manufactured at the Sangamo factory in Scotland has been designed specifically for the Middle East market.
The Click Seera range is a comprehensive collection of wiring accessories manufactured from Polycarbonate. It has been developed to meet the demand – predominately in the Middle-East – for a competitive, cost-effective range that offers all the style and quality of Scolmore’s Mode range, but at a more competitive price point.
Scolmore Dubai will also supply products from across Scolmore’s extensive lighting range, including all the Inceptor integrated downlights, as well as emergency lighting solutions from group company, ESP.
Scolmore Dubai will be exhibiting at the forthcoming MEE Exhibition in March 2019, where it will be showcasing products and solutions from across its portfolio of wiring accessories and lighting ranges.
