Midline looking to leverage Big 5 for GCC expansion

MidlineIn line with its plans to achieve 20 per cent growth by end of 2011, Midline Industrial Equipment is looking to leverage Big 5.Midline Industrial Equipment, provider of German power tools and maintenance services, is set to participate at The Big 5 2011 show for the first time.

In line with its plans to achieve 20 per cent growth by end of 2011, the company is looking to leverage Dubai's reputation as a trade hub and the Big 5's standing as a premier business development platform.

Midline distributes unique products by German supplier PROTOOL GmbH, such as ingenious drilling and screw-driving systems with Fast-Fix technology where machine functions can be changed without additional tools, angle attachments that allow operation in tight areas and around corners, high powered cordless machines for reach and convenience, and the RenoFix range of material removal and renovation tools.

"The idea is to promote our function-specific tools, but also offer service contracts for all tools that might be used on a construction site. This allows clients to benefit from our cumulative experience in a hassle-free manner. They can get all their servicing needs met at one point of contact as opposed to going to multiple vendors," said Amin Hamdan, Managing Partner, Midline Industrial Equipment.

In 2010, 2,150 exhibitors from 71 countries and 27 national pavilions exhibited at The Big 5, addressing the core sectors of real estate, infrastructure, industry, power and water.

"We are looking forward to expanding to other Emirates in the UAE, and broadening our business and distribution network outside of the GCC. In particular, we are eying Saudi Arabia and Qatar – both active markets for construction, and the tools and expertise required to keep sites running efficiently," Hamdan concluded.
