Hermes Datacomms opened its new office in Erbil, Iraq. The new facility is in direct response to increasing demand for services from the oil and gas sector in Iraq and will enable the SpeedCast Group to deliver a higher level of service and support in this rapidly growing market.
Osama Oulabi, business unit manager Middle East, said: “Iraq has been a strategic market for Hermes for the past 3 years. With the opening of the company’s newest office in Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan region of Northern Iraq, we are well-positioned for growth in the region.”
“This augments our existing presence in the Middle East, with our two other offices, in Dubai and in Basra, Southern Iraq. We are keen to expand our resources within Iraq and wanted to demonstrate our commitment to our customers in the region, to support them on a local level, with local engineers on hand and 24/7 service and support,” Oulabi added.
“This latest investment represents our commitment to our global energy customers, to provide exceptional customer service and support in the key countries where they operate.” said Pierre-Jean Beylier, CEO of SpeedCast. “With our wealth of experience, strong local presence in key markets and wide portfolio of solutions, SpeedCast, together with Hermes, is poised for growth in the energy sector.”
