DUBAI: Airedale International, has now officially opened its gateway to the Middle East following a launch event at its Dubai Airport Freezone office last week.

The event follows on from the opening of the British precision air conditioning and industrial cooling systems manufacturer’s base in Moscow last year.

More than 40 key customers and international business partners from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and further afield attended the event, and were joined by Karen Williams, deputy director of UK Trade & Investment at the British Embassy Dubai.

With the 2022 World Cup to be held in Qatar, and Dubai named as the venue for the 2020 World Expo, the third largest global event, anticipated spending on infrastructure of around US$150bn over the coming years is expected to kick start an era of significant economic growth in the Middle East region. In addition to substantial expansion of infrastructure to cope with the forthcoming events, a recent report by IT giant Cisco predicts Middle East and Africa area mobile data traffic will reach 1.49 exabytes per month by 2018, fuelled by the increasing uptake of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.

Airedale md, Clive Parkman, who opened the day’s events, said: “The significant investment that the region will see over the next few years will have a very positive impact on Airedale’s business, as we are called on to design and supply cooling systems to support data centre, communications and other infrastructure needs as the region scales up to meet increasing demand.”

“The timing is perfect and will play a major role in helping us achieve our significant growth plans and cement our position within the global marketplace” Clive continues. “British engineering expertise is always well received, and Airedale has a tremendous pedigree in developing innovative technology solutions for the global marketplace.”
