Leoni to open sales office in Dubai

Globalisation of infrastructure project business

Nuremberg – Leoni, the leading provider of cables and cable systems to the automotive sector and other industries, will on the day after tomorrow open a subsidiary in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This sales office in Dubai is part of the globalisation strategy that aims to establish and expand business in regions of dynamic growth.

Leoni is, with its new branch, seeking proximity to its existing and future customers in the UAE and other Gulf states such as Saudi Arabia, Oman and Bahrain. Hitherto the Company's activity in the region involved commercial agents. The newly formed company, named LEONI Middle East FZE, is based in Dubai's Jebel Ali free trade zone.

The Business Units Infrastructure & Datacom as well as Energy & Communication will start the sales activity, which will initially concentrate on infrastructure projects. New construction such as office buildings, airports and shopping centres provides great potential for high-quality cabling systems. In particular, Leoni offers power, fire protection, data and safety cables as well as related engineering services for such projects.
