GE Oil & Gas is building a new facility including a repair centre at Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza), the subsidiary of US conglomerate GE says.

The 22,700-square-metre facility is expected to open in 2015 and accommodate 300 employees. GE Oil & Gas said the facility will have a dedicated administrative block, workshops, conference rooms and employee welfare amenities.

The project will include an after-market centre, which will deliver control valves and pressure release valves to customers across the Middle East and North Africa.
