In the last few months Al Shirawi FM has registered steady performance as it registered revenue figures of $49m (AED180m) in the UAE for the financial year 2017-2018 (June 2017- July 2018). Incidentally, Al Shirawi had an identical turnover figure for FY 2016-2017, which was a 20% year-on-year increase over the preceding FY cycle.
For the current financial year Al Shirawi FM has set a modest target of $52.2m (AED192m) — a 7% year-on-year increase — out of which 4% s already in the kitty.
Making his debut on the FM power list is the Pramodh Idicheria who works in close coordination across all of Al Shiarwi’s business units and has been a key figure in the company’s diversification along with chief executive Navin Valrani.
In terms of number of employees, Al Shirawi has had a drop in the number of staff but that doesn’t reflect on the firm’s relationships with its clients. It still continues to work with Dubai Industrial Park, RTA Tunnels, Business Village, Le Reve Tower, Emirates Crown to name a few.
“One of the significant contracts for us in the last year was an agreement with Al Tayer Group, one of the UAE’s most successful private holding companies where we will we provide MEP maintenance service for all Al Tayer Group’s assets in the country, including 143 standalone stores, 31 automotive showrooms, 20 residential properties and its two prestigious department stores — Harvey Nichols and Bloomingdale’s. This is over and above our IFM contracts for Dubai Economic Development — Triangle Building, Global Village to name a few,” Idicheriya says.
In a previous interview he also said that the reputation of the group, which is not just restricted to the FM side of the business, is built on the company’s core values of trust, transparency, compassion, with honesty and discipline as the mainstay.
