Excellent first year for James Walker operation in Dubai
Although James Walker has been selling into the Middle East for at least 20 years, as our range of products and services has grown, it has become essential to offer a coordinated approach to serving this important region. As a result, James Walker Middle East FZE was launched in Dubai last year.
With sales in the region recently doubling, we felt that this was the right time to put people on the ground to expand our capabilities and service our growing customer base.
"With our ranges of gaskets, compression packings, expansion joints and elastomeric seals we service all the key sectors including oil and gas, power and the metallurgical industry supplying OEM, end-user and MRO customers around the globe with class-leading solutions." Comments International Sales Director - EMEA, Haitham Zoorob, adding;
"We also lead the way in areas such as flange management and bolting solutions plus component weight-saving and performance improvement through the use of engineered thermoplastics – two areas of operation that take our business into applications as diverse as railways, cranes and chemical processing."
Karel Kraan, James Walker’s sales area manager for the Middle East has seen the business in the region take a major step forward; "Having our own team on the ground in the region puts us much closer to our customers in both geographical and cultural terms - essential for providing the service levels to which we aspire and for offering true global coverage to our major international clients.
I know everyone within the James Walker worldwide business is very excited by the progress that has been made with this move and are putting their full support behind helping us provide the quality of products and services demanded by industry throughout the Middle East."
