METTLER TOLEDO opens new Competence Center at Dubai Science Park to help Middle-East labs and manufacturers enhance their processes and profitability
New 200m2 Competence Center to target petrochemical, food and pharmaceutical industries through technical support on optimizing lab processes and cost efficiencies
9 November, Greifensee, Switzerland — METTLER TOLEDO has launched a new Competence Center at Dubai Science Park that will offer advanced analytical support and training for customers on how the company’s broad range of measuring equipment can enhance industry processes and operations in the Middle East and North Africa.
The advanced support facility will result in process improvements that can enhance throughput and protect profits, said Jean-Claude Alder, General Manager of METTLER TOLEDO Sales International GmbH. “For example, through improving analytical method parameters or advising clients on how to adjust procedures, we can help to ensure they meet productivity, quality and regulatory goals in the most cost-effective way,” he said.
Experts at the Competence Centre will provide guidance on all of METTLER TOLEDO’s lab products – precision balances to titrators and meters. Products specifically designed for samples characterization, such as moisture analyzers, UV/VIS Spectrophotometers and Thermal Analyzers, will also be available for demonstration and use at the center.
“Analytical products find application across many industries, including petrochemicals,” said Alder. “Additionally, certain METTLER TOLEDO technologies may be of particular importance to food and pharmaceutical producers at this time, as industries are facing increasingly stringent regulatory climates and a softening economy globally,” he said.
Experts will also help determine if equipment being considered is the most appropriate for a lab’s intended purpose. Such hands-on training is designed to train operators so they can start with new equipment right away and as an alternative to on-site training.
“The new METTLER TOLEDO Competence Centre is another example of how Dubai Science Park is helping businesses to engage with their customers through training that has the potential to improve understanding of the latest scientific technologies, enhance industry processes and ensure greater accuracy in their work,” said Marwan Abdulaziz Janahi, Executive Director at Dubai Science Park, a member of TECOM Group.
In addition to direct technical assistance, the Competence Center will make it easier for METTLER TOLEDO to support the region’s developing industries through trade show participation. “We expect to make significant contributions to the petrochemical, food and pharmaceutical industries from this regional anchor point,” said Alder.
Partners and customers across the region were given an opportunity to tour the new facility during the launch of the center. “We look forward to showing our valued partners and customers how we can support their research and development, quality and production goals in person,” said Alder.
