UME expands operations to hit 2014 target
UME expands workforce and facilities in a bid to hit 35% growth target
United Mechanical Equipment has revealed that it is hiring additional staff and building new facilities in a bid to hit its ambitious yearly growth target.
The UAE-based dealer for Sany, Dingli and Feeler intends to build on the success it achieved last year with 35% growth in 2014. To this end, the firm is expanding its sales and service operations with 10 to 11 extra staff members and new facilities in Mussafah and Jebel Ali.
“We are currently recruiting for both our sales and servicing teams,” said UME sales manager Hansraj Bhatia. “We have already taken on six new members of staff. In total, we are looking to add around three salespeople and between seven and eight service professionals.”
In addition to workforce expansion, the dealer is strengthening its servicing capabilities with new facilities in Jebel Ali and Mussafah.
“UME’s new service stations are already in the process of being built,” revealed Bhatia. “Our new station in Mussafah is around 70% complete, and we expect to move into the facility in April.”
Bhatia and his colleagues are confident that such measures will enable UME to strengthen its customer focus and, in turn, achieve its 35% growth target.
In December 2013, ConstructionWeekOnline.com brought you the news that UME received orders for 80% of the products that it took to The Big 5. This boost, according to Bhatia, has played a major role in the company’s encouraging start to 2014.
“January was good because many of the contacts we met at the Big 5 visited our offices to place orders,” he said. “Our new staff and facilities will add further value for UME customers.”
