Danube Building Materials, the leader in construction, building materials and shop fitting industries, is eyeing to reinforce its market share in the Middle East region with its participation at this year’s edition of ‘The Big 5 International Building & Construction Show,’ the largest gathering of the construction industry in the Middle East, which is being held from November 21 - 24, 2011 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC). At the exhibition, the leading company is hosting three stands and launching 3 new products, which include the UAE’s first ever concealed Jacuzzi with a built-in TV screen and a technologically advanced Florence water heater. Danube is also showcasing its broad portfolio of building and interior home products like sanitaryware, tiles and automatic shut-off hand sprayers.

According to Danube senior executives, the company is looking to expand the reach of its Milano products to 25 countries over the next six months in the MENA region. To reach this goal, the company is aiming to attract distributors for its Milano line during ‘The Big 5 Show.’ A part of this move is with the launch of the new Florence Water Heater, which utilizes single weld technology for its inner tank and has a built in copper heating system that offers stronger resistance to acid and alkaline. Fully compliant with set European standards, the new unit is presented in a blue diamond enamel coating that protects against rust and corrosion. The new water heater boasts of key features like a heavy duty anode rod, energy saving high density foam insulation, water tubes with whirl flow design, thermal cut out, multifunctional safety valve, special glass lined coating for water inlet/outlet, adjustable temperature knob with thermostat, external temperature meter and a triple power input. Danube will also be launching the newest range of ROMA Shattafs, which are shut-off hand sprayers under the Milano line. The leading company’s Milano products can be found at the Milano stand, B 197, along Sheikh Rashid hall.

“Our participation at this year’s edition of ‘The Big 5 Show’ demonstrates our eagerness to create a stronger market presence by leveraging our building and home interior products across the show’s many participants,” said Rizwan Sajan, Founder and Chairman, Danube. “Danube’s presence at the event will allow us to reach out and meet new and potential distributors and also use it as a springboard to launch our engaging new line of products.” 

Danube’s second stand will feature the country’s first concealed Jacuzzi that comes with its very own built-in TV screen by Apollo. The luxurious new Jacuzzi can be found at stand A 197 in Sheik Rashid Hall. The third stand will feature the leading company’s tile collections, ideally made for villas and commercial projects. The wide choice of tiles have been designed with the latest Roto printing technology and have been infused with a Nano polished tile finish. Also highlighted are large format tiles with zero joints for kitchens and bathrooms. These stalls are also displaying high quality faucets, WC basins, shower panels and other bathroom accessories. Visitors to the three stands will receive free gift vouchers that they can use at any Danube BUILDMART showrooms across the UAE.

“Our three stands at ‘The Big 5 Show’ will put the spotlight on some of the world class high quality brands that we distribute across the region. Both our Milano and Apollo range of products conform to set European standards of excellence and are offered at affordable prices. We are confident to meet any orders and demands for our products as we maintain a large inventory of our products in our different warehouse facilities in the UAE,” concluded Sajan.
