Situated in the Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai, Rotork Middle East’s purpose-built factory contains offices and workshops, 15 sales and technical staff to start off with and plans for further expansion.
The new 600 square meter facility provides increased local support for business in flow control markets throughout the Middle East, where Rotork has been active since the 1950s. A Rotork regional presence was first established in Abu Dhabi in the 1970s.
As well as holding stocks of products and spares locally, the new facility will provide a full range of valve adaptation, retrofitting, site service and asset management activity encompassing electric and fluid power actuators and associated equipment. A driving force behind the expansion is the demand for reduced project downtime, with more scope for planned, emergency and preventative maintenance.
