Smart representing Vortex in MENA region
Smart is a well-known Middle Eastern supplier for dedusting systems including industrial ventilations systems, shut off valves, loading spouts and filters.

"Smart has the ability to provide our customers in the MENA region with any type of equipment for mineral industries including the cement, potash and phosphate industries," says Laurence Millington, Vortex Director of International Business. "We are delighted to have Smart represent us now and going into the future.”

Demographic explosions in the MENA region has increased the demand for reconstruction of infrastructure and public housing, which both require cement. New cement companies have been added, while the existing cement plants have been converted to operate on alternative fuels. Smart has a long history of consulting and contracting cement plant operations in the Middle East. Its knowledgeable team of experienced cement engineers and technical experts is experienced in the local and neighbor markets.

"We strive to be the first specialized technical center in the Middle East serving the cement industry,” says Mohammed Yacoub, Smart Managing Director. "Adding Vortex to our product line will help us to provide superior consultations, engineered products, and maintenance services for everyone involved.”

IBC representing Vortex in UAE
IBC is a portal company who utilises local knowledge of developing projects to integrate global partners into the local Omani market.

“IBC’s aim is to be one of the top companies for agreements to hold business licenses to expand in Oman and UAE,” says Rey Acurantes, IBC Business Development Manager. “We are able to mobilise within these regions at short notice and provide service for our global clients who wish to invest in these countries. We like to develop tailored sustainable solutions that integrate quality systems into the culture and practices of an organisation.”

The UAE is currently diversifying its sources of income as oil prices continue to lower across the globe. The Ministry of Economy hope to increase the manufacturing industry sectors to absorb the financial shock of the current oil prices. Projects in base metals, chemicals, food and beverages, machinery, rubber and plastics, cement, glass, and wood are planned to help the UAE economy

"IBC is able to easily identify the challenges of the market in Oman and the Emirates," says Millington. "Being a dry bulk components company, this is an exceptionally good time to enter the Middle Eastern markets. IBC has the expertise to get us there. We are excited to have two well-established firms representing Vortex.”
