Temporary storage structure specialist Losberger appoints new GCC MD
Temporary storage and event structure and semi-permanent buildings specialist Losberger De Boer has appointed a new managing director for its operations across the Middle East, Central Asia and Russia.
Jim Muldoon, who will be based in the Dubai regional headquarters, brings more than twenty years’ strategic and business development experience together with extensive understanding of Gulf markets through his work in various senior management roles throughout the GCC.
With previous management experience across retail, building design, fit-out and modular building industries, Muldoon brings his proven operational capability to Losberger De Boer, with a reputation for driving business forward while maintaining high levels of client satisfaction.
Capitalising on the ever-growing trend towards temporary building usage across the Middle East, Losberger De Boer has designed and developed a high-specification, semi-permanent building concept which is driving significant growth over and above its core event structure rental business.
Muldoon stated his intention to build upon this strong market position and the company’s pioneering background in this field.
“Offering bespoke, design-led temporary and semi-permanent building solutions that can be tailored to individual client requirements and delivered in record-breaking time is our key objective,” Muldoon said on taking over the new position.
“The Gulf market remains highly receptive to the Losberger De Boer rapid build concept and our world class standards. In addition to our range of over 70 systemised temporary event structures – all of which are European-manufactured and ISO-certified - we are excited to continue rolling out our next generation of semi-permanent buildings that look and feel like permanent buildings, but can be built in weeks and not months or years.”
“Crucially, our clients can start trading almost immediately on new sites while providing the flexibility to relocate at short notice if and when business circumstances change,” he added.
Sustainability is a key feature of Losberger De Boer’s temporary building concept. Given most models are already factory manufactured and are relocatable, temporary structure use is a zero carbon choice compared to a new permanent building.
Furthermore, the latest insulation technology deployed produces a 40 per cent decrease in power use for HVAC, compared to more traditional temporary structures, further driving substantial economic and environmental benefits for customers.
“I’m proud to now be leading such a progressive, environmentally-friendly building solution company. We plan to increase our temporary warehouse, mobile airport and relocatable aircraft hangar business in the Middle East, Central Asia and Russia, as well as our specialist government and military Rapid Deployment System offering,” said Muldoon.
Muldoon’s past achievements have included achieving year-on-year revenue of over US$100 million through implementing a range of operational management strategies while working for a major UK-based retail group leading 770 staff.
Originally from Scotland, Muldoon worked for several major international brands, such as Max, Matalan and Safeway while in the UK before relocating to the Middle East.
