(MENAFN Press) Glenbeigh Records Management (GRM) has officially opened its facility at Dubai World Central (DWC), the world's first purpose-built aerotropolis, today (Day, Janaury 9, 2014) in the presence of H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation, and the Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who is visiting the UAE as part of a trade mission to the Middle East. The event took place during the Enterprise Ireland Trade and Investment Mission to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE.

H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said: "The UAE and Ireland have excellent business relations and what makes our partnership with Glenbeigh even more significant is that it represents a decisive step towards strengthening business and economic ties with Ireland as a whole. We aim to encourage more Irish enterprises to discover the wealth of opportunities that await them in DWC, the Dubai and the whole of the UAE."

The firm has invested AED 25 million in a 70,000 sq ft, purpose-built facility located in DWC, designed and built by its sister company Glenbeigh Construction. The site offers state-of-the-art storage solutions and advanced security systems guaranteed to protect corporate information assets.

Philip Earle, Founder and Chairman, Glenbeigh Group, said: "We are very pleased to continue our international growth with the official launch of our Dubai operations, and honoured to receive the support of H.H. Sheikh Ahmed and Prime Minister Enda Kenny in our efforts.''

Commenting on the impact the UAE location will have on local and international employment, Earle added: "We expect to see significant growth in revenue over the next few years, enabling the company to create jobs for the local Emirati population, as well as generate an anticipated 25 jobs in Ireland as a result of our Middle East expansion. We have already been able to hire a number of new Irish employees across the wider Glenbeigh Group who have been involved in the design and construction of the DWC facility and we look forward to further developing ties between the two countries."

Speaking at the official opening of Glenbeigh's new headquarters in Dubai, the Taoiseach Enda Kenny said: "It is very exciting to see an Irish company like Glenbeigh Records Management achieve so much in such a competitive market. This company continues to impress and grow their business, expanding their client base and broadening their market reach. I greatly welcome their success and their commitment to creating new jobs in Ireland. I extend every good wish to them for continued success."

"Dubai World Central is a vital component for the long-term social and economic development of the emirate. Being chosen as the venue for Expo 2020 has further enhanced its position as an integrated global city providing strategic links with the international markets. The partnership with Glenbeigh Records Management will enable them to tap into the region's growing trade and business, and will find several opportunities not only with the companies establishing their base at DWC but even beyond," Khalifa Al Zaffin, Executive Chairman, Dubai Aviation City Corporation.

"Part of DWC's well-planned strategy is to attract innovative companies to establish their regional operations here. Glenbeigh Records Management's presence here affirms this commitment, and its new facility will definitely open up many new and exciting possibilities for them to offer their unique services in this growing region. We are very meticulous about the key players we attract to ensure that we create an environment for mutual growth and success, and Glenbeigh is an excellent partner in that respect.
