Midrex has announced the opening of a new office, Midrex Technologies Gulf Services FZCO, in the Dubai Airport Free Zone (DAFZA). The establishment of this office marks a significant footprint expansion for Midrex and acknowledges the strength of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
With the abundant availability of natural gas, natural resources, and a pool of talented experts, the MENA region is a world hub for iron and steel manufacturing. Over the last decade, some of the largest and most advanced Midrex Plants have been commissioned in this region.
The decision to open this office brings Midrex closer to its clients and licensees. It expects faster response time and flexibility to strengthen relationships with the market in direct reduction ironmaking (DRI) technology.
The office will primarily support the aftermarket group, Midrex Global Solutions, with a focus on water treatment and comprehensive integrated service offerings. The expectation is that additional support and services will be conducted by the office in Dubai as the market expands.
Midrex Technologies, Inc. is headquartered in Charlotte, NC, USA with offices in the UK, India and China. It is considered the world leader in direct reduction ironmaking technology and aftermarket solutions for the steel industry.
Each year, Midrex plants produce more than 60 percent of the world’s DRI in its three forms: cold DRI (CDRI), hot DRI (HDRI), and hot briquetted iron (HBI).
