Leatherbarrow, said: "The Center will collaborate with key regional clients to create, design, test and manufacture system and product solutions. Our decision to establish operations at Dubai Techno Park was made after taking into account, excellent facilities and services provided by Park and assistance received in accommodating our infrastructure needs. Dubai is definitely the commercial centre of the GCC region, with its well-planned transport links and the availability of legal and financial resources. The ease of doing business at Techno Park, combined with the booming construction industry in the region, also influenced our decision to invest in a facility here."

Abdullah Ahmed Al Qurashi, chief executive officer, Dubai Techno Park, said: "Trox's investment in the technology center at Techno Park comes at a time when the region's construction industry is at an all-time high, with a range of residential and commercial developments being constructed throughout Dubai. Trox Group can fully capitalise on this boom by targeting construction companies with their high quality terminal air movement and fire protection products. Safety is of paramount importance to builders, thus presenting a high potential market for Trox. The 15,000 square meter facility, built with an expected investment of Dh 37 million, will be the twelfth design and manufacturing center worldwide for the Trox Group. The Trox UK Ltd. has had a branch office in Dubai for more than 30 years, supplying products to major clients like Emirates Towers, Burj Al Arab and new Emirates Palace Hotel."

"Trox Middle East Technology Centre will enable the company to carry out customer tests comparing alternative products and systems locally, by which customers, for the first time, will be able to optimize system design before the product is delivered. This process will ensure the satisfactory operation of the system without experiencing the current level of problems due to noise and draughts, added Thomas Humpf, senior vice president, Trox Group.

The new facility will offer services like application engineering, testing, demonstration, customer and operator training, system commissioning and manufacturing. Trox will also benefit tremendously from the range of infrastructure facilities and support services at Techno Park. The park is a hub for various industries involved in hi-tech manufacturing and trading, and serves as an ideal location for companies to target the Middle East markets, concluded Al Qurashi.
