HMS Networks, a Swedish company in the field of industrial communications listed on the Nasdaq Nordic stock exchange, has opened a new sales and support office in Dubai as part of its expansion into the Middle East.
HMS has been doing business in the region through distributors and sales support from Sweden and Spain for several years and there are already many Anybus, IXXAT, eWON, and Intesis products used by customers in the area. The new office will be responsible for an enlarged GCC region.
The company said construction activity and global initiatives such as Expo 2020 and the World Cup of Soccer are driving market growth in the Middle East. A local presence would help HMS get close to end users of its products and enabling it to ensure that the latest technologies are used when new construction and infrastructure projects are rolled out, it said.
