The new subsidiary office is part of a broader program of investment
that Redline is making in the Middle East, which also includes the
hiring of additional staffing, new channel partnerships, increased
sales and marketing and corporate citizenship.
The expanded presence in Dubai will allow Redline to increase its level
of service to clients and partners across the Middle East and deliver
more advanced and high-value solutions. Redline already serves a number
of key clients in the region, spanning multiple sectors including
telecommunications, oil & gas, and government.
For example, in Oman, Redline is an integral part of a project to replace oil company Petroleum Development Oman's wireless field
communications network. Redline's specialized wireless broadband products are the cornerstone
of a system that will connect over 5,000 well heads, rigs, semi-mobile
units, and gathering stations, providing reliable and resilient data
gathering from drilling units, remote stations and well heads. It will
also support advanced services like video surveillance and will offer
voice and wireless data services to mobile field maintenance crews.
Redline is also working closely with telecom service providers Saudi
Telecom Company (STC), Zain, Etisalat, Orascom and Du - all of whom
support the adoption of wireless communications to deliver connectivity
and access to business, government and consumers.
"Today's announcement signals our intention to strengthen our commitment
to the Middle Eastern Region. We have been selling into the region for
many years but this new office and warehouse will allow us to bring our
team and products even closer to our customers and partners as we work
to deliver new solutions and provide ongoing support to our key
customers," said Eric Melka, Redline CEO. "We see significant business
opportunity in the Middle East and we are actively engaged in becoming
an integral part of the community."
"We welcome Redline's increased presence in the Middle East," said Dr
Samer Taha, CEO of Waseela, a key Redline partner based in Amman,
Jordan with regional offices in Dubai, Riyadh, Dammam, and Jeddah. "We
value our relationship with Redline and look forward to working together to use their solutions to deliver
real value to our end-customers and to drive the development of the
region's economic and social systems."
