Union extended to serve the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s booming construction market
?Long-term distribution partner for Dorma, Universal Building Material Merchants Ltd (UBM), has been named distribution partner for Dorma’s operations in Saudi Arabia.
The two companies have been working together for more than a decade.
“The strategic partnership with Universal Building Materials Merchants allows Dorma to provide its current and future customers in Saudi Arabia with specific, value-added technical back-up and project-related services and solutions from Dorma’s project management team in the region,” said Ben Shaw, managing director of Dorma Gulf.
“UBM’s level of in-house technical expertise and capabilities, including its in-house scheduling team, warrants its recognition as Dorma’s official Door Hardware Technical Consultant in the Kingdom.”
Dorma said the aim of the extended partnership was to provide current and future customers in Saudi Arabia with “specific value-added technical support and project-related services and solutions”.
The firm has been operating in the region since the early 1970s, with the wider Dorma Group active for more than a century. It maintains major production plants in Europe, Singapore, Malaysia, China and North and South America, and has an international workforce of around 6500 employees.
