Imdaad opens new workshop
Dubai, February 14, 2013
UAE-based Imdaad has opened a new mechanical workshop in Dubai for servicing and maintaining all types of vehicles, especially waste collection trucks.
Dr Rashid Ahmed Bin Fahed, UAE Minister of Environment and Water, today inaugurated the 30,000 sq m facility, located in Dubai’s Jafza South, which has been built at a cost of Dh12 million ($3.25 million) for the first phase, and is expected to reduce the overall cost of maintaining Imdaad’s fleet of more than 200 vehicles by 25 per cent, allowing the company to recover its investments within a short period of time.
Equipped with advanced maintenance and repair tools and technologies, Imdaad’s Workshop will facilitate all in-house services for denting, painting, welding and tire maintenance, and will service all types of small, medium and heavy vehicles, a statement from the workshop said.
It will include four wash bays, which have been designed to comply with environmental standards and regulations, while it has also been optimised for recycling and reuse of water. Imdaad has also revealed plans to further expand the facility in the future, utilising the entire 30,000 sq m plot it has acquired in Jafza South.
Jamal Abdulla Lootah, CEO, Imdaad, said: “The inauguration of the new workshop marks an important milestone in our continuing thrust to consolidate Imdaad’s core competencies and ultimately enhance the quality of our services.”
“The workshop drastically reduces expenditure related to maintaining and servicing Imdaad’s large fleet of vehicles, while significantly minimising vehicle downtime, resulting in a huge improvement in productivity and efficiency.”
“Moreover, the new workshop reaffirms Imdaad’s commitment to proactively invest in the latest technologies, techniques and best practices that will empower us to introduce strategic FM services that cater to the specific needs of our clients,” said Lootah.
“Imdaad will continue to leverage new technological advances and knowledge to deliver integrated FM solutions that have an immediate and direct impact on the sustainable development of the society,” he added.
Imdaad has gained a strong reputation in the region as an adopter and implementer of the latest FM technologies and practices. The company acquires eco-friendly equipment and prioritises sustainability across all its operations. – TradeArabia News Service
