Bertoli to set up plant in RAK
Italian industrial manufacturer to set up assembly plant and training centre in Ras Al Khaimah free zone.
Italian industrial plant and machinery manufacturer, The Bertoli Group, is to set up an assembly plant and training centre in the UAE to help capitalise on the Middle East construction boom.
The company is working with its UAE-based regional agent, KF1, to finalise plans for a $1.9 million assembly plant to be built in the Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone by the end of this year.
Mukhtar Ahmed, business development manager, KF1, said the company is also planning to set up a centre of excellence at RAK Free Trade Zone to train Bertoli's regional network of dealers, operators, engineers and technical staff.
Bertoli is among a major group of Italian companies using a new construction industry showcase event in Dubai, the Big 5 PMV, to capture their share of business from more than 2,100 existing and planned projects in the region.
