AG Facilities has undergone a bit of a reformation and continues to hold a strong list of contracts given its reputation in the UAE market.
The firm provides FM services for Abu Dhabi Ports, Presidential Flight Abu Dhabi, FM services for 28 residential buildings by Meeras. AG Facilities also provides hard services to the Ministry of Health and Prevention for Umm Al Qwain Hospital, Shaikh Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium in Al Ain, the Crown Prince Court’s facilities and Landmark Mega DC Warehouse in Dubai. Finally the firm provides soft services through MBM to a few FAB bank sites in the UAE along with Landmark Group and various Dubai Municipality properties.
Haneef has earmarked the resurgence of the oil and gas sector as a major opportunity over the next 12 months for the UAE FM sector along with the consolidation and tenure increase of FM contracts and the impact of ICT in service delivery
Amongst some of the challeneges for 2019, AG Facilities says availability of qualified manpower and employee retention are major worries. The severity of the situation increases when you take into the context the near 10,000-employee staff number on AG Facilities’s roster.
