Doha-based Tadmur Group and the OCS Group, a British family-owned facilities service company, have launched a facilities management joint venture, the tradearabia website reported today.
“The highly regarded and respected Tadmur brand has been built over the past 27 years,” said Dafer Hallawa, Tadmur Holding CEO. “With nine successful subsidiary companies I feel there is enormous opportunity to jointly leverage the existing Tadmur businesses with the new OCS facilities management business.
“OCS Qatar will be well positioned to take advantage of the planned US$130 billion Qatar infrastructure spending over the next five years.”
This is the OCS Group’s first business venture in the Middle East, although it operates in 29 other countries around the world.
OCS Group chief executive Chris Cracknell said: “This joint venture is a key part of our international growth plans. It combines Tadmur’s established businesses and network with OCS’s international experience in delivering facilities services and brings the valued OCS brand and our class-leading systems and service levels to new markets.
“As 2012 continues we will continue to develop joint ventures and acquisitions to strengthen our capabilities and extend our ability to deliver world-class facilities management on an international basis.”
