Airedale gains ME storage and test facility

29042010877SAUDI ARABIA: Saudi Temco, a local partner of UK cooling systems manufacturer Airedale, has opened a new storage and testing facility in Riyadh.

The new plant will allow extensive stocks of Airedale EasiCool and SmartCool precision air conditioning systems and will provide Saudi Temco with end-of-line and customer witness testing capabilities.

Airedale commercial director, Mark Viner, said: “Their new facility represents another significant step forward in our growth plans, bringing fully configured systems closer to the market and providing customers with high performance precision products on much shorter lead times.”

The opening of its branch office in the Dubai Airport Freezone in February 2014 has seen Airedale consolidate its position in the Middle East with a large number of high profile projects now underway in the region including the Dubai International Airport expansion and Riyadh’s King Abdullah Financial District project, along with early stage design work carried out on many other significant projects that are yet to begin.

Airedale says that the Saudi facility will form the blueprint for Airedale’s expansion plans throughout the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries in the next three to five years.
