CLIMAX, the leading global manufacturer of portable machining, welding, and advanced valve testing systems and H&S Tool, the top brand in tube/pipe cutting and beveling tools, have opened a new facility in Dubai, creating the most complete and versatile line of high-quality portable machining, welding, and valve testing solutions under one roof in the Middle East.
CLIMAX also announced the hiring of Rani Musallam, Sales and Service Manager and Ian Hume, Key Account Manager for Rentals & Distribution. Rani will be leading the Middle East operation, as an industry expert with years of sales and operational experience in the Oil and Gas market. Ian comes to CLIMAX with several years of customer service and rental industry experience.
Mr. Germar Helbig, Regional Director of Europe & Middle East, comments: “We are very excited about the hiring of Rani and Ian, as they are impressive individuals that will deliver on our promise to provide customers with an outrageously good experience – every interaction, every time, everywhere! The combination of CLIMAX, H&S Tool, BORTECH and CALDER truly separates the CLIMAX Group as the number one company in the Middle East in our industry, with the most complete and versatile line of products, the best customer service, the most experience, the highest quality and the best talent in the business.”
This new location will complement Safe Technical Supply Co, CLIMAX’s Middle East distributor. Mr. Aliasgar Taheri, Executive VP for Safe Technical Supply Co, says “We have enjoyed our partnership with CLIMAX over the past decade. Having local support really shows CLIMAX’s commitment to the customers in the Middle East. Safetech’s experience and in-house capabilities
will continue to play a leading role for CLIMAX’s growth, and we are very excited to help CLIMAX continue its global expansion in this market.”
Mr. Helbig adds: “This move shows CLIMAX’s commitment to the Middle East as a key market for our products and services. We are investing in this new facility, additional staff, our rental fleet, inventory of equipment and spare parts, and everything else our customers need for fast, friendly, expert service for all CLIMAX portable machine tools, BORTECH welding systems, H&S pipe/tube cutting and prep equipment, and CALDER valve test systems – whether for purchase, rental, spare parts, cutting bits and blades, training, consultation, custom-designed solutions, or expert repair and maintenance of the equipment. We are excited about this – it is the first phase of investment, with a second phase planned for the near future.”
