 Thales international of France expands regional operations

“Strategic partnerships with international companies boosts the economic growth locally and globally” - HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Airport Free Zone

HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Airport Free Zone has expressed satisfaction at the level of cooperation and strategic partnership between Thales International Co. and the Dubai Airport Free Zone where the French company has its regional office.

HH Sheikh Ahmed said: “Thales presence in the Dubai Airport Free Zone supports the commercial and business co-operation between UAE and France and the global business opportunities that have become a major necessity in the information based economy”.

HH Sheikh Ahmed and Dr. Mohammed Al Zarouni, Director General of the Dubai Airport Freezone met the company’s high-level delegation led by Alexandre de Juniac, Executive Vice President of Thales and Chairman of Thales International Asia, Afica, Middle East and Latin America,  . Also present were Olivier Badard, the President, Thales International, Middle East based in the Dubai Airport Free Zone and Raphael Eskinazi, Director General, Thales International and Michael Licoc, Director of Abu Dhabi branch.

HH Sheikh Ahmed added: “Many big companies such as Thales have established operations in Dubai and this underscores the emirate’s good investment environment and the required infrastructure for these companies to do business.”

HH Sheikh Ahmed noted that Dubai is looking forward to more cooperation between the Dubai Airport Free Zone and the global companies and businessmen in UAE and neighboring countries as well.

He emphasized the importance of supporting the commercial goals of these companies through facilitating measures to achieve Dubai’s strategy to attract international organizations to the Dubai Airport Free Zone.

 

“"Over the past 30 years, Thales has been a proud industrial partner of the UAE both in the civilian and defence markets. In Dubai alone, with more than 250 local staff based in the Emirate, Thales is a major contributor to the Dubai Airport and Metro projects in the field of security and signalling and look forward to continuing supporting DCAA and RTA over the next many years.
Dubai also houses Thales' Regional Headquarter for the Middle East region. The Dubai Airport Free Zone under leadership of Dr Zarouni has proven to be the ideal vehicle to base its regional operations and benefit from Dubai 's unique airport infrastructure."” said Mr. Badard.

The company’s office, located in the Dubai Airport Free Zone, adjacent to Dubai International Airport, represents an extra boon to connect Thales to its strategic partners in the region and helps more efficient work, Mr. Badard added.

Dr.  Al Zarouni added that the Dubai Airport Free Zone, with more than 1500 multinational companies, over 70% of which are international companies, saves no effort to provide the best facilities and services for these companies. He stressed that Thales is one of the leading companies in our list of global organizations choosing Dubai as a base.

Speaking on behalf of Thales, Mr. De Juniac said, “Over the past 30 years, Thales has been a proud industrial partner of the UAE both in the civilian and defence markets. In Dubai alone, with more than 250 local staff based in the emirate, Thales is a major contributor to the Dubai Airport and Metro projects in the field of security and signaling and look forward to continuing supporting DCAA and RTA over the next many years.”

“Dubai also houses Thales' Regional Headquarter for the Middle East region. The Dubai Airport Free Zone under leadership of Dr Zarouni has proven to be the ideal platform to base its regional operations and benefit from Dubai's unique airport infrastructure,” Mr. De Juniac concluded.
