SAF-HOLLAND: Dubai business successfully started
- First deliveries from the new subsidiary
- Growth in the Middle East and North Africa accelerated
Luxembourg, October 17, 2011 - Successful start in Dubai: the local subsidiary of SAF-HOLLAND S.A., a leading supplier for the global truck and trailer industry, had already delivered the first parts to customers in the Middle East within a few weeks of being formally founded. Dubai will also supply SAF-HOLLAND replacement parts to North and Central Africa.
'The region of the Middle East and North and Central Africa is an important growth market for SAF-HOLLAND', said Alexander Geis, Head of the Aftermarket Business Unit. 'The quick acceptance of our new location proves that the founding of a subsidiary in Dubai was a step in the right direction with regard to our objective of boosting our international expansion.' SAF-HOLLAND's customers in the region benefit from shorter delivery times, better availability of parts and a simplified order process.
With sales of approximately EUR 630 million in 2010 and over 2,800 employees, SAF-HOLLAND S.A. is one of the world's leading manufacturers and suppliers of premium product systems and components primarily for trailers as well as trucks, buses and recreational vehicles.

The products are sold to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Original Equipment Suppliers (OESs) by means of a global service and distribution network and via aftermarket channels directly to the end users and service garages. SAF-HOLLAND has therefore established itself as one of the few manufacturers in its sector that is internationally positioned with an extensive product range and a broad service network.
