Imdaad, a leading provider of integrated facilities management solutions in the UAE, has underlined the need to further boost quality standards to sustain the continued growth of the GCC's facilities management industry, which Imdaad has estimated to be worth USD 15 billion. Imdaad also pointed out the need to continue to invest in enhancing the competencies of facilities management professionals and to adopt sustainable technologies and best practices.
Highlighting the critical importance of delivering quality-focused services, Imdaad was recently honoured with the Distinguished Partner award by Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) during a recent ceremony commemorating Jafza's 25th anniversary. The award recognised Imdaad's excellence in delivering facilities management solutions, which have contributed to the continued success of Jafza as one of the fastest growing free zones in the world. Imdaad has been the exclusive provider of facilities management solutions at Jafza, in a partnership that has benefited over 6,400 companies operating in the free zone.
"Imdaad continues to develop genuinely sustainable and cost-efficient solutions that are vital to the long-term growth aspirations of high-profile clients such as Jebel Ali Free Zone. Moreover, we also invest heavily in human resource development and in acquiring state-of-the-art technology to address present and future requirements in the facilities management sector. We believe that this is the ideal strategy to help open more growth opportunities in the GCC's facilities management industry, which has now reached a value of around USD 15 billion," said Jamal Abdulla Lootah, CEO, Imdaad.
"Facilities are critical to the operation of business enterprises. It is therefore equally important to maintain the highest level of quality and excellence in the delivery of maintenance and management services to ensure that facilities and other fundamental assets are in the best condition and are able to perform optimally. Imdaad is grateful to Jafza for conferring us with the Distinguished Service Provider award and recognising our efforts to uphold quality and excellence and in focusing on sustainable development and environment-friendly practices in the delivery of facilities management solutions. In particular, we are deeply thankful to Hisham Abdullah Al Shirawi, Chairman of Economic Zones World, and Salma Hareb, CEO of Jafza and Economic Zones World, for their confidence in Imdaad's expertise. We hope that this distinction will help bolster the long-term relationship between Imdaad and Jafza," added Lootah.
