Date: 14th September 2018 | Posted by: Airedale Team | Posted in: Blog
Airedale's UAE office which was established in 2014 has recently moved, so we thought we would take this opportunity to share some information on the new space, along with some details of the great projects that Nissar Rahman and Jamshad Padanchery, our Middle East Sales Engineers, have worked on with Head of Export Sales Asim Ansari's support.
The office is located on the 8th floor of DAFZA, the Dubai Airport Free Zone Authority, one of the ‘most prestigious and advanced free zones in Dubai.'
This move represents a larger 48m2 space with a dedicated meeting area for customers, and enables expansion in terms of number of heads, so 6 people can now work from this office. The team are in the process of onboarding a Mechanical Graduate, who will be an internally based Applications Support Engineer. This will enable Nissar and Jamshad to spend more customer facing time, developing new contacts and working with consultants to specify Airedale products.
