Dubai-based global auto parts trader A-MAP is moving into a new facility in Jebel Ali to keep up with phenomenal growth and demand.
The company expected to grow by 25 per cent this year, which they achieved before the end of fourth quarter and A-MAP remain buoyant to repeat the feat in 2013, largely due to its thriving export markets.
Car manufacturers are seeing unprecedented demand with marquee brands like BMW recording 14 per cent growth in Q3 alone and with vehicle populations across Middle East and Africa increasing exponentially, A-MAP on track to meet its annual turnover target of Dhs1 billion by 2015.
“We’ve seen a surge in demand for our services and products from across the region, and our new 1600,000 square feet warehouse in Jebel Ali, where we will set up operations in 2013, will enable us to scale up accordingly,” said Asad Badami, managing director of A-MAP.
“2012 saw immense organisational re-structuring within A-MAP as we continue to grow, and in 2013 we will be investing heavily to increasing A-MAP’s operational excellence to facilitate increasing customer demand.”
Moves are already underway to expand its global logistical operations, particularly in its growing North and South African markets.
