John Crane opens new service facility at JAFZA.

John Crane has announced the official opening of its expanded and upgraded Middle East and Africa headquarters with a new service and manufacturing facility in Dubai.

The company's original building covered 2,000m 2 in JAFZA, and a new 2,000m 2 service and manufacturing facility has now been built adjacent to this.

The new LEED-certified facility includes one of the world's largest gas seal test rigs. The rig, used to conduct dynamic testing of gas seals, features a customer viewing suite, an on-line witness testing and reporting facility, plus full inspection services.

Full diagnostic, inspection and refurbishment facilities for both wet seals and metal bellows are available at the facility, which also houses a new central parts warehouse.


Ibrahim Aljanahi, Deputy CEO, JAFZA, said: "John Crane's significant investment in JAFZA is a testimony of its commitment to the region."

Ruben Alvarez, MD, John Crane MENA, said: "We are justifiably proud of the outstanding new facilities that the expansion project has delivered.

"Our aim is to be recognised by process and energy industry customers in this area as the automatic provider of choice for engineered solutions.
