Rubber World Industries (RWI), the manufacturer of rubber insulation 'Gulf-O-flex' and part of the Shaikhani Group of Companies, is set to invest $2 million to expand its production facilities in Ajman. This will involve additional production lines, new equipment and a new R&D laboratory.

This is expected to triple the manufacturer's production capacity in Q1 2017. RWI will also introduce glass wool thermal insulation to its line of products.

Rubber World Industries will showcase its range of HVAC products at The Big 5 Dubai.

At present, the manufacturer accounts for 60 per cent of the Middle East rubber insulation market and recorded over Dh42 million in sales revenue in 2015. The company also supplies 55 per cent of the region's requirements for rubber insulation pipes and sheets and other rubber-derived products.

"The burgeoning demand for high-quality rubber insulation products has steered our focus towards increasing our production capacity, while utilising the latest R&D technologies to further enhance our products' performance," said Rizwan Shaikhani, managing director, Rubber World Industries.

"As we see extensive expansion opportunities within the regional and global markets, increasing the quantity and quality of our products are our goals for 2017. Events such as The Big 5 give us an opportunity to strengthen and establish new business relationships with customers from Europe, Australia, America and other regions, which is why we are having a bigger presence at this year's event," Shaikhani added.

Established in 1993, Rubber World Industries is the only manufacturing facility in the GCC that produces a range of rubber insulation products to meet requirements in oil and gas fields, construction, shipping and automobile industries.
