The Dh50 million building was officially inaugurated by Shaikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President, dubai department of Civil Aviation and Chairman, Emirates Group. Business partners and guests from the banking, security and valuables trading community also attended the ceremony.

The new purpose-built headquarters for Emirates Group Security and its Transguard business divisions, is a one-stop centre designed to efficiently and securely handle valuables and vulnerable cargo for commercial and international shipping. It is dedicated to high-value shipments only, consolidating all the related handling processes, services and expertise under one roof.

Shaikh Ahmed said, "This new facility will boost Transguard's and Emirates Group Security's capabilities, and enhance their leadership position in the security solutions industry. The advanced infrastructure will also play a key role in fulfilling Dubai's vision to become a premier trading and shipping centre for valuables and gold. We look forward to providing shippers and traders of valuable cargo with the best quality services, and a convenient, secure environment to trade and process their cargo."

The new building is fully-equipped to handle valuable and vulnerable goods such as computer chips, mobile phones, and pharmaceuticals — allowing such cargo to be speedily processed. Cash can be securely packed and efficiently shipped around the world, making it a boon for banking and security exchanges.

The facility also has airside accessibility, offering the fastest route from stronghold to aircraft and vice versa. Transguard is the only security company in the UAE authorised to offer this service. In addition, office space is available for lease to businesses such as exchange houses who could benefit from the facility's secure premises to reduce cost of insurance and movements of valuables.
