General Manager, WOM ME.
The new office and shop floor facility for Worldwide Oilfield Machine Middle East and Magnum Technology Centre were inaugurated on November 8, 2012 by Mr. Sudhir Puranik, CEO of WOM and WOM Group of Companies. WOM ME commenced the Middle East operation in 1999 in a 30 sq. meter office with only 3 employees on board, since then WOM ME has expanded to an 11,000 sq. meter state of art facility accommodating 45 employees. The grand opening ceremony was attended by 180 guests that included esteemed customers in the region and WOM representatives from worldwide locations.
All guests were welcomed by UAE’s traditional Ayala dancers and cocktail drinks at a pre-reception area. The ribbon cutting ceremony began at 8:30 pm followed by product displays, speeches and gala dinner. Guests were entertained by a classical music trio and walkabout magician. During his speech, Mr. Puranik revealed the second phase expansion plan of acquiring the adjacent plot of 12,000 sq. meter area for Magnum
Technology Centre. This expansion phase is scheduled to commence early 2013 and is expected to be completed in late 2013 or early 2014.
