Joost Knoll, CEO Hertel: ‘Our strategy to offer our customers a unique integrated spectrum of industrial project and maintenance services anywhere in the world consequently led to Hertel developing sustainable business in the Middle East as many of our key clients invest heavily in this region. In 2006 we already formed a successful partnership with highly respected company Al Masaood Bergum in Dubai. The experience and local know-how of the MSL management and skilled workforce will increase our capacity and expertise in the region. We feel very proud to welcome both MSLS and MSL into our group’.
John Hughes, Director MSL: ‘MSL is delighted to be part of Hertel. The outstanding reputation and expertise of Hertel will help us to expand our range of services. Our clients more and more ask for total services solutions and seek to reduce the number of contractors involved on site. The imbedding of MSL into the Hertel group will enable us to meet with these demands, offering best-in-class, safe and reliable industrial project and maintenance services all delivered from one hand’.
