FDC Interiors has served the Middle East’s luxury retail and hospitality industries for more than 40 years and recently announced a major new production facility in Dubai’s National Industries Park, launching later this year to manage unprecedented demand in the build up to Dubai Expo 2020.
Company CEO and interior designer Elie Assamad realised his vision to bring superior interior design to the Middle East with FDC Interiors, becoming one of the pioneers that brought the art of creating luxury boutiques into local high-volume production. In fact, FDC’s opening venture was the very first luxury retail project to be built locally in the GCC.
FDC attribute their background as designers as a major factor in setting them apart from other contractors. The company has invested since its beginnings in building its own production facilities to retain total control over the quality and execution schedule of its projects.
Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony for the major new FDC Interiors production facility in Dubai, opening in September, Assamad said: “We design and fit interiors for some of the most famous brands in the world. In prestigious hotels, smart boutiques, corporate offices and restaurants we’ve created the kind of interiors that have transformed spaces into living statements.
“To conform with increasing demand, FDC has expanded its operations throughout the GCC. We have started construction of our new venture in Dubai, a 22,000 sqm production facility in the National Industries Park.”
According to Assamad, the company selected this location due to the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum to build a smart Dubai.
“This vision was a turning point for FDC to expand its investment here,” he added. “Dubai provides a safe and very advanced environment for investment.”
The company also referenced the UAE’s position as a major exporter in the region, a global commercial centre, and most importantly Dubai showcasing to the whole world the true meaning of luxury in the hospitality and retail sectors.
Assamad continued: “FDC’s current growth aims to accommodate the growing demand in the region and the world.
“Our new production facilities in Dubai are set with comprehensive solutions for the entire production process. This move is a strategic start conforming to the fourth industrial generation in production for hotels and luxury boutiques.
“The increase in the production outputs will reinforce our competitive advantage in the market and enable us to provide a variety of products with a high quality and great value. We are projecting a considerable increase in our annual turnover in the short run with our accumulative manufacturing experience, the expanded number of production facilities and our well-trained team.
“FDC will employ the latest digital and industrial technologies to reduce its cost of production and reduce the overall risk of investment. Especially when considering the event of EXPO 2020, which will be major driver for demand of our industrial sector.”
FDC will be showcasing the designs from their latest projects and speaking to the industry about their new production facility opening in September 2018 during the 19th annual edition of The Hotel Show Dubai, taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre that same month: 16-18th September 2018.
