Established in 1976, the Bahrain-based company Universal Electro-Engineering (UNEECO) considers itself a market leader in providing electrical and electronic engineering solutions in the Kingdom. A large portion of the firm’s success comes from its products imported from around the world, including India.
UNEECO, which established its first assembly plant in Salmabad now operates out of a state-of-the-art facility in BIIP at Bahrain’s Al Hidd Industrial Area.
UNEECO’s Unique Power Switchgears (UPS) Division, has had a storied history with Indian products since 2009. L&T by Schneider Electric India Pvt. Ltd., an Indian technology and engineering company, approached UNEECO’s UPS Division - a gateway to a relationship that now turns over more than BD1.5 million annually.
Other companies associated with the UPS Division include RR Global, Precise Electrical, Modutec, Elmex, Kalpa Electricals and many more, providing products such as electrical components, cables, terminals and accessories.
UNEECO’s Chairman, Mr. Abdulrahman Juma said: “We are continuously impressed overall with the quality and durability of Indian products, and their reputation continues to be improved and recognised. They consistently meet global standards in terms of quality and value for money.”
“We are very happy to continue working with them into the future and appreciate that they are very flexible; they are consistently willing to modify or tailor things to the Bahrain market based on our requests,” he adds.
UNEECO’s Director, Mr. Jayashankar Viswanathan, explained: “We have proudly worked with Indian companies since 2009. We use Indian products to build some of our products including LV power, control panels and distribution boards, in addition to providing capacitor panels to our customers.”
The UPS Division has been involved in several recognisable projects and developments using its extensive portfolio of international products. Imports from India in particular were put to use on some of Bahrain’s biggest development projects. These include: Al Sahel Resort, EWA Pilot Project, Abraj Lulu Project, Mall of Dilmunia, Al Safwa Tower and many more.
