Neumann & Müller Event Technology
Neumann & Müller Event Technology moved in to their new offices and warehouse in Dubai Investments Park 1 in the last quarter of the year 2018. Obtaining these new premises was a tactical move to service their clients better who are spread around the region as it is centrally located between the two major event hubs - Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Rick Wade, General Manager for N&M Dubai explained, “We had outgrown our old home of 11 years and it was important for us to respond to our clients’ needs and integrate them more in keeping with the type of work that we do. So, we designed an office space which will enable our clients and our project teams to work together in a comfortable and creative environment.”
The size of the entire facility is almost double their previous one. The office area is open plan, which is great for keeping everyone informed about what’s going on in the company day-to-day. The meeting and conference rooms were purpose-built, so the teams can work together on their latest projects and sit with their clients and project partners to discuss strategic planning for their specific needs. The warehouse is also big enough to set up demos and mock ups to previsualise projects that their partners have conceptualised.
Rick added, “This move is a part of the expansion plan that we have in mind as we take this business to the next level. We have several new members to our team, as well. One of them is Abigail Bates, who is our new technical Project Manager. She has lived and worked in Dubai for the last seven years and had a very successful career as a lighting designer before moving into technical management. We are very excited about these improvements and cannot wait to accommodate more clients here.”
In line with raising the game in this industry, N&M responded with a comprehensive upgrade of their existing technology, training of staff to keep up with the latest development and increase in their stock levels this summer. Along with the lighting fixtures, the biggest investment was the 1.8 mm LED screens - one of the highest resolution displays in the market - which takes presentations and video content to a higher and dynamic level.
They have recently opened their doors to their clients and industry peers to have a peek at their new premises and inventory. The warehouse and the offices were transformed into a mini event venue featuring some special equipment which was well-received by their guests.
Early this year, N&M launched the system integration division, which is also based in this new facility. This unit is responsible for the semi-permanent and permanent AVL system integration in the region targeting the expo productions, together with other global installation projects.
Felix Erdmann, business unit manager commented, “This new location is perfect for our business as we are not only in the middle of the two key Emirates, we are also just around the corner from the Dubai EXPO 2020 site. This was a strategic step to support and help realise expo projects with ease.”
