AEI Cables to shut Dubai base after consolidation
Cable manufacturer will continue operations and projects in the region
AEI Cables, the UK based cable manufacturer, plans to close its Dubai office as it enters a period of restructuring and consolidation, the company’s Middle East general manager said on Monday.
While the company will continue its operations and projects in the region, it will no longer operate an office on the ground due to its parent company’s decision to consolidate its business in the UK, Graeme Aittis, general manager – Middle East, said.
Having commenced operations in Dubai in 2008, AEI Cables is regarded as having one of the most comprehensive cable product ranges available.
The company covers the construction, industrial, fire protection, mining, oil and gas, power and rail industries.
Aittis said that the cable company was refocusing its operations on specialist contracting and fire-protection services.
Based in Birtley in north-east England, the company has more than 170 years of cable-making experience. It is a subsidiary of Paramount Communications, one of India’s largest cable manufacturers.
