On 3 June 2021, the GF Corys Fabrication Workshop in Abu Dhabi, the first customizing and prefabrication facility in the Middle East region, was officially inaugurated. GF Group CEO Andreas Mueller, together with GF Piping Systems Division President Joost Geginat and Mohammed Abdulghaffar Hussain, the owner of Corys Group, welcomed H.E. Massimo Baggi, Ambassador of Switzerland, to the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to the official opening.
The joint venture business between GF Piping Systems and Corys will deliver best-in-class, sustainable solutions, on time, everywhere in the region. GF now operates prefabrication workshops in 11 countries to increase its proximity to customers and help them overcome time constraints, cost overruns, physical space limitations, and quality concerns on the job site. The designs of projects to be fulfilled in these workshops are previously approved by the three engineering offices that complement the network.
“Our global network of prefabrication workshops has engineered and delivered more than 1200 projects in the last year and created over 400 new solutions with associated quality assurances to answer the demand from our customers,” said GF Piping Systems’ President Joost Geginat. “We can apply a standardized approach in all of our fab shops globally to deliver the same quality and support wherever needed, anywhere in the world. So whether that project is related to data centers, water treatment, or even microelectronics, where cleanroom technology is required, we are ready when you are.”
Mohammed Abdulghaffar Hussain from Corys states: “We are very proud of the longstanding partnership between GF and Corys. The opening of our ‘state of the art’ facility in Abu Dhabi marks yet another important milestone in the continued development of the partnership, enabling us to deliver our joint strategic goals. The joint venture operation will undoubtedly open up new business opportunities for us in a number of key markets in the Gulf states and will allow us to showcase our unrivalled capabilities in the field of prefabrication and customization and provide superior customer value.”
