Dubai ship repairer 'pride over winning award'

Posted by Bob Brunskill

A recent business accolade could make those with a commercial property in Dubai proud.

The Ship Repair/Shipyard award recognises high levels of productivity within the field and was given to Drydocks World – Dubai this month.

Nawal Saigal, managing director for the winning company, said: "Safety, efficiency and high productivity are our priorities.

"It's gratifying to be honoured for our core corporate values. Receiving this award repeatedly reflects our enduring strength and capability."

He added that the achievement was a celebration of the company's strategic investments in not just state-of-the-art technology, but their people as well.

Drydocks World has been in existence for 26 years and is regarded as one of the fastest growing shipbuilders and repairers internationally.

Its Dubai facility is claimed to be one of the "most modern" of its kind between the Far East and Europe.

This will be the third occasion that the company has been winners of the title, which this year was awarded at the 7th Seatrade Middle East and Indian Subcontinent Awards. The Safety and Quality Award for the event was sponsored by Drydocks World for 2009.
