Ducab, the leading manufacturer of high quality power cables in the Middle East, and Winner of Mohammed Bin Rashid Business Excellence Award for their achievements in the manufacturing sector held a dinner at the Doha Sheraton last night to announce the opening of their new office in Doha open.
The dinner was attended by leading contractors and consultants as well as major companies and industrial players in the Qatari market.
Ducab’s Qatar Country Manager Mr. Shailendra Pratap Singh stressed the importance of Ducab’s expansion in the GCC, and especially in Qatar, whose economy is growing despite the financial crisis. He said that Ducab’s decision to have a strong base in Qatar came as a response to the rising demands for cables in the Qatari market.
Ducab today has a dedicated sales team, channel partners and a distribution and logistics centre in Doha with plans for expansion.
Mr. Andrew Shaw Ducab Managing Director said: “Qatar has been an important market for Ducab for many years and we are expanding now to support increasing sales and the impressive growth of the Qatari economy.”
Ducab’s Qatar Country Manager Mr. Shailendra Pratap Singh said: “Qatar is one of the strongest growing economies in the Arab World. The IMF forecast Qatar's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to grow at 18% in 2009 and at 16.4% 2010. Along with this economic boom comes the infrastructure growth which will increase the demand for high quality cables, which is expected to grow at 17% annually over the next 5 years.”
“By reinforcing our presence locally here in Qatar, we can better serve the local market, and understand its specific needs and requirements. At Ducab we have 30 years of experience in the cable industry in the GCC and elsewhere and we look forward to share our experience and emulate our success in the UAE here in Qatar,” Concluded Ducab’s Qatar Country Manager.
