Will include a dedicated fire protection products training facility
Tyco, which deals in fire protection products, has announced opening of a new office in Dubai, integrating four of its divisions – Fire Protection Products, Safety Products, Fire & Integrated Solutions and Retail Solutions.
According to Tyco, its expansion plans in the Middle East also include a new dedicated Tyco Fire Protection Products training facility. Part of Tyco’s new office in Dubai, the TechXchange training centre will offer customers and distributors access to hands-on training and product demonstrations, as well as training seminars on system design and installation across the fire protection product range, the company explained. The new training centre, said Tyco, is scheduled to open later in 2013, and will follow on from other successful TechXchange centre launches in Sweden and the UK.
“This is an important step for Tyco in supporting our key markets and territories in the Middle East,” commented Phil McCowen, General Manager, Tyco Middle East. “Expanding our presence enables us to bring together several parts of the Tyco business and enable our customers to benefit from closer collaboration and integrated solutions. We’re seeing continued demand for high quality fire protection, detection, security and life safety products, supported by leading technical expertise and an understanding of the local market, and this investment demonstrates our continued commitment to the region.”
