H. H. Sheikh Omar Bin Saqr Al Qasimi inaugurates AED 75 million ‘BUILDMART’
H. H. Sheikh Omar Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Chief of Private Department of H. H. Sheikh Saqr Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), inaugurated today ‘BUILDMART’ – an AED 75 million state-of-the-art retail complex in RAK .
Mr. Rizwan Sajan, Chairman, Danube, said, “The launch of ‘BUILDMART’ underlines Danube’s commitment to addressing the building material needs of our customers – from the most basic to the most complex, while ensuring easy and convenient access to our products. We have pooled our extensive range of high quality materials under one roof, as part of our efforts to provide better service to match the exemplary quality of our products. We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to H.H. Sheikh Omar whose strong support towards this project has largely contributed to the success of this expansion effort.”
Despite the ongoing financial crisis, Ras Al Khaimah continues to be a prime venue for economic activity and development with some of the UAE’s largest construction projects under construction in the emirate. This, in addition to projections of over 111,000 residential units slated for delivery within Dubai and Abu Dhabi by 2011, has prompted Danube to take strategic steps to address the increased demand from homeowners as well as interior design specialists for top quality building materials across the Emirates.
BUILDMART’ is only the beginning of a new phase of our strategic expansion, as we are currently looking into establishing more retail complexes in the future,” added Mr. Sajan.
The launch of ‘BUILDMART’ follows Danube‘s recent expansion through two new state-of-the-art facilities in Ajman and Al Quoz, wherein the company has invested a total of AED 55 million to address the demand for top-quality materials in the region. The AED 30 million facility in Ajman has a total area of 58,000 square feet and carries Danube’s most popular products, including wood, steel, aluminium, glass, and flooring
