Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), October 9, 2019 – Midrex has announced the opening of a new office, Midrex Technologies Gulf Services FZCO, located in the Airport Free Zone (DAFZA) in Dubai, UAE. The establishment of this office marks a significant footprint expansion for Midrex and acknowledges the strength of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. With the abundant availability of natural gas, natural resources, and the pool of talented experts, the MENA region is a world hub for iron and steel manufacturing. Over the last decade some of the largest and most advanced MIDREX® Plants have been commissioned in this region.
The decision to open this office brings Midrex closer to its clients and licensees. “Throughout the 50-plus years of business, we acknowledge that listening and responding to our customers’ needs has benefited both the industry and Midrex,” General Manager of Midrex Dubai, David Oswald said. “Our hope is that faster response time and flexibility will strengthen relationships with the market and will enable Midrex to maintain its leadership role in direct reduction ironmaking (DRI) technology.”
Initially the office will primarily support the aftermarket group, Midrex Global Solutions, with a focus on water treatment and comprehensive integrated service offerings. The expectation is that additional support and services will be conducted by the office in Dubai as the market expands.
Midrex Technologies Gulf Services FZCO is located at Building 5EA, Room 804 DAFZA, Dubai UAE and will be staffed with regional and international teammates to support the needs of the region. Midrex Technologies, Inc. is headquartered in Charlotte, NC, USA with offices in the UK, India, and China.
