Mosdorfer GmbH is looking to Middle Eastern countries for business opportunities, with a particular focus on Saudi Arabia, which it deems the region’s biggest investor in the transmissions market
Speaking to Technical Review at the recent Middle East Electricity exhibition, Mosdorfer managing director Erich Kaltmann said that the company was using its time at the show for negotiations with Middle Eastern companies.
“Saudi is the market investing a lot of money into transmission and it is the biggest one next to the big US market,” said Kaltmann.
He added that the Austrian company, which specialises in fittings and damping systems for overhead transmission lines, is enjoying plenty of business through the Middle East, especially in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, while Oman and Qatar promise increasing business potential thanks to their investment into infrastructure.
The Middle East has always been a significant region for the company. Mosdorfer has been present in the Gulf since 1977– it was the location for some of its first exports – and now the region accounts for approximately 20 per cent of the company’s global sales, making it the biggest market after Europe.
“That's why we decided pretty early on to go to this show,” explained Kaltmann. “The transmission business is very niche and there are several shows globally, but this the biggest one and the most important for us.”
