Fort Lauderdale. FL (PRWEB) September 12, 2008
Parkson Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Axel Johnson Inc, announced today the official inauguration of a new regional office to support its growing business in the Middle East and North Africa.
The new office, located in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, will be officially inaugurated in October 2008. Parkson's past success in this growing region has prompted the decision to open a permanent office in Dubai complete with sales, applications engineering, and field service support capabilities.
In addition, Parkson also announced the receipt of its first purchase order since the establishment of its new office in July of this year. In August 2008, Parkson received an order from Saudi ARAMCO in Dharan, Kingdom Saudi Arabia, where Parkson's solutions will be treating domestic wastewater.
Parkson Middle East will be responsible for all countries in Middle East and Northern Africa, offering a wide range of superior, cost-effective components and systems for water and wastewater treatment. Some of Parkson's most successful products, in screenings, biological treatment, secondary and tertiary treatments and biosolids reduction/minimization will be marketed through this office.
Zain Mahmood, President and CEO of Parkson, will be present in the official inauguration of the Parkson ME office October 9, 2008 as well as Sean DSilva, International Vice President of Parkson, and Tony Collins, General Manager of Parkson ME.
"As the first leg of our global expansion, we are excited about our new office in Dubai" said CEO Mahmood. "This region, with significant water stress and need, is an ideal market for Parkson's extended line of products in water and wastewater treatment and provides a tremendous opportunity for Parkson to be successful in helping this region reuse water in a sustainable manner for the long term."
Parkson, a leading provider of innovative and industry-leading products in water and wastewater treatment technology, has been focusing its efforts on expanding globally. In addition to its offices in the USA and Canada, and partners in South America and Asia, Parkson obtained a trade license from the Department of Economic Development of United Arabic Emirates in July 2008 and will be settling into office quarters in Dubai.
