Ten Years of Presence at the Gulf
Anniversary at Arburg
Right at the start of the year, Arburg's subsidiary in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) celebrated its ten-year anniversary at the beginning of the Arabplast trade fair. From its location in Ras Al Khaimah, Arburg VAE also supports the GCC countries (Gulf Cooperation Council) Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Yemen. Andrea Carta, Director Sales Overseas, presented the traditional anniversary sculpture to the subsidiary manager Joachim Branz on behalf of the parent company.
The anniversary celebration took place at the Dubai Creek Club on Marina Island. Congratulations from the entire Arburg parent company were expressed by Carta: "I heartily congratulate Joachim Branz and his team on ten years of Arburg in the United Arab Emirates. To our customers, I would like to express my special thanks for the trust you have placed in Arburg and for the successful cooperation."
Great Potential of the Arabian Market
Since the subsidiary was founded in 2009, Arburg has continuously invested in the Arabian market, which offers large potential with sophisticated technological applications and a growing number of plastic-processing companies, according to Andrea Carta. "The entire spectrum is covered, from the production and refining of crude oil, to the production of plastic, right through to processing."
The focus of the Arburg VAE subsidiary is the packaging industry, which has traditionally been a strong presence in the Arab states. Technical molded parts and products for medical technology and the automotive sector are also important in this market. High-tech machines are in great demand, and it is this premium segment that Arburg targets with its product range.
In addition to the premium injection molding technology, Arburg offers professional consulting provided by the company's experts, as well as comprehensive support in pre- and after-sales service. The service package includes an expert hotline for fast assistance by phone, local service technicians and a wide range of training courses and seminars. All this is rounded off by an spare parts warehouse to guarantee high availability.
Arburg cooperates exclusively with the Higher Institute for Plastics Fabrication (HIPF) in Riyadh in order to introduce young people to high-end injection molding technology. The technical center of the HIPF offers space for 15 Allrounders and the full infrastructure of an injection molding company, allowing live presentations.
