Mekar, a central air conditioning company, has announced that it has opened its own dedicated sales and service centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and will soon be opening similar offices in Qatar and Abu Dhabi. Aliseo Group, the Italian company, which owns Mekar, has said that it has recently appointed Royal Gulf, which was part of the regional conglomerate, Koohiji Group, as its distributor in the UAE.

According to the announcement, Royal Gulf will now be selling various HVAC products like chillers, ventilation fans, insulation materials, cooling towers and filters in all the GCC countries.

In this context, Francesco Boaro, President, Aliseo Group, said: “The objective and efforts behind making further investments in the GCC region is based on the perception that the long-term outlook for the construction industry in this region is positive, and likely to remain so in the future. The recent acquisition of Royal Gulf will enable the Aliseo Group to spread its sales network across the GCC countries and bring an array of high-quality HVAC products and solutions from Italy.”

Arun Tuli, Managing Director of Mekar and Royal Gulf, added: “Now customers can buy Mekar products directly from Mekar rather than dealing through distributors. This not only provides price competitiveness, but also gives confidence to the customer about after-sales services and warranties directly from the manufacturers.”

Tuli further said that the company has expanded its product offerings with the introduction of a new range of Eurovent- certified AHUs, hygienic AHUs and green fan coil units.

Mekar claims that it has supplied air conditioning products to many of the region’s iconic properties, including Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa and the Yas Marina hotel in Abu Dhabi, among others in the Middle East.
