Dulsco expands RAK operations
Ras Al Khaimah, September 17, 2011
Dulsco, a leading provider of manpower and recruitment solutions, said it has expanded its operations in Ras Al Khaimah to meet the rising demand for skilled manpower from companies setting up base in the emirate and also Umm Al Quwain.
In Ras Al Khaimah, Dulsco addresses the manpower needs of industry verticals such as cement industries, steel industries, manufacturing companies, hospitality industry, telecommunication, mining and quarries and others, said a statement from Dulsco.
Additionally, it also provides engineering services, stevedoring, onshore and offshore tank cleaning and aims to start waste management services in the near future, it added.
Recognizing RAK's potential as an important business hub, Dulsco entered the emirate in 2006 with a smaller operation. However, the rapid growth of the market has driven the company to expand its operations to include other verticals.
Ras Al Khaimah’s successful experiment with free zones has attracted international companies to set up their own presence in the emirate.
Till date, more than 5,000 companies operate from the Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone Authority (RAK FTZ) and 4,170 business licenses have been issued by the Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority (RAKIA). Additionally, newer free zones such as Maritime City are also luring global investors to the region.
The emirate’s growing international profile as an important business destination was highlighted when it hosted the World Free Zone Convention 2010 last year – the first ever summit of its kind in the Middle East.
George Samuel, Manager, Dulsco-RAK said, 'Our clients’ demand for skilled manpower and recruitment for their operations has increased four-fold since we entered Ras Al Khaimah – a clear indication of the rapid transformation of the region’s economy over the past five years.'
'It is therefore imperative for us to increase our own capabilities in order to meet that demand,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
