Agreement reached on the sidelines of the inaugural Leminar Customer Conference
Dubai, UAE, 9th Dec 2018: Leminar Air Conditioning Industries, the leader in quality HVAC ductwork manufacturing in the region, signed a manufacturing sub-license agreement with Sharqawi Air Distribution System Factory Company. The deal was formalised during the recently concluded Leminar Customer Conference 2018 at the InterContinental Hotel, Dubai Festival City, UAE.
Sharqawi will fabricate and sell the Fenland Fire Duct system (FFC-UK) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on an exclusive basis, with technical support and raw material supplied from Leminar’s Dubai facility and FFC-UK, when required. The increasing awareness and demand for the FFC ducts from clients outside the UAE urged Leminar Air Conditioning Industries, which is currently an exclusive manufacturer in the Middle East, to seek out a new partner.
Pramodh Idicheria, COO, Leminar Air Conditioning Industries, LLC, said: “The UAE’s manufacturing segment is becoming stronger over the years resulting in a greater outflow of licensing agreements from UAE businesses to other markets. The partnership with Sharqawi is a testament to our commitment to support the growth of the manufacturing industry within the UAE and wider GCC.”
Dipak Bhadra, Executive Director, Leminar Air Conditioning Industries, added:” The FFC duct has been one of our most popular products since the very beginning owing to its quality and performance. The partnership with Sharqawi is a befitting one as their manufacturing meet highest expected quality standards, which combined with our expertise will make way for FFC ducts to be used on more and more major projects in the region.”
While Leminar Air Conditioning Industries’ 325,000 square feet manufacturing facility is the largest in the Middle East, Sharqawi has a large factory of its own and has supplied ducts to prestigious projects including Riyadh Metro BACS, Jeddah Gate, Al Rajhi HQ, Al Khorayef Centre, KAP to name a few.
The agreement was signed between Bhadra and Mohammad Salah, General Manager from Sharqawi, under the auspices of Kevin Gibson, Technical Director of Fenland Fire Contracts UK during the Leminar Customer Conference.
The conference was a first of its kind event for the HVAC industry organised and attended by over 300 customers and partners. It featured an impressive line-up of speakers and addressed an array of topics including a call for sustainable solutions, the importance of adhering to fire safety codes and need for more attentiveness to Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) among other subjects.
