Local firms scoop tool awards

Large manufacturer launches new range and rewards the best dealers from around the UAE.

Power tool manufacturer Hitachi-Koki treated its UAE-based dealers to dinner in the Madinat Jumeriah in January, to celebrate the launch of the company's revised drill, battery and saw line up.

In addition to quality food, entertainment was provided courtesy of a classical band and a laser show. However, it was the awards for the best dealers that most of the delegates had been waiting for.

The best dealer in Dubai was declared as Mr. Gafoor, of Fine Tools Co., while the same award for Abu Dhabi and Al Ain went to Mohammed Fateh Ali Al Khaja at Al Jawal Technical and Trading Services. Meanwhile, Qaid Johar and the staff at Midland Hardware took the trophy for Sharjah and the northern emirates.

Meanwhile, a special award for the most prolific Middle East distributor was presented by Mr. Okano, General Manager of Hitachi-Koki, to Iibrahim Al Khaja, Vice Chairman, Al Kharja and Sons Group. Later, Ibrahim commented growth in the region "My future is in Abu Dhabi" he said, while indicating that demand for power tools across the Gulf shows no sign of abating.

The awards were supported by UAE-based Commercial Tyre Cenre and Delma Industrial Supply.
