BRISTOL GASES LAUNCHES PRODUCTION OF NON-REFILLABLE GAS CYLINDERS AT NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART DUBAI FACILITY
Dubai-based production to cut lead times and simplify logistics. Company expects move to double sales over next 12 months.
Bristol Gases, part of the Concorde-Corodex Group, has launched the UAE’s first state-of-the-art manufacturing plant producing non-refillable gas cylinders.
It represents a major expansion of the company’s capabilities from stocking and trading the product into fully-fledged production at its newly expanded laboratory and production facility in Al Quoz, Dubai. For years, Bristol Gases has been a leading supplier to the oil and gas, chemical, laboratory and the marine sector locally and globally, proudly supplying various customers such as ADNOC, ENOC, Baker Hughes, and Schlumberger.
In a significant development for the local industry, a product classified as ‘dangerous goods’ is now produced locally, at the first of its kind cutting-edge filling facility and laboratory for disposable cylinders, lessening the need for a complicated global logistics process.
“We firmly believe that this move will position Bristol Gases as one of the leading suppliers of calibration gas mixtures and disposable calibration gas cylinders in the Middle East region,” said Mohanned Awad, Regional Director of Business Development at Concorde – Corodex Group. “We’re expecting it to result in a doubling of our sales over the next year.
“The fact that this product is now made locally has major consequences for the industry. With our superior service and local stocking, the lead time for customers is dramatically reduced.”
Mark McCann, Business Unit Manager, Bristol Gases, added: “We made the decision to expand into production here in Dubai because of its pivotal geographical location. This positions Bristol Gases as a key supplier in the entire region and beyond, expanding our capability to supply within the UAE, as well as GCC and Asian countries.
“We’re proud to say that ours is the first state-of-the-art filling facility and laboratory for disposable cylinders. We also plan to have hubs in Singapore and Australia for global customers.”
