Date:April 10 2018


Our new regional office in the Middle East - NVC Lighting Middle East FZE - was officially opened on November 5th 2017 with a meeting of local NVC staff and representatives from Huizhou,China.


Opening date: Nov 5th 2017

Location:  PO Box 342146, Techno 

Hub 2, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Dubai, 

United Arab Emirates

Company name: NVC Lighting Middle East FZE

Land line: +971 (0)43 450 644

Mobile: +971 (0)502 734 079

Attn: James HUNTER JOHNSTON

Email:james.hunterjohnston@nvc-lighting.com



The office is the base for NVC Lighting Middle East FZE, and it is located at the Dubai Silicon Oasis, a free-zone in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The function of the office is to provide technical and marketing support to the local offices we already have in the region.



The construction sector in the Middle East is large, with booming demand for hotels, retail space and residential property, so the demand for lighting is buoyant.  



Our local offices, largely staffed by ex-NVC employees, have built a solid foundation for future growth through their operations in Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, but we can achieve more through targeted marketing, presenting the strengths of NVC to a wider market, and developing closer links with head-office to be sure they know the detailed product requirements of the local market.

Personnel

James W HUNTER JOHNSTON General Manager


James is the General Manager of NVC's Middle East Office (NVC Lighting Middle East FZE). He has worked for NVC since 2009, first at NVC Lighting in the UK before being asked to come to the Middle East in 2017. He is now based here full-time, with his wife, and is focused on building up NVC’s business in the region. 


Abhinav SANGAR - Technical Manager


Abhinav joined NVC in January 2018 in the role of Technical Manager. Most recently he worked in a technical capacity for Feilo Sylvania in Dubai, so he has good lighting and local knowledge.  He is fluent in English, Hindi and Punjabi – languages that many of our customers speak. His main functions are to improve the communication about the local market and its product requirements to head office, and to improve communication the other way too – from head office to the local offices.

 

The next step for the Dubai office is to recruit a marketing manager, and the search has already started.
