Mekar, a leading central air-con company, has opened its own dedicated sales and service centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and will soon be opening similar offices in Qatar and Abu Dhabi.

Aliseo Group, the Italian company that owns Mekar, recently acquired the company’s distributor in the UAE, Royal Gulf, which was part of regional conglomerate Koohiji Group.

Mekar has provided high-end air-con products for many of the region’s iconic projects, including the seven-star Burj Al Arab hotel, the Burj Khalifa, the Yas Marina hotel in Abu Dhabi and Al Wakra hospital in Qatar.

“The objective behind making further investments in the GCC is based on the perception that the long-term outlook for the construction industry in this region is positive, and likely to remain so in the future,” said Aliseo Group president Francesco Boaro.

“The recent acquisition of Royal Gulf will enable Aliseo Group to spread its sales network across the GCC countries, and bring an array of high-quality HVAC products and solutions from Italy,” said Boaro.
