Energy International Corporation (EIC),a leader for more than 30 years, in the design, supply and installation of HVAC and electro-mechanical equipment to major construction projects throughout the Middle East and North Africa, announces the opening of a regional office in the country of Kuwait.
EIC with headquarters in Canton, Michigan, USA, has more than 175 employees working out of regional offices throughout the Middle East in Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The corporation currently supports divisions covering Industrial/HVAC, Building Management Systems, Parking and Transportation, Aerospace and Renewable Energy and has recently added a division focusing on the supply and installation of air purification and clean room technologies.
“Opening an office in Kuwait is a logical next step in expanding our products and services throughout the region,” said Allie Bazzy, President, Energy International Corporation. “Our aspirations have always been to look for markets where we see a potential to grow. The Kuwaiti construction market is one of the biggest markets in the GCC region.”
The Middle East’s third largest oil producer is in the beginning stages of a four-year, multi-billion-dollar infrastructure makeover. The Kuwaiti Ministry of Health announced last year that it is funding the construction of 11 new hospitals with a capacity of more than 4,000 beds. In October of 2011, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Public Works announced a USD$2.1 billion plan for expansion of the Kuwait International Airport, building a new terminal and nearly doubling the size of the facility. The Ministry of Public Works also recently confirmed an additional 300 projects are under way at an annual cost of USD$1.8 billion, as part of the State Development Strategy.
Initially, EIC Kuwait will be staffed by two sales engineers working out of offices at Allied Technologies Co. (ATC), headquartered in Safat, Kuwait. ATC, founded in 2006 under the patronage of Mr. Hassib Madi, founder and Chairman, provides products and services to electromechanical and plumbing contractors and consultants throughout Kuwait.
The company supplies a wide array of products including Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, refrigeration, plumbing and fire fighting systems from a list of certified, quality international manufacturers. ATC lists an extensive and diversified project portfolio including Public Utilities, Business and Shopping Centers, Automotive and Food Industry Applications, Hotels, Restaurants, Airports and Hospitals.
