We have been active in the Middle East market for over 20 years now, but 2018 was the first year that we decided to exhibit at the Dubai Wood Show.  We are glad we did so.  Not only was it the ideal place to meet with our existing hardwood clients from the Gulf region and far beyond, we were also able to meet new people and make new friends with wood professionals worldwide.  The event succeeds as a gathering place for all the regional players in the timber industry.

For a newly –established company who was barely into its 5th month of operations in the UAE when the event took place, venturing into the Dubai WoodShow was certainly a big leap for H O M A G Equipment Machinery Trading (HEMT). But careful planning, organization and regular coordination with the organizers have proven to be an effective tool at accomplishing our goals for the show. The outcome was astounding. We had the chance to re-connect with long-standing clients; attracted new customers as well as established new contacts. More importantly, the show has helped us secure new business prospects not only in the UAE but also in other areas of the ME region.

In conclusion, the Dubai WoodShow has been a perfect platform for HOMAG group’s up-to-the-minute breakthroughs in the woodworking technology, and it has undoubtedly bolstered our commitment to our customers that with HEMT around, they will surely get to benefit from all product support packages and services that the HOMAG group has made available in the market

Cefla is in the Middle East since more than 20 years,  with a strong organisation since 1999 and with its own branch Cefla Middle East FZE since 2005.
Cefla was born in 1932 and since that time its politic was to be close to the customer and this is the reason why we established that branch while no one was believing yet in the Middle East. We were impressed from a Vision in which we decided to be protagonist and since that time we started in investing in resident technicians to serve our customers. Today we are still the only organisation in all the Middle East that can serve the market with resident technicians specialised in Finishing.
We are offering all kind of solution for the decoration of any kind of support from the painting of the wood furniture until the wrapping and laminations and including the latest technologies of digital printing to arrive to the negative grain effects through the 3D Inert coating for many sectors including the automotive, aerospace , glasses and for wood, metal plastic, fiber cement etc.

We are the undisputed leader in the world and specially in the Middle East but this only because we are working together with our customers choosing the partners that are having our equal vision: we could have never succeed in such actual scale without the strong and loyal support coming from Strategic with its exhibitions and DWS in particular.
We were together in the difficulties and we are still here, deeply believing in a strong future for the Middle East.
