Warehouse door maker Hormann opens new production line in JAFZA
Hormann has opened a new 4,800-sq-m production line at Jebel Ali Freezone in Dubai, marking its tenth year of operations in the Middle East.
With a capacity to produce 35,000 doors a year, the new facility will redefine Hormann’s operations in the region, said a statement from the company, which produces industrial, commercial and residential doors.
Jafza CEO Muhammed Al Muallem officially opened the production line in the presence of Martin Hormann, the managing partner of Hormann; Darius Khanloo, the director of Middle East and Africa, Hormann Middle East and Africa and other senior officials.
The new factory will serve the demand from all GCC countries and Africa and will enable Hormann to customise doors for regional customers.
"With the opening of our new production facility, we will now have more flexibility with delivery time, it usually takes six weeks if ordered directly from Germany and now it will only take about a week," said Darius Khanloo, director, Hormann Middle East and Africa.
"Our Jafza factory can produce hinged doors, such as fire-rated doors, security doors, internal doors and multi-purpose doors, all based on German standards. Our doors meet the requirements of regional Civil Defense authorities as safety of our customers is very important to us," he added.
"All Hörmann factories employ the most advanced technology. Microprocessor-controlled machinery guarantees the accuracy of all of the production processes, while stringent in-house monitoring ensures consistently high product quality," said Martin Hormann, the managing partner of Hormann.
"With Hormann fire-rated doors, customers are assured of decades of quality, protection and safety. Offering both exquisite appearance and optimum fire protection Hormann doors are used in industrial and public buildings, villas, apartment compounds, hospitals and at airports," he added.
