Marvair opens Middle East office in Dubai

Marvair announced the opening of a Dubai office to better serve its marine customers in the Middle East.

“Dubai is the center of business and the focus of the marine industry in the Middle East,” Marvair Marine managing director Trevor Goldsmith said in a statement. “Some of the world’s leading builders are located in the Emirates and to properly advise and assist them a full-time presence was required. We decided that an office in this maritime center was needed as our marine business continues to grow.”

The office in Dubai has the added benefit of being only seven hours from Europe and seven hours from the expanding Chinese market.

“Our facility is perfectly located at the entrance to Al Jadaf Shipyard, part of Drydocks World and Maritime World, one of the region's leading service providers,” Goldsmith said in a statement. “Teaming with Saeed Mohammed Al Ghandi and Sons for direct sales and Marina Yacht Maintenance for full turnkey installation and supply of equipment provides our customers access to the full complement of Marvair Marine services and equipment.”

Marvair, a division of Airxcel, is a manufacturer of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning products for marine applications, telecommunication enclosures, school classrooms and commercial modular structures.
