 22ed May, 2001

  Dubai, United Arab Emirates

 The Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group, one of the region’s most diverse trading and manufacturing organizations, has signed a deal to buy and sell online through Tejari.com, the Middle East’s premier business-to-business marketplace.  Membership in Tejari will form the cornerstone of the Al Gurg Group’s e-commerce strategy, enabling the trading giant to sell a diversity of products online, ranging from household appliances to cables, steel and furniture.  The Group also plans to procure through Tejari raw materials for its manufacturing units, which produce products including welded steel mesh, heavy duty and decorative paints, furniture, construction chemicals, industrial explosives, electrical switchgear etc.

 The Al Gurg Group anticipates that Tejari will enable it to streamline its tendering and procurement cycles.  The Group will also utilize Tejari to source materials and services for its collaboration with its principals in setting up power and allied industrial projects.

 “Diversification and growth have formed the foundation of our business, and pursuing an e-commerce strategy through Tejari.com will enable the Al Gurg Group to receive the benefits of online procurement and creating an Internet sales channel,” stated the Group’s Chairman, His Excellency Easa Saleh Al Gurg, CBE.

 “As a long-standing member of the Middle East’s business community, we support the growth of e-commerce initiatives like Tejari, which enable this region to compete more effectively in the world economy,” added Al Gurg.

 Over the last four decades, the Al Gurg Group has grown to represent prominent brands including British American Tobacco, ICI, Unilever, Brown & Williamson International Tobacco, Benetton, Siemens, Osram, Armitage Shanks, Stanton, Catnic, Yorkshire Copper Tubes,  Dunlop, Grundig, Heuga and many others.  Tejari membership will enable the Group to create a new channel for working with its global principals.

 “The Al Gurg Group, with its diversity in industry and products, is an ideal member for a horizontal marketplace like Tejari. With the Al Gurg Group on board, our members will have access to thousands of products and services across a number of vital sectors,” stated Lubna Al Qasimi, Managing Director of Tejari.com. 

 “We welcome such a prominent member of the Middle East’s business community to the marketplace.  The e-commerce strategy espoused by the Al Gurg Group demonstrates that regional organizations are moving to embrace new technologies and business models to enhance their competitiveness and profitability,” added Al Qasimi.
