Wilo Group, one of the leading manufacturers of pumps and pump systems, has announced the official launch of its new manufacturing facility at Jafza (Jebel Ali Free Zone) in Dubai.

In addition to office space, showrooms and a logistics centre, the Wilo complex, which covers over 8,000 sq m, will also feature dedicated training rooms and its own assembly line, said a statement from Wilo.

The new Wilo building is among the most energy-efficient buildings in its class in Dubai and was certified in accordance with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold, it added.

Wilo Group Chairman and CEO Oliver Hermes said: “With the opening of our first office in Dubai in 2008, we laid the groundwork for successful developments in the Near and Middle East. This new building and its functional expansion accounts for the strategic significance of this central location within the region.”

The opening celebration was attended by prominent individuals, including German ambassador to the UAE Peter Fischer and Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO of DP World and Jafza.

“Since the founding of our first office about ten years ago, we have become a major supplier of pumps and pump system solutions in local markets,” said Georg Weber, the chief technology officer of the Wilo Group, during his opening remarks.

“In the future, we will be able to better and more efficiently serve the needs of our customers and partners in the region by fulfilling local market requirements with tailored products, solutions, and services,” he stated.

Hermes, who is also chairman of the German Near and Middle East Association (NUMOV), said: “With this Dubai central hub, we can further expand our bilateral co-operation with partners from the UAE and the Near and Middle East in line with our intensified globalisation strategy.”
