Glenbeigh Records Management (GRM) has officially opened its facility at Dubai World Central (DWC), the world’s first purpose-built aerotropolis.

The firm has invested Dh25 million ($6.8 million) in a 70,000 sq ft, purpose-built facility built by its sister company Glenbeigh Construction. The site offers state-of-the-art storage solutions and advanced security systems guaranteed to protect corporate information assets.

Philip Earle, founder and chairman, Glenbeigh Group, said: “We are very pleased to continue our international growth with the official launch of our Dubai operations, and honoured to receive the support of Sheikh Ahmed and Prime Minister Enda Kenny in our efforts.

“We expect to see significant growth in revenue over the next few years, enabling the company to create jobs for the local Emirati population, as well as generate an anticipated 25 jobs in Ireland as a result of our Middle East expansion. We have already been able to hire a number of new Irish employees across the wider Glenbeigh Group who have been involved in the design and construction of the DWC facility and we look forward to developing ties further between the two countries.”

The opening took place in the presence of Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation, and Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who was visiting the UAE as part of a trade mission to the Middle East.

Sheikh Ahmed commented: “We aim to encourage more Irish enterprises to discover the wealth of opportunities that await them in DWC, Dubai and the whole of the UAE.”

Kenny said: “It is very exciting to see an Irish company like Glenbeigh Records Management achieve so much in such a competitive market.”

GRM is part of the Glenbeigh Group.
