Published on 15 September 2019
It is easy to get lost in the buzz words which orbit around the manufacturing industry regarding the new technology which continues to flood the market. Such rapid change is putting factory owners in a difficult position when planning for the long term by posing a new series of risks regarding investments in product, production, logistics, & the people which support them.
Since 2017, we have been collaborating with the School of Architecture & Engineering of Fribourg in a joint venture.

Celebrating 1 year of bringing innovation to the UAE
a look back on 1-year of client onboarding experiences in the Middle East
Published on 25 April 2019 by Andrew Lenti, Managing Director
A little over a year ago, we learnt that no deal of relevant significance will ever be concluded virtually and that the handshake is still one of the key building blocks to the foundation necessary in forging a long term business relationship of trust, value and mutual satisfaction. This is especially true in the Middle Eastern culture where traditions passed from prior generations when doing business are still very much alive.
In April of 2018 we were invited by the Dubai-based Management Team of the M.A.H.Y. Khoory Group, pioneers in green energy, paper recycling and water pump technology across the United Arab Emirates to spend a week on site meeting the team to brainstorm, get to know each other, and finalise our long-term service model together with the architects of the deal, our trusted UAE product ambassador Gazelles Management Consulting.
Looking back one year later at the results, the relationships built and the never-ending creativity of a dynamic project team bringing to market a one-of-a-kind continuous improvement business solution across multiple cities and business lines still doesnt cease to amaze us.Read our story here
