Trans Gulf officially opens new head office
Trans Gulf opens new DIP head office, complete with prefab facility
MEP contractor Trans Gulf Electro Mechanical LLC has officially opened its new dedicated 7,000m2 premises in Dubai Investment Park. The design and supervision of the new facility was overseen by M/s Arch Corp Consultants.
“The aim was to have all our project support services centralised under one roof. Also, the accessibility to the rest of the emirates provided by the location was a major factor in the move to the new premises,” said GM Sekhar Reddy.
A feature of the new premises is a fully functional prefabrication facility, which became operational in February, and which will supply all Trans Gulf’s project requirements. Reddy comments that while prefabrication requires extensive coordination, “the advantages outweigh the possible difficulties in setting up such a facility.”
Commenting on the move, Reddy says: “This is the best way to showcase your strengths, and to give clients the confidence that they have made the right choice. It is imperative to present the cohesiveness of your organisation, especially by emphasising the integration and one-stop solutions approach. This is important for us not only in the UAE, but in the broader Middle East and sub-continent as well.”
With such iconic projects as Meydan Racecourse under its belt, Trans Gulf of Dubai has just signed JV partnerships in Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and India, and is embarking on a major project in Morocco.
It was established in 1972 as an electrical company, and set up its mechanical division in 1990. It started working in Abu Dhabi in 2009, and is now focusing on the rest of the region.
“Currently we are quoting for various prestigious projects in Qatar,” says Reddy. He adds that the feedback so far looks good for success in this regard, with contracts expected to be awarded in the second quarter of the year.
In terms of the prevailing business environment, Reddy says: “It is a challenging phase for any company worth its salt. Given the response that Trans Gulf has had to date, it is confident of continuing to secure market share in the region. Certainly 2011 is looking good.”
