Andrews Sykes and the United Arab Emirates: Going from strength to strength

The UAE has been an important part of Western Asia, and the global economy for much of the modern era, especially so since the discovery of oil in the 1950’s. Variously influenced by Portugal, The Ottoman Empire and until quite recently, Britain, the UAE is considered one of the most developed economies in the world.

Recognising that despite recent challenges, causing slowdown in some activities such as construction, the Emirates remain a vibrant and strong market, Andrews Sykes has continued to invest in our presence there, through Andrews Sykes Climate Rental. There are certainly encouraging signs as our business in the region continues to be strong

An impressive range of dehumidifiers, air conditioning equipment, chillers and air handlers is maintained in the 3 locations at Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharja, servicing a wide range of applications including events, leisure, hotels, retail and of course the oil and gas industries – both major elements of the local economy. Recent events have certainly benefited from the introduction of new products such as high performance mist fans, and smart use of some proven technologies

All of this is part of our ambition and aspiration to ensure wherever our clients are, we are there too, with whatever they need, whenever they need it
