OW Hospitality, manufacturer of the highest quality Axminster and hand tufted carpets and area rugs, announced today that the company is further positioned to lead the hospitality carpet industry for the entire Middle East and Africa region. In fact, the company has committed itself to the area by further developing its management, design staff, and sales support in their Dubai office to provide additional service to the Gulf Countries.
OW Hospitality is a global player holding offices in six cities worldwide currently, including Dubai and Cairo. Already a respected carpet manufacturer on a global scale, OWH has recently installed carpet in several hotels throughout Sochi, Russia, the site for the 2014 Winter Olympics, as well as for multiple high-end hotel brands throughout the Emirates, not to mention multiple high profile casinos and hotels in the USA.
With the added commitment to the region, the company is gearing up aggressively for expansion and considering a satellite production facility outside Dubai to add further service capabilities for the clients in the region. OWH already has tremendous service advantages there: 1) The company’s main production facility is in Cairo making them a local producer which allows for significantly shortened lead times 2) OWH has the advantage of the Arab Nations Treaty allowing shipments into the Gulf Countries, duty free. 3) OWH offers drastically reduced freight costs than most other source countries, 4) Design staff is positioned in both the Dubai and Cairo offices, which will provide the best possible service available.
OW Hospitality is owned, financially backed and supported by the billion dollar powerhouse, Oriental Weavers Group. The parent company, headquartered in Cairo, and founder, Mohamed Farid Khamis, have given their full commitment to growing OWH’s ability to service the hospitality segment in the Middle East and Africa. These factors, among others, give OW Hospitality a superior competitive edge in the marketplace with true time and cost savings, ultimately benefitting all clients in the MEA region and beyond.
“OW Hospitality is a global leader in high quality Axminster and hand tufted carpets,” said Michael Riley, CEO and Managing Director of OW Hospitality. “We as an organization are completely committed to effectively growing and serving the Middle East and Africa regions and have the support in which to do so. As an advantage over most competitors, we have the full infrastructure already in place and now aggressive growth strategies to further penetrate this uniquely valuable and growing market.”
