HESCO® barriers to be manufactured in the UAE
Hesco Group recently entered into the Tawazun Economic Agreement/UAE Offset programme and later this year will open their first manufacturing facility within the UAE and, as part of their long-term commitment to the region, will be providing employment opportunities to UAE military veterans.
Hesco Group announced at IDEX 2017 the opening of the UAE manufacturing facility, sharing 25 years of design, technology and experience in force protection solutions to supply the immediate demands of the UAE Military and the GCC.
The new Hesco factory will be built on the Al Ain industrial area, adding a viable contribution to the surrounding commercial sector and sourcing a locally based skilled workforce to join the Hesco team, creating jobs in both factory and operations with particularly interest in providing employment opportunities to UAE military veterans.
Hamish Russell, Global Business Development Manager for Hesco Group:
“We have had a fantastic relationship with the UAE Land Forces for the past 13 years and the opening of this manufacturing base demonstrates not only our long-term commitment to the region but also the ability to supply locally manufactured products, proving our commitment to respond quickly to our clients’ needs.”
“The new venture as part of the Tawazun Economic Agreement will also create business opportunities throughout the region and we are all excited to see what the future brings for Hesco in the UAE.”
The facility based in Al Ain will not only manufacture Hesco product aligned for military use, such as defensive barriers, elevated watchtowers and safe haven bunkers, but Hesco will also use this as an opportunity to further develop their growing reputation for providing high security products, which includes the patented surface-mounted HVM barrier; TERRABLOCKTM XT.
