Bahraini firm focuses on technology
Manama , September 18, 2007
M H Al Mahroos has taken the lead in focusing the construction industry's attention on the need to upgrade technology.
The company's managing director Hassan Mohammed Al Mahroos organised a technology presentation at the company showroom in Salhiya which was attended by representatives from the Labour Fund.
Established in 1930, M A Al Mahroos Co, a pioneering tools and construction industry equipment supplier, has grown over the years to become one of the leading companies in Bahrain.
'In light of the construction boom in the country, demand for furniture and interior elements such as doors, kitchen cabinets and wardrobes as well as tables and chairs etc is on the increase. If Bahraini companies that manufacture such items are to benefit from the boom, they have to fulfill the high quality emphasis and be able to produce large quantities within a short delivery period,' said Al Mahroos.
In order to do so, furniture workshops and factories in Bahrain should upgrade machinery, equipment and the skills of their workers, al Mahroos added.
Labour Fund representatives Eva Hassan and Dr Ehsan Ghurbal gave a presentation on how the Fund's Technical Assistance Programme (TAP) is designed to meet exactly such challenges.
Conceived as a key element of the LF's ambitious Enterprise Development Support Programme (EDS), the scheme is a co-financing one designed to support Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to make the conversion from reliance on cheap labour towards greater utilisation of advanced equipment and technology.
This will help to reduce work costs, increase production capacity, and enrich job opportunities for Bahrainis.
The Labour Fund is a semi-autonomous yet independent authority, which formulates strategic and operational plans to use the fees collected from work levies, in order to enhance the overall prosperity of Bahrain by investing in Bahraini employability, job creation, and social support.Trade Arabia News Service
