Dubai, February 4, 2010
Airbus Middle East has signed a two-year contract to provide administration and business centre services to Haas Mena-India, a global chemical management services company, at their Dubai Airport Freezone (DAFZ) premises.
Haas TCM streamlines and manages the chemical life cycle for customers with superior and innovative supply chain, process, and information management systems.
"Haas Mena-India FZE is pleased to have signed a lease with Airbus Middle East for office space that will serve as our sales and operations centre,” said Stan L Klocek, Jr, executive vice president.
"This marks the strengthening of the Haas Mena-India FZE relationship with Airbus Middle East and our new establishment will be the cornerstone of our operations throughout the Middle East Region,” he added.
"Working closely with Airbus is a key part of the overall expansion of our business of providing chemical supply chain and management services to the aerospace industry."
Joerg Helmerichs, senior director of the Airbus Material and Logistics Centre, said the signing of the contract marks the beginning of a long-term commercial relationship between the two companies.
“We are proud of the confidence displayed by Haas TCM in joining our Vendor Village, a partnership that reinforces Airbus’ commitment to serve the airline industry in the Middle East,” he added.
The Airbus Material and Logistics Centre at the Dubai Airport Free Zone was officially opened in April 2008, giving Airbus closer access to customers and creating a quicker response to their needs.
“The Dubai Airport Freezone management congratulates Airbus parts distribution and Haas Mena-India FZE on their new partnership that is expected to enhance the ability of both companies to do business in the Middle East,” said Nasser Madani, assistant director General of the Dubai Airport Freezone. – TradeArabia News Service
