KBEC to compete in UAE market
Klampfer Middle East and Brayan Group have formed a partnership enterprise to service the UAE's mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) sector.
Klampfer-Brayan Electromechanical Contracting (KBEC) was conceptualised by Klampfer Middle East managing director, Günther Hinterberger, and Brayan Group CEO Praveen Sarapure.
Hinterberger said: “As a European company with an international engineering portfolio, Klampfer is moving toward increasing and diversifying our Middle East market share beginning with the United Arab Emirates. Our partnership with Brayan Group serves to both solidify our local footprint, and leverages the company’s on-the-ground years of MEP experience.”
Sarapure said: “The merging of our two interests to create KBEC also brings considerable financial support to MEP execution in the UAE. This allows for a focus on strengths - not just of our respective solid reputations and different levels of geographic penetration - but on recruiting top level human capital to service KBEC clients for work needs.
“To further enhance the Klampfer-Brayan advantage, Eng. Joe Szabo, a sector veteran with more than 15 years of senior-level appointments across MEP and various other construction sector disciplines, has been confirmed as the operation’s director. We’re confident that his management expertise together with his hard knowledge of the field will ensure timely and cost-effective solutions for the Klampfer-Brayan client base."
