Posted on 11th June 2014

Bahrain based Global Mechanical & Electrical Contracting, established in 2007, is planning to enter the markets of Saudi Arabia and Qatar over the next two years, according to Mahmood Kooheji, vice-chairman of the company's parent group.

The MEP contractor, plans to leverage the regional network of its established parent company AJM Kooheji Group to assist its expansion plans into neighbouring GCC markets.

 “As AJM Kooheji Group, we have some business outside Bahrain – in Dubai, Qatar and Iraq,” Kooheji told MEP Middle East. “Hopefully with Global Mechanical in the years to come we will be in the other GCC countries. We have some very specific plans to be in Saudi Arabia within this year and maybe in Qatar in two years’ time.”

 The company also revealed ambitious growth plans for its home market of Bahrain. Global Mechanical & Electrical Contracting attained Grade A contractor status at the beginning of 2014 and AJM Kooheji chief operating officer Sanjeev Awasthi said that this should help the company become a major player in the Bahraini market.

 “Our target, in terms of growth, is to attain at least a 10% market share in the next three years,” said Awasthi.
