Rhino are delighted to announce the signing of a Partnering Agreement with British Aluminium LLC who are based in Doha, Qatar. Signed during a recent visit to the region, this important strategic alliance represents the first stage of Rhino’s export initiatives in the area, with further alliances expected to be announced in the near future.
British Aluminium will represent Rhino and are also expected to collaborate on a number of future projects. Specifically, British Aluminium will focus on Rhino’s expanding range of large, bespoke doors, incorporating acoustic, fire, Pressure and blast protection. Target market areas include major infrastructure projects as well as security services, defence and petrochemical projects, utilising Rhino’s expertise providing bespoke oversized and blast rated doors as well as Rhino’s patented arch profile blast wall solutions that is used predominantly in the oil & gas industry.
Commenting on the Partnering Agreement, Managing Director, Stuart Lawrence said “This is an incredibly important first step for Rhino to establish a permanent presence in the region through our partners at British Aluminium and is well timed given some recent export contracts awarded to Rhino within Qatar. Through British Aluminium’s extensive network of contacts within the broader region, we are looking forward to expanding our presence in the area, fully aligned with our strategic growth plan”.
Mr Richard Astin, Managing Director for British Aluminium stated “British Aluminium is proud to be partnering with Rhino Doors in Qatar & the Middle East. The vast range of Rhino’s unique products will dovetail perfectly with our Fire & Bullet proof door and window ranges. We have been building our business in Qatar & GCC for 6 years & have found that being a British managed company has opened so many otherwise ‘closed’ doors. There is a distinct lack of expertise in this region that together with Rhino, we are well placed to benefit from. We also have a 6,000m2 factory, showroom and offices where Rhino Doors products can be exhibited, meetings held and even warehousing provided if needed”.
