RWI wins Saadiyat Island contract
Abu Dhabi, March 14, 2010
Rubber World Industries (RWI), a leading manufacturer of closed-cell rubber insulation 'Gulf-O-flex' in the Gulf and South-East Asia, said it has won a major insulation contract at ‘Saadiyat Island’ in Abu Dhabi.
RWI, a part of Shaikhani Group of Companies, said the deal involved the delivery of rubber insulation products worth Dh600,000 ($163,372) for ‘Manarat Al Saadiyat’, one of Saadiyat Island's components, which will encompass four major galleries, an experience and sales centre, a 250-seat theatre and a restaurant.
Among the products delivered by RWI for the 15,400 sq. metre visitor centre were ‘Gulf-O-Flex’ Rubber insulation tubes, rubber insulation sheets, PVC black tape and ‘Gulf-O-Glue’, the company said.
“Our products have become the leading choice for high profile developments in the UAE, and we are proud to be a supplier and a part of a pioneering development such as the ‘Saadiyat Island’ project,” said Abu Baker Shaikhani, RWI chairman.
“We are confident that our products will meet the project’s requirements, which are focused on reducing costs and energy consumption. We intend to leverage this as we look into securing more deals and partnerships with leading developers of massive mega projects, in line with our aims to increase our share of the regional market,” he added.
Literally translated as ‘a place that provides enlightenment’ in Arabic, ‘Manarat Al Saadiyat’ has opened its first phase to the public in November 2009 to serve as an exciting artistic venue by housing international exhibitions from around the world.
Among the main galleries within the project are the ‘Arts Abu Dhabi Gallery’ and the ‘Central Events Gallery’, in addition to dedicated spaces for internationally renowned museums, which are set to open by April 2010 - the ‘Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Gallery’ and the ‘Louvre Abu Dhabi Gallery’.
Furthermore, it also features ‘The Saadiyat Story’ - an interactive experience centre that brings to life the historical and cultural vision behind ‘Saadiyat Island’ as well as future developments within the project.-TradeArabia News Service
