Exova Warringtonfire, the specialist fire engineering, testing and certification provider, has announced its latest expansion in Doha, the capital city of Qatar. The move further establishes the company as one of the region’s leading providers of fire safety expertise.
With established operations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Exova Warringtonfire has opened its new Qatar fire consultancy business, creating an initial five new skilled roles. The Qatar consultancy, the first independent global fire engineering specialist to establish in the city, will offer fire safety engineering and inspection.
Stuart Kerr, Exova Warringtonfire’s General Manager in the Middle East, said:
“Motivated by customer demand, this expansion will allow us to service a growing number of customers in Qatar that require technically demanding fire engineering services, and to support the Qatar Civil Defence Department.
“A mood of improved economic confidence has resulted in a rapid growth of development and investment in the region, and this, coupled with an increased focus on fire safety and regulation at a Government level, means that the time is right to formalise a presence on the ground.
“The Doha facility will significantly strengthen our Middle East offer, and underlines the recognition by our customers in the region that Exova Warringtonfire is a leader in its field.”
With extensive infrastructure investment in the country, including developments for the football World Cup in 2022, Exova Warringtonfire, which leads the market in fire engineering for mass transit facilities, is already working on buildings, stadia and metro systems to implement and engineer fire safety strategies.
