Event is ‘a perfect platform’

Global Source Trading says The Big 5 Saudi has been a boon for the company, having always produced leads and enabled it to negotiate sales following its participation at the event.

According to general manager Mohamed Shawi Aqla Al Anaizy, a key differentiator of The Big 5 is the presence of its target audience at the event, unlike other shows, where it receives mostly retail shoppers.

“We look for customers/stakeholders involved in construction projects and The Big 5 is the right platform to meet such people,” he tells Gulf Construction.

Global Source Trading, which has been participant at The Big 5 Saudi for the past two consecutive years, is an agent for international brands from Germany, Switzerland and France, among others, and will next month (March) complete 25 years of operations in the kingdom.

At this year’s event, the company will be showcasing plastic welding products from Swiss company Leister, professional drill bits from French manufacturer Diager, diamond discs from Germany’s Samedia and Belgium’s Carbodiam, and manhole accessories from Linktech India. This year, visitors will have an opportunity see new ranges available from Leister and Diager.

Established in March 1993, Global Source is an ISO-certified organisation with well-qualified and experienced staff. It recently became a Saudi Aramco-approved vendor in addition to gaining approvals from the National Water Company, Saudi Electricity Company, Modon, and others.

Commenting on business last year, Al Anaizy says it was challenging but this was mainly due to restructuring activities in the country. “We proactively used the time to re-align ourselves for the expected boom in the coming years,” he says.

Global Source is in the process of opening a sales office in Dammam, in addition to setting up a training centre for Leister products in Riyadh. It is also working on the expansion of its e-platform.

The company is currently supplying to key projects in Saudi Arabia including Riyadh Metro and KAP.

Global Source will be at Stand 2F99 at The Big 5 Saudi.
