Würzburg, 10.07.2024 (PresseBox) – It is with great pleasure that the SKZ Plastics Center has honored the successful partnership with the BMC Gulf Group with the "Premium Partner Education" award. In the United Arab Emirates and the entire Gulf region, BMC Gulf is the specialist for plastic pipeline construction and geosynthetics. Since 2007, BMC Gulf and the SKZ have been setting new standards together: by training plastic welders directly in Dubai, they are bringing German quality and standards to the region.

Henry Ford is said to have once said: "Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress and working together is success." The long-standing collaboration between the SKZ Plastics Center in Würzburg and BMC Gulf in Dubai is an excellent example of how such cooperation and collaboration can lead to success over many years.

Construction boom in the Emirates
The two companies began their cooperation in 2007 due to the construction boom in the Emirates. At that time, trained specialists for welding plastic pipes were hardly available in the region. Fabian Beermann, Managing Partner of the BMC Gulf Group, explains: "In order to avoid installation errors and leaks, it was clear to us that we had to train our entire market and significantly raise the level of quality. The German quality system was the model for this and the SKZ, as a leading service provider and trainer in the plastics industry, was the ideal partner."

New, growing market
Johannes Kocksch, group leader and head of the Joining and Surface Technology Training course at SKZ, adds: "At the time, it was exciting for us to gain a foothold in a new, growing market. The support of an experienced local partner who knows the cultural particularities and already enjoys a high reputation was enormously helpful. This enabled us to contribute our expertise in the training of skilled workers to our mutual benefit."

Success only possible through good partnerships
Reason enough for the Würzburg institute to honor the partnership. This is the first time that the SKZ’s "Premium Partner Education" award has gone to a company outside Germany and was officially presented at the SKZ’s model factory. Benjamin Baudrit, Deputy Managing Director of the SKZ, emphasizes: "You can only be successful in the long term through good partnerships and collaborations with real synergies. This is all the more true in an international environment."

SKZ training courses in demand in the golf region
Both the expertise and the training courses offered by the SKZ are in demand and recognized in the golf region and beyond. The joint work contributes significantly to more sustainable plastic water pipes, from which future generations can also benefit. Customers in the Gulf region can continue to rely on the combined expertise of BMC Gulf and the SKZ.
