Dubai-based Emirates Glass has recently supplied close to 10,000 square meters of its newly launched EmiCool High Performance Glass to a number of important projects in Dubai including the upcoming luxury hotel development Madinat Jumeirah, stated a press release.
Against tight deadlines, Emirates Glass supplied 4,000 square meters of EmiCool to Madinat Jumeirah. In the same time frame, it was able to complete deliveries to Al-Qasr Hotel in Sharjah of 2,300 square meters of EmiCool and an additional 3,500 square meters of the product was supplied to the Emaar Properties’ Green Community Villas Phase 1.
High performance EmiCool was launched only last month and has already found great demand in this part of the world that is characterized by a hot and sunny climate. EmiCool offers natural reflection, free from distortion. EmiCool mirrors are supplied with a vinyl film applied on the rear surface to prevent fall-out in the event of a severe impact and to ensure safety of the occupants.
Emirates Glass has been successful in breaching important overseas markets that are only going to grow and expand the demand for the Dubai-based company’s products.
“We have had buyers come from as far away as Hyderabad,” said Emirates Glass General Manager, Jerry Dowling. India is large producer of glass itself, but still our product was found to be so suitable that the Hytec City in Hyderabad ordered 1,600 square meters of glass products from us,” Dowling pointed out.
This is in addition to the 1,327 square meters of glass supplied recently to Wellington Mews Hotel in Mumbai and another 1,000 square meters to the Weil Cornell Medical College in Doha, Qatar. Other buyers include the Agricultural Bank in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
“We have made a beginning in the export markets which now account for about 10 percent of the total production capacity of up to 60,000 square meters depending on the product mix. However, the point to note is that we completed supplies even to overseas projects in between two to three weeks,” Dowling said.
“We are now looking to get more aggressively into Asia and Europe – especially the UK market. These will be tough to breach, but we have the strength of our product to our advantage and I am sure we will succeed,” said the company General Manager. — (menareport.com)
