Emerson has said that it will invest US$33mn into expanding its Dubai-based Middle East and Africa (MEA) headquarters
The new expansion project in Jebal Ali Free Zone (Jafza) will add new distribution and testing facilities, assembly areas and offices and will cover an area of 13,000 sq m of developed space. Work has been scheduled for completion by the end of 2013.
Ed Purvis, executive vice president of Emerson and global business leader of Emerson Climate Technologies, commented, "“Emerson is witnessing rapid growth in the region, and the establishment of this state-of-the-art facility enhances our ability to provide full local support to our customers.”
The company said the expansion would enable Emerson Climate Technologies to consolidate two existing Free Zone sites.
Purvis added, "We are elevating our service levels and positioning Emerson Climate Technologies as a major supplier to the region for our various products and services. The testing and assembly facilities will enable us to further localise products to the Middle East’s demanding environmental conditions, and build solutions to meet our customers’ specific business needs."
Emerson added that it saw significant growth potential in the region for Emerson Climate Technologies, Emerson Network Power and Emerson Process Management.
