Consulting Firm Hosts United Arab Emirate Dignitary and Helps Purchase
Recycling Equipment From North American Companies
TORONTO, Nov. 30 /CNW/ - Tactical Connections announces that it has
brokered over $100 Million Cdn in waste management contracts to Bee'ah - The
Sharjah Environment Co., a United Arab Emirates based environmental solutions
and services company. Four Canadian companies and one based in the US will
supply everything from tire shredders to recycling bins. The Emirate of
Sharjah is one of the fastest growing commercial locations in the United Arab
Tactical Connections, a Toronto based Business Development and Marketing
Firm, helps Canadian companies expand into the Middle East, Western Europe and
North Africa. Over the past few months the firm has identified and negotiated
local waste management solutions to Bee'ah. Bee'ah's objective is to introduce
recycling by combining public-wide education with specific recycling programs
and initiatives to the Emirate of Sharjah. The Recycling Program will be
implemented in multiple phases over the next several years and once fully
operational the recycling program is expected to divert approximately 400,000
tons of waste from Sharjah landfills per year.
Mr. Brad Kerr, COO of Tactical Connections said, "We are guiding Bee'ah
to introduce recycling gradually in Sharjah. Our goal is to fully support
recycling initiatives that will help transform Sharjah into a 'green' Emirate,
by sourcing the most advanced and efficient equipment and technologies. We are
honored to be helping Bee'ah make such a significant and historic impact, and
we look forward to continued enthusiasm from future programs."
Over the past week Tactical Connections has hosted His Excellency Salim
Bin Mohammed Al Owais, the Chairman of Bee'ah, who came to Canada to complete
Sharjah's Recycling Program agreements. Toronto's Envyrozone Inc. was the
first stop on the Chairman's agenda where he finalized a deal worth almost
$10 million to acquire 5000 recycling bins. These three-stream recycling bins
are identical to the ones in the city of Toronto, which are focused on the
collection of waste from the streetscape.
In addition to recycling bins, the team met with Allianz Madvac of
Boucherville, Que. The company made its biggest single deal to date, by
selling 60 street sweeping and cleaning machines to the Municipality of
Sharjah. The deal was worth more than $8 million.
As a part of the waste diversion mandate of the Bee'ah Recycling Program,
the team negotiated a letter of intent with Shred-Tech Corp. and Recycling
Technologies Corp. (RTI), both of Cambridge ON. Shred-Tech will supply all
machinery for a cryogenics tire recycling facility with RTI - a first of its
kind in Sharjah - to make a variety of consumer and industrial products out of
the rubber. Sharjah has some of the world's largest tire landfills.
Additionally, the group signed a contract with CP Manufacturing Inc., a
National City, California based company, which will provide all machinery for
the Bee'ah material reclamation facility (MRF). The Sharjah MRF facility will
be the largest single sorting and recycling facility in the world in terms of
annual input and throughput. The contract is worth in excess of $25 million.
Another one of the Canadian suppliers is Toronto-based architecture firm
Bregman and Hamann, which is designing 11 buildings for Bee'ah as part of a
$40 million construction contract.
These contracts are in addition to previous contracts already brokered by
Tactical Connections including state-of-the-art waste-hauling trailers from
Titan Trailers Inc. of Delhi, Ont.
Bee'ah, The Sharjah Environment Company LLC., is the first integrated
environmental management company in the Middle East and the largest in the
Arab countries. Bee'ah provides practical solutions for effective waste
management, thus reducing the stress on existing landfill sites. Bee'ah also
provides educational and recycling programs to citizens and businesses, and
works with international research and academic experts to develop new waste
management and recycling technologies and initiatives. www.beeah-uae.com
