Expanding international ship supplier Hutton’s Group has established an important regional supply hub in Dubai to service its clients in the Middle East. This key location adds to Hutton’s growing global network which provides extensive coverage in the UK, Europe and West Africa.
Operating under the name Hutton’s Global FZE, the Middle East branch will be based at the iconic Jafza One building in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone.
This key location within the free zone area enables Hutton’s to ensure its clients benefit from tax free products and services. This ideal location – half way between Europe and the Far East – creates time zone overlapping which enhances the company’s communication network.
Sales Manager for Hutton’s Middle East branch is Sunny Salve, who has many years of experience in ship chandlery and has previously held roles in West Africa and India. Sunny will provide global account management for Hutton’s clients located in the Middle East region and will ensure Hutton’s is able to efficiently provide a seamless supply chain for vessels operating in the Middle East, Africa and Indian regions. Claire Tyler, Purchasing Manager from Hull, will also operate from the new office to ensure the new team of staff are fully up to speed with the Hutton’s Group first class working practices and systems.
Hutton’s Finance Director, Kay Colgrave, has been responsible for setting up the new facility. She said: “This office will be a key regional supply hub, arranging ship chandlery services throughout the Middle East and India or our clients. This location, half way between Europe and the Far East, has significant benefits and allows us to communicate with clients in this region more easily and provide administrative support for our growing branch network.”
Alex Taylor, Hutton’s Managing Director, said: “With our increasing international client base and comprehensive product ranges at very competitive prices, it makes sense for us to expand in this way by creating a dedicated Middle East facility.”HUTTON’S GROUP EXPANDS ITS GLOBAL NETWORK TO MIDDLE EAST
