Emrill Services eyes expansion in Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah
Firm aims to capitalise on boom in residential, retail and hospitality developments
Emrill Services has opened two new offices in the UAE, in a bid to grow its business via its range of hard and soft management and manned security services.
The firm hopes to replicate its success in Dubai with its new offices in Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah.
According to a statement from the firm, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah have experienced a development boom that has seen the creation of multiple residential, retail and hospitality developments.
Sharjah is launching a number of ‘cities’ that will spread across huge land areas, including Aljada, Tilal City and the Al Zahia mixed-use community. The emirate is also set to build Sharjah Sustainable City, a $544m development occupying 7.2m sqft and featuring 1,120 villas, the firm said.
“For Emrill, expanding with new offices in Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah is well-timed and demonstrates the company’s commitment to our long-term business strategy. It comes as part of our plans to grow throughout the UAE and capitalise on our leading position in Dubai’s FM sector. With the opening of these new offices, we are building on years of success and are investing for future organic growth,” said CEO Stuart Harrison.
In January 2019, Sharjah’s ruler HH Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammed Al Qasimi announced the emirate would develop three real estate projects – Maryam Island, Kalba Waterfront and Palace Al Khan. The developments are expected to comprise high-end hospitality facilities, which will boost Sharjah’s residential, retail and hospitality sectors.
Ras Al Khaimah is also seeing a surge in popularity, several developers have launched residential and hospitality projects, the firm said. In addition to plans to add more than 3,000 residential units over the coming years, Ras Al Khaimah is also said to be working on attracting regional and international visitors, the statement said.
Harrison added, “While Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah are still relatively small markets for facilities management when compared to Abu Dhabi and Dubai, we are expecting the sector to grow significantly as government campaigns and strategies are implemented. Ras Al Khaimah in particular is becoming far more visible as a tourist destination and the new developments will lead to increased demand for FM services.”
He concluded, “We have many years of experience delivering a full range of hard and soft FM services to Dubai’s residential, entertainment and leisure, retail and hospitality sectors. We have learned how to effectively manage developments of all sizes, creating value partnerships with developers and asset owners through our consistent delivery of high standards. We are now positioned to take all of that expertise and deliver the same high-level services in Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah.”
