Firm looking to increase temporary warehouse, mobile airport and relocatable aircraft hangar business in the Middle East
Losberger De Boer says Jim Muldoon, its new managing director for the Middle East, Central Asia and Russia, will bring proven operational capability and a “reputation for driving business forward while maintaining high levels of client satisfaction” to the role.
Jim Muldoon, who will be based in the Dubai regional headquarters of the temporary event structure and semi-permanent buildings specialist and has over 20 years of strategic and business development experience together with extensive understanding of Gulf markets through his work in various senior management roles throughout the GCC. His previous management experience spans the retail, building design, fit-out and modular building industries.
“Capitalising on the ever-growing trend towards temporary building usage across the Middle East, Losberger De Boer has designed and developed a high-specification, semi-permanent building concept which is driving significant growth over and above its core event structure rental business. Muldoon has stated his intention to build upon this strong market position and the company’s pioneering background in this field,” said the company in a statement. “Muldoon’s past achievements have included achieving year-on-year revenue of over US$100 million through implementing a range of operational management strategies while working for a major UK-based retail group leading 770 staff.”
“Offering bespoke, design-led temporary and semi-permanent building solutions that can be tailored to individual client requirements and delivered in record-breaking time is our key objective,” commented Muldoon. “The Gulf market remains highly receptive to the Losberger De Boer rapid build concept and our world class standards. In addition to our range of over 70 systemised temporary event structures – all of which are European-manufactured and ISO-certified – we are excited to continue rolling out our next generation of semi-permanent buildings that look and feel like permanent buildings, but can be built in weeks and not months or years. Crucially, our clients can start trading almost immediately on new sites while providing the flexibility to relocate at short notice if and when business circumstances change.
“I’m proud to now be leading such a progressive, environmentally-friendly building solution company. We plan to increase our temporary warehouse, mobile airport and relocatable aircraft hangar business in the Middle East, Central Asia and Russia, as well as our specialist government and military Rapid Deployment System offering.”
According to Losberger De Boer, sustainability is a key feature of its temporary building concept. Given most models are already factory manufactured and are relocatable, temporary structure use is a zero carbon choice compared to a new permanent building: “Furthermore, the latest insulation technology deployed produces a 40 per cent decrease in power use for HVAC, compared to more traditional temporary structures, further driving substantial economic and environmental benefits for customers.”
