Pump manufacturer Wilo reveals plan to build facilities on 8,000 sq m plot of land in Jebel Ali Free Zone
German pump manufacturer Wilo has plans to build offices, a training centre, warehouses and local assembly plant in Dubai.
The company said in a statement that it will build the facilities on a 8,000 square metre plot of land located in JAFZA South.
Wilo Middle East, which originally opened in Jebel Ali Free Zone in 2008, moved to bigger premises five years ago to accommodate its regional business expansion.
Now, the new facility will include the Wilo Academy, a training centre where distributors, engineers, installers and end users will receive training on its various water technology solutions.
Commenting on the investment, Carsten Krumm, COO of Wilo, said: "By further expanding to a bigger facility by the end of 2017, we believe we can better serve our distributors in the region by offering locally tailored and assembled products and services. The new offices will strengthen Wilo Middle East's position as a regional platform that supports the Gulf and surrounding countries."
In addition to its investment in the UAE, Wilo last year announced the formation of two other subsidiaries in the region, in Egypt and Iran and it now serves 10 countries in the region.
