Landis+Gyr opens branch office in the United Arab Emirates

The office will offer the entire Landis+Gyr product range, and will handle technical and sales issues for the region. It will be supported by logistics and contracting from the Landis+Gyr headquarters in Switzerland.

Mid-term goals
The region is one of the fastest growing markets in the world, and for Landis+Gyr local presence is imperative. The office will open in the UAE in October this year, and a launch party will follow in January 2008. The office is located in the heart of the city on Electra Street.

A team of sales and technical staff is locally available to optimise customer support regarding day-to-day business.
