UAE base “an absolute must” says refrigeration rental firm
Belfast/Dubai, October 10, 2012: Saying that an office in the UAE is now vital for any business wanting to maintain a truly international presence, Lowe Refrigeration, a UK-based short-term refrigeration rental company, has announced that it will open its new Dubai office on October 24. It reported that the level of demand from companies based or working in Dubai made opening the new office an easy decision.
Mark Wood, Lowe’s General Manager in the Middle East, said: “We’ve worked in Dubai and the Middle East for many years as the official refrigeration contractor to major food exhibitions and events. But with Dubai’s exhibitions, events and corporate hospitality industries going from strength-to-strength, it’s now an absolute must for us to have a permanent base here. The sheer number of requests that we’re getting from people in Dubai wanting our services meant that transporting fridges as and when they were needed was no longer practical.”
According to Lowe, the new office will develop the work the company was already doing in Dubai’s exhibition sector, while also providing refrigeration hire and storage solutions to hotels, retailers and events in the Gulf region. It previously shipped refrigeration equipment to Dubai from its distribution centres in Europe and Singapore, and an increased demand for its services prompted the decision to open a Dubai office, it added.
Lowe, which has its headquarters in Northern Ireland, claimed that it has been renting fridges to clients around the world for more than 30 years, including supplying refrigeration to the London 2012 Olympic Games, Formula 1 races and major golf tournaments.
