Kingsbury starts trading in the Middle East

British turnkey production solution provider, Kingsbury, has been granted a trading license to sell and service its principals’ machine tools in the Middle East, Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region. Kingsbury Machine Tools DWC-LLC became a legal entity on 8th May and is based at Office Number 513, Building A3, PO Box 36687, Dubai, UAE. Telephone +971 50 445 1073.

The wholly-owned subsidiary is headed by Regional Director & General Manager, Neil Harrington, who has long experience working in senior management positions in the Middle East.

The machines being marketed are from Kingsbury’s three divisions – LPM (large prismatic machines), MTG (milling turning grinding) and AM (additive manufacturing) – and are being offered for sale in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait.

Richard Kingsbury, managing director of Kingsbury commented, “We are delighted to be up and running in the GCC. Our strategy will be to transfer to this new market the same business model that has proved very successful for more than 60 years in the UK and Ireland. Until now, these were the only markets covered by the agency agreements between us and the machine tool manufacturers we represent.

“They are all leaders in their respective fields, which means we are able to provide customers with optimal production platforms in a wide range of industries, from the smallest medical component to the largest power generation part.

“We are looking forward to bringing the same technology to the Middle East. To facilitate this, we will be recruiting and training highly professional sales, applications and service engineers to deliver manufacturing solutions that provide the lowest end-to-end cost per part coupled with the highest accuracy, reliability and repeatability.
