DOKA Gulf relocates to new JAFZA base

New office and warehouse officially opened in JAFZA

Formwork technology supplier Doka Gulf, has relocated to a larger office and warehouse site to meet a rising demand for products.

Now in a newly constructed facility in the South Zone of Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA), Dubai, Doka’s new base is almost twice the size of the previous site, at 50,000 square meters. The site how houses the groups’ largest Doka formwork ex-stock in the Middle East as well as Doka’s pre-assembled ‘ready-to-use’ system, with additional product inspection and reconditioning services.

“The centralisation of our yard, warehouse and offices in the new Jebel Ali facility will further strengthen Doka Gulf’s customer service capabilities, enabling us to stand behind our product innovations and market leadership for the upcoming years,” said general manager Peter Vogel at the official opening.

Also present were the Austrian Ambassador to the UAE, Dr Julius Lauritsch and Salma Hareb, CEO of Economic Zones World, JAFZA’s parent company. Hareb presented the company with a congratulatory plaque.

“Having worked on projects such as Burj al Arab and Burj Khalifa, it is a vibrant and important market for Doka — whose expansion is led by the UAE’s extraordinary opportunities,” Vogel said.

During his address, Dr Julius Lauritsch quoted Austrian export figures, saying exports to the UAE “rebounded strongly in 2010”, increasing 16% to a value of €498 million.

“The UAE is admired for its innovation and speed in complex, large-scale construction and infrastructure projects,” Vogel added.

Doka Gulf has more than 170 employees in the U.A.E. and branch sales and service offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah, in addition to the new facility.

Doka Gulf is a subsidiary of Doka Industry GmbH, an international developer and supplier of Formwork, headquartered in Austria.
