SmartGlass takes advantage of MENA markets

SmartGlass International, the manufacturer of electronically switchable privacy glass, has announced that it is intensifying its expansion drive in the Middle East to take advantage of a new surge in property development and demand for premium-quality electronically switchable glass solutions.

The company further revealed that the Middle East market's drive for premium products and first class services (both at design stage and on site) is one of the main reasons for the expansion plans.Numerous high-profile projects in the Middle East, such as Dubai's recently announced mega real estate project, 'Mohammed Bin Rashid City' with over 100 hotels, planned largest shopping mall in the world, and other state-of-the-art facilities, are also driving demand for its sophisticated switchable glass solutions.

"SmartGlass is changing the way designers in the Middle East create space and allow natural light through the built environment, thus enhancing the human experience. SmartGlass combines the functionality of an opaque wall with the style of clear glass allowing for an innovative and intriguing use of space, light, and glass. We are therefore stepping up our expansion drive in the Middle East to take advantage of the drive for premium high end products and desire for first class services, both of which SmartGlass International can offer. We are also excited to be working on some of the most imaginative and exciting projects that are being built in the Middle East. SmartGlass solutions complement the level of sophistication, prestige and magnitude of the development projects being undertaken in the region," said John O'Gorman, Sales Manager MENA Region for SmartGlass International.

“Such innovation and investment in the Middle East is typical of the current mood” says Derek Burston, exhibition director, Gulf Glass 2013, “and it is not surprising that space reservations for the show in September are already way past what they were at the previous outing in Abu Dhabi in 2011” he adds.
