Surbiton, Surrey – 27 June 2018 – Viadex Limited, the global IT infrastructure and deployment specialists, have taken the next step in their global expansion programme with the opening of new offices in Dubai’s Marina Plaza. The move coincides with publication of The Sunday Times ‘International Track 200’ 2018 showing that Viadex have entered the Top 50 at number 42, jumping 29 places from their 2017 position at number 71.
The Dubai location puts Viadex close both to the Commercial Bank of Dubai and to the many customers it serves in Engineering, Financial Services, High-tech, Legal, Life Sciences, Media, and the Oil & Gas Industries. The company is investing in this area to further serve the needs of its mid-market, UK-based enterprise clients who have people and IT infrastructure in the GCC region.
The move builds on the organisation’s growing global market presence in four continents, with capabilities called upon in some 130 countries. Viadex also have regional hubs in Singapore, USA, South Africa, Gibraltar, the United Kingdom, and build on their consistent success in in Asia, Africa and the USA.
Viadex co-founder and CEO, Dino Cooper, says: “We have long been assisting UK companies to move into Dubai and the surrounding region, consolidating their global IT supply chain and IT service’s needs. A base in Dubai is the natural next step; we have friends and colleagues there and it will be great to be closer to them. This is an exciting growth part of the world and offers enormous opportunity for Viadex, building on our reputation as one of the top 50 UK companies in terms of international growth.”
International sales account for 51% of the company’s total revenues. In 2017 Viadex completed over 1000 global projects, and to June 2018 it has completed over 600 global projects.
“The next stage of making sure we have market presence to support our customers will be to pinpoint and develop an on-the-ground presence in Brazil, Russia, India and China. The support we are giving clients in expediting their global projects across BRICS is rapidly growing and our experience shows that there’s no real substitute for having resources in-market on the ground.”
Dan Hayden-Hammond, Viadex Managing Director, says: “We offer a truly local service promise which has come to fruition for our customers in more individual global locations than any of our nearest competitors. Over an eighteen-month period we have completed global projects in 104 countries as diverse and far-flung as Tanzania, Cameroon, Bahrain, Taiwan, India and New Zealand.
For UK-based companies with globally dispersed locations our promise is all-encompassing; we know the local market and the complexities of operating there and ensuring quality IT solutions in many of them. From design and configuration through to shipping and logistics and dealing with every aspect of the global transaction we provide an experienced and unified service on both the transactional and the commercial side.
The world is by no means one market but Viadex offer a single pane of glass to see it through, and to ease the pain of global expansion.”
