Wilo began the start of construction works for its new facility in the Middle East.

German manufacturer of pumps and systems, Wilo, has begun work on its new facility in Dubai, with laying of the foundation stone at Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA).

The 8,000m2 Wilo complex will have its own assembly line and also feature office space, showrooms, a logistics centre, and dedicated training rooms.

The training rooms, called ‘Wilo-Academy’, offer dealers, engineers, and consumers a location for attending training sessions for the various applications of Wilo products.

The new facilities will be constructed as an energy-efficient building in Dubai.

Carsten Krumm, COO of Wilo, said: “The role of the city as a platform and logistic hub for trade in the Middle East, Dubai’s efficient infrastructure by land, sea, and air and the long-term economic stability offered by this country were the crucial factors tipping the balance in favour of investing here.

“The construction is scheduled for completion in early 2018.”

In 2008, Wilo had opened a sales office in Dubai, but then moved to larger space to support its growing presence in the region.

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, group chairman and CEO of DP World and Chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation, said: “We are very happy to host the Wilo state-of-the-art facility in Jafza, which is the globally recognised hub for the wider Middle East region that spans from West Asia, the CIS, and, Africa to the Indian Subcontinent, a market of more than 2.5 billion consumers.”
