Tamer Abu Hamdieh, Senior Manager – MEP and Contracts

Last year was a busy time for the UAE-based company which has been in operation for 40 years. MEP head, Tamer Abu Hamdieh, says revenue was around $122.5m in 2015. Hamdieh expects to achieve roughly the same figure this year based on current work in hand.

“I’m very optimistic about the long-term prospects of the market. You have events coming up like Dubai Expo 2020 and the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar which will move the market,” he says.

“At the moment the UAE remains our home in terms of geographical reach, and we’re in no rush to expand into other territories.”

Hamdieh says he plans to boost the mechanical department staff from 700 to 1,000 within the next two to three years as the company continues to branch out from only offering electrical services.

“Some of our clients were very keen for us to add mechanical and plumbing to our offering because they liked our electrical work,” he says. “It really made us think about expanding our services as Dubai is a big market. So we took around four years studying how to make the department.”
