The overall international business contributes 15 per cent of business of Godrej group and Middle East commands significant portion of that figure, added Choudaha



In continuation to its commitment for long term investment in the Middle East region, Godrej also has launched an Experience Centre in Dubai in partnership with Zayani & Co on Thursday. The outlet is located on the Al Ittihad (Dubai-Sharjah Road), showcasing an innovative range of furniture - for offices, laboratories and healthcare segments - security products and locking solutions



"Godrej and Zayani & Co have been partners in the UAE since 1961 and this launch further consolidates their partnership. The centre is spread over an area of 4,200 square feet and is designed to provide several unique experiences to visitors, for instance, a first-of-its-kind replica of a bank vault room complete with strong room door and locker cabinets inside. Viewers are educated about various aspects of security both at home and work. The interio brand displays its entire range of ergonomically designed office furniture besides its new range of health care furniture," said Sumeet Baruah, senior general manager, head of operations Middle East and North Africa
