Sperrin Metal Storage Solutions signed a contract worth around £300,000 at the recent Arab Health trade exhibition, which was held in Dubai from 28-31 January.
Sperrin Metal is the Draperstown-based specialist in storage systems, and the new contract will see Sperrin Metal installing a mobile shelving system for archiving documents and other material in a Ministry of the Interior building at Doha in Qatar.
Sperrin Metal managing director Peter Gormley said: “This is an extremely important deal that will further strengthen our presence in a region that we’ve operated in over many years. The initial approach came via the internet from a leading interior fit-out company in Dubai seeking an experienced Irish partner in the storage industry. They asked us if we’d be interested in working with them to develop the storage solution in Qatar.
Established in 1963, Sperrin Metal is a family owned and managed company that currently employs 100 people in Draperstown in the design, manufacture and installation of a wide range of shelving, storage and mezzanine flooring systems.
