In an opening speech, Mr. Mishal Kanoo said that The Kanoo Group is privileged and honoured to be associated with DP World. He is optimistic that the partnership can help make DP World become more successful and that The Kanoo Group will be proud to be a part of it.

Mr. Esam Khoori also commented that the strategic partnership is a great advantage with mutual benefits which can bring right results, with the right people.

“I would like to thank Kanoo Machinery for their initiative, walking the extra mile with DP World in bringing this business relationship from customers’ to partners’ level. This consignment of spare parts wouldn’t come to reality if not for their efforts and in believing in DP World as a successful international company representing Dubai and the UAE,” said Mr. Jamal Ahmed Al Kindi.

Shakil Merchant, Divisional Sales Manager-UAE, Kanoo Machinery added, “Kanoo Machinery had been looking forward to this day and we have been working hard for a long time to achieve this. At last this deal has come true and is a good association of the business with the consignment stock keeping in DP World.”

As the organiser for the event, Praveen Hubli, Aftermarket Sales Manager-UAE, Kanoo Machinery further said, “The consignment stock concept discussed with DP World was very much appreciated and welcomed. DP World does not have to keep an inventory of spare parts for machines as this is done in Kanoo Machinery premises, and the required parts will be available 24/7. Therefore  efficiency and delivery time are greatly reduced, thus giving immense benefits to both parties.”

This undertaking is another mark of a long-term business commitment that The Kanoo Group shares with DP World. Most recently, Kanoo Machinery has also received the Top Vendor Award for the year 2012 by DP World, as a constant reminder of their good business relationships and dedication that brings business opportunities up to the next level.

Speaking after the conference, Nabeel Kanoo, Director, Kanoo Travel said: “We hosted the initial meeting in Dubai back in 2011 and then decided to host it annually at one of the partner’s home country each year. Choosing Jordan didn’t come as a surprise to anyone, as the safety, beauty and hospitality of this country made it the perfect destination for our 2013 forum. At Kanoo, we always pursue promoting our partners, as well as their countries in an endeavor to reflect their true image. This experience in Jordan will help our partners understand the market better and identify opportunities for future initiatives”. 

He added: “This event is a platform for all our partners to meet annually and discuss new opportunities, share local best practices and exchange thoughts on growth strategies for the future. In a world of globalization as a result of the tremendous developments in the Information Technology and Communications sector, such partnerships and leveraging of each other’s local strengths are essential to help us stay ahead of the international competition we all face in our markets. This meeting is proof of our ambitions in continuing and growing the Kanoo-American Express Network.”
