Zurn Industries has opened a facility for warehousing and light assembly activities in Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza), Dubai.
The facility has been designed to offer rapid order fulfilment and inventory replenishment for multiple market segments, including plumbing, drainage, fire protection, and irrigation.
The US-headquartered water system supplier will use the 930m2 warehouse to service customers and partners across its Middle East, Africa, and Asia Subcontinent region.
Craig Wehr, president of Zurn Industries, commented: “This new service centre shows our commitment to continuing to expand and serve the significant opportunity in the Middle East and beyond.
“We are excited to be part of that vast and growing construction region,” he added.
Zurn Industries’ latest warehouse was formed under Rexnord Middle East, a subsidiary of parent company Rexnord Corporation.
The opening ceremony was attended by a selection of Zurn Industries’ senior management figures, including Samual Karge, vice president for sales and marketing; Scott Burnett, vice president of operations; Glen Trickle, vice president of engineering and innovation; Ken Clark, director of international sales; and Stefan Greving, legal counsel for Rexnord.
