New sales centres in growth markets

February 14th, 2014, Published in Articles: EngineerIT


Endress+Hauser will open up further important growth markets in the Middle East and Northern Africa with new sales centres. In early 2014 the Swiss Group established subsidiaries in the United Arab Emirates and in Algeria. For two decades the company has been represented in the UAE by the local representative Descon Automation Control Systems. Two years ago it also started a successful venture with Descon’s local partner in Abu Dhabi. To optimise customer support on the Arabian Peninsula, the company now integrates Descon’s Endress+Hauser business into its own sales organisation. It will now operate in the market with two offices at locations in Abu Dhabi (around 20 employees) and in Dubai (around 30 employees). Heavy investments in oil and gas, and in developing the public infrastructure (saltwater desalination plants, water storage, power stations), have opened up a strong market for high-grade measurement engineering and automation solutions. The new sales centre is also equipped with resources for services, engineering and project management.
