“We are very pleased that Farnek Avireal has been awarded this prestigious contract by DIP; entrusting us once again with the security of a landmark development such as Sunset.  Farnek will provide full range of security services and deploy well trained staff to help maintain efficient business operations at Sunset, ensure the safety of Sunset’s retailers, tenants and shoppers and offer them complete peace-of-mind,” said Mr. Mohammed Hassan, Divisional Manager - Security at Farnek Avireal.

Commenting on the contract, Ms. Ani Vladi, Marketing and Operations Manager at DIP, said, “Selecting the subcontractor to handle the security services for Sunset was a long and competitive process, where several companies tendered their applications. However, considering the importance of the scope of work, DIP had to be very selective in the choice we made. Fortunately, we were also working with Farnek Avireal on other DIP projects and were familiar with their performance, superior quality of work and thorough professionalism. We were looking for the best security services for Sunset, which is our premier project and hence we decided to award Sunset’s security contract to Farnek Avireal. We are confident they will outdo themselves in providing the best security services to our tenants and residents as well as to our shoppers at Sunset Mall.”
